  • Be sure each page you submit is legible and includes your name, the date, and any identification numbers assigned in letters from the FAA.
  • Make sure your contact information is current in the FAA’s MedXPress system.
  • Be certain that all letters including summaries from physicians are signed and dated.
  • Check your information packet to assure that it includes all information the FAA requested.
  • Keep copies of everything you send.
  • Review the Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners to determine what’s required for each diagnosis.
