Post New medical relief from the FAA

"In April, a new program from FAA Medical in Oklahoma City was quietly rolled out. It has big implications for many pilots, and will no doubt speed up the medical issuance process. But, of course, there are pitfalls too"

Very interesting. I wonder how closely the FAA is tracking the move in Congress (House of Representatives and the Senate) to waive the requirement for a Class III Medical. From what I understand, the FAA wouldn't move on it so Congress has decided to "get the ball rolling."

I have recently experienced this new process and it seems to have made things much quicker. My Dr. has had a lot of experience in dealing with the FAA so she knew everything they were looking for.

I think there are two things we're talking about here.

First, there is legislation to do away with the class 3 with varying "rules" having to due with a/c weight, # pax, VFR, etc.

Second, you now fill out the FAA medical form online and the AME accesses it during the exam. It's password protected. I'll know more about this next month

I have diet controlled diabetes. A1c was never above 6.7, now is 5.6. Does this need to be reported to AME at every physical?

This is really nice and unique process. My brother had this experience.
