Application Process for Medical Certification

Applicant History - Item 18. Medical History
s. Military rejection by military service

The Examiner should inquire about the place, cause, and date of rejection and enter the information in Item 60. It is helpful if the Examiner can assist the applicant with obtaining relevant military documents. If a delay of more than 14-calendar days is expected, the Examiner should transmit FAA Form 8500-8 to the FAA with a note specifying what documents will be forwarded later.
