Before you can complete a flight physical, you need to complete the online Form 8500-8 (APPLICATION FOR AIRMAN MEDICAL CERTIFICATE OR AIRMAN MEDICAL & STUDENT PILOT CERTIFICATE). This form can be found at https://medxpress.faa.gov/medxpress/
BRING PAPER COMPLETED FORM FROM MEDXPRESS WITH CONFIRMATION NUMBER FOR THE VISIT
[The FAA MedXPress system allows anyone requiring an FAA Medical Certificate or Student Pilot Medical Certificate to electronically complete the FAA Form 8500-8. Information entered into MedXPress will be transmitted to the FAA and will be available for your AME to review at the time of your medical examination.-excerpt copied from FAA website]
Once you have completed the Form 8500-8, you will receive a confirmation email that contains a confirmation number. You don’t have to complete this online form before you call to schedule an appointment, but it will save you from having to call back if you do take the time to complete it first.
We recommend you print a copy of your completed form to bring with you to your appointment.
Bring all documentation for any special issuances you may have. Please make your appointment 3 months in advance if you have special issuances. Click here for more information on special issuances and information you may need.
For veteran pilots, be sure to schedule your flight physical well in advance of your license expiration date. It may help keep your blood pressure in an acceptable range.
