Application Process for Medical Certification

General Information - Replacement of Medical Certificates

Medical certificates that are lost or accidentally destroyed may be replaced upon proper application provided such certificates have not expired. The request should be sent to:

Federal Aviation Administration
Civil Aerospace Medical Institute, Building 13
Aerospace Medical Certification Division, AAM-331
P.O. Box 25082
Oklahoma City, OK 73125-9867

The airman's request for replacement must be accompanied by a remittance of two dollars ($2) (check or money order) made payable to the FAA. This request must include the:

  • airman's full name and date of birth;
  • class of certificate;
  • place and date of examination;
  • name of the Examiner; and
  • circumstances of the loss or destruction of the original certificate.

The replacement certificate will be prepared in the same manner as the missing certificate and will bear the same date of examination regardless of when it is issued.

In an emergency, contact your RFS or the Manager, AMCD, AAM 300, at above address or by facsimile at 405-954-4300 for certification verification only.
