With only a few exceptions (non-commercial balloon pilots and sport pilots), every pilot must pass an FAA-prescribed aviation medical exam. Air transport and commercial pilots must pass a First- or Second-class medical exam. Private pilots must pass either a third class or a Basic Med exam.
Most professional flight training programs require a First-class medical to begin their training program. Dr. Shreder and the team at Aviation Medical Solutions is your trusted partner in obtaining and maintaining your First, Second, or Third-class medical.
Basic Med is ONLY applicable to pilots that have previously passed an FAA Third class exam at least once after 2006. Certain conditions require a one-time FAA Special Issuance Medical.
