    I have some headache problems and my examiner submitted my data for deferred examination on the FAA website.

    The results have yet to come back but let's suppose that I fail on this one - can I apply for an examination again after a certain period of time - For instance, when my conditions are better?

  • There are two processes you can go through if your medical is denied - one is to appeal the denial to the FAA (which you'd do if your AME messed up and you can prove they're wrong), the other is to reapply (which is probably what you'll want to do if you get denied).

    When you reapply you're basically starting the medical certification process over from the beginning. You can reapply right away if you want, but practically you would reapply when you've corrected whatever condition(s) caused you to be denied, and go back to your AME with documentation showing that your condition has been corrected (or determined to be benign).

    I assume based on your question that you've had to check the "Frequent or Severe Headaches" box, so you will continue to check that box, and may require a Special Issuance medical because of that -- your AME can give you more details if you wind up in this situation.


    If you do get denied talk to your AME (and any other doctors you may be seeing) about your next steps before doing anything - obviously medical issues are serious not just because they keep you out of the sky but because your health is important.

    You may also want to take advantage of AOPA's Pilot Protection Services - they have folks on staff who are experts at navigating the FAA medical process and can help you out. It could be worth it if you anticipate you'll need assistance with medical certification over the long haul.

  • I have not even an idea about how I would search for that on Google, that is why I'm trying my chance here. As electrical engineer I have no clue about fluid mechanics.

  • In the last year, I have had to undergo bypass surgery. I am fully recovered now (and past the mandatory 6-month waiting period), but have just been apprised by my AME that my 3rd class medical deferral is likely to take a month or two for the FAA to process. I am also in a partnership, and our insurance requires annual recurring training. Normally, all four of us (partners) take the recurring training at the same time, and get a discounted rate as a result. As fate would have it, this year's recurring training will fall into the time I am waiting to hear back from the FAA. Since the flight

  • I was taught during my private pilot training to only provide the minimum information necessary to the FAA when they ask for something so that you don't open yourself up to more scrutiny. In that spirit, what am I legally required to provide to an FAA inspector during a ramp check? If they ask for something, can I tell them "No" or "I will respond to that in writing within 30 days after I have my lawyer review your question"? In my car, I can refuse to let them look inside unless they have a search warrant. Does the same apply with a private airplane?

  • In a flight database that I'm working with on a project, there is a column of data called "flightCategory" with values "C", "G", "T", etc. Any idea what those actually mean? From what I understand, the database is from FAA. But I'm not 100% sure.

  • of the date of examination shown on the medical certificate. So this clearly states that if I pass my medical on January 1st 2014 then my medical is good until the end of the day on January 31st 2015. ICAO Rule: However, I have been told that ICAO rules state that the medical expires 12 months to the day from when it was issued, which would mean that it would no longer be valid as of January 1st, 2015. (A reference for this would be great.) Question: As the holder of an FAA pilot license, with the above FAA issued medical, may I legally fly outside of the US after January 1st 2015

  • I know it's a bit odd, but I like using my TI-89 graphing calculator in addition to an E6B when doing calculations. It helps me avoid dumb arithmetic errors. I read the section "Use of Test Aids and Materials" of Recreational Pilot and Private Pilot Knowledge Test Guide (FAA-G_8082-17). It seems to meet all of the requirements except (d), which I don't really understand: The use of magnetic... have a definitive answer on whether these types of calculators are permitted?

  • need and need to find a source for this data. I'm looking for data that defines the extents of airspaces including MOAs, restricted areas, etc. I have been pouring through the FAA's website with no luck. The link I referenced above says its source was the National Aeronautical Charting Office (NACO), which I'm having very little luck finding as well. I think it may have been renamed, thus the poor results. I also called the FAA and can't seem to find anyone there that knows where to transfer me. So, does anyone here have any helpful pointers on finding said information? I want to pull
