If you're doing flying for recreational purposes, you might just want to work with your local AME.

Paid medical consulting services are more for professional pilots, for whom time is of the essence due to income loss.

And even then it can take years and years as you inevitably get caught up in the circular logic and blatant incompetence of the Federal Air Surgeon's office.

Which is why so many professional pilots hide their problems from their AME and the FAA or simply fail to get the help they need. It's been this way forever. And will never change until the entire system is gutted and revised.

AMAS’s big draw is they’ll know more about what needs to be submitted for the most expedient release to return to flying. It is more feasible for professional pilots who rely on their certificate to live. But from what I’ve seen they are definitely worth it, especially if you work for an ALPA carrier.

Red face OK Aviation Medical Consulting is Great!

Iíve read a few hate posts on here, but I assume not everyone is satisfied because they didnít get approved and are upset? Well, Iíve been on a 1st class special issuance for a few years. I retained OK Aviation Medical Consulting years ago and they got me approved during a very sensitive and complex time in my life. They continue to serve me bi-annually and I never worry about being grounded. Maybe those who didnít get approved were because they had more than what they initially stated. I heard that can be an issue. Yes if you feel going to an AME or AOPA is helpful, go for it. I just know in my experience I needed help with putting my medical together and making sure it was favorable before going to my medxpress or AME. I was about to lose my job and my home. I donít care about a few dissatisfied people. I will be forever grateful to Lisa and her company. You have my highest recommendation. People need to stop hating. Just follow your instinct. If they can help you, great. If not, good luck finding someone who can.

People think OK Aviation Medical Consulting is just one person. Lisa. She has a staff that work directly at the FAA and also an AME who assists when needed. She also has sister companies with Aviation Attorneys Unite. OK Aviation Medical Consulting got me approved and continued to get me approved under a special issuance every 6 months. Donít believe everything negative you hear. Good luck

I agree 100% ... everyone I have contacted at Faa have been great.

AMAS was good for a couple of years ... until I was assigned a doctor that was trying to scare me ... dumped them.
