You need a medical certificate before flying solo in an airplane, helicopter, gyroplane, or airship. We strongly suggest you get your medical certificate before beginning flight training.
This will alert you to any condition that would prevent you from becoming a pilot before you pay for lessons.
If you are going to pilot a balloon or glider, you don't need a medical certificate. All you need to do is write a statement certifying that you have no medical defect that would make you unable to pilot a balloon or glider.
Medical certificates are designated as first-class, second-class, or third-class. Generally, first-class is designed for the airline transport pilot; second-class for the commercial pilot; and third-class for the student, recreational and private pilot.
Medical certificates can be issued in many cases where physical disabilities are involved. Depending on the nature of the disability, you may have some operating limitations. If you have any questions, contact Dr. Garrison, an FAA-authorized Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) before beginning flight training.
Why schedule an annual wellness visit?
Yearly "Wellness" visits: If you've had Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get this visit to develop or update a personalized prevention help plan to prevent disease and disability based on your current health and risk factors. Your provider will ask you to fill out a questionnaire, called a “Health Risk Assessment,” as part of this visit. Answering these questions can help you and your provider develop a personalized prevention plan to help you stay healthy and get the most out of your visit. It also includes:
A review of your medical and family history
Developing or updating a list of current providers and prescriptions
Height, weight, blood pressure, and other routine measurements.
Detection of any cognitive impairment
Personalized health advice
A list of risk factors and treatment options for you
Evaluation of balance problems
Screening and assessment for depression
Typically 100% covered by Medicare
