FAA medical examination

Individuals seeking a private pilot certificate must obtain at least a third-class medical certificate before they solo. The FAA Medical Examination is a routine exam administered by FAA designated doctors called aviation medical examiners (AMEs), who will issue your medical certificate after the exam.
Even if you have a physical handicap, medical certificates can be issued in many cases. Operating limitations may be imposed depending upon the nature of the disability.
