Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners

Application Process for Medical Certification

General Information - Airman Appeals Request for Reconsideration

An Examiner's denial of a medical certificate is not a final FAA denial. An applicant may ask for reconsideration of an Examiner's denial by submitting a request in writing to:

Federal Aviation Administration
Aerospace Medical Certification Division
CAMI Building 13, Room 308, AAM-300
P.O. Box 25082
Oklahoma City, OK 73125

The AMCD will provide initial reconsideration. Some cases may be referred to the appropriate RFS for action. If the AMCD, or a RFS finds that the applicant is not qualified, the applicant is denied and advised of further reconsideration and appeal procedures. These may include reconsideration by the Federal Air Surgeon and/or petition for National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) review.
