2️⃣ - The Purpose Of Your FAA Medical Certification

The FAA has determined that all airmen shall be examined to determine their fitness for aviation duty.  

In addition to certain exclusionary criteria, the FAA is interested in determining if the airman is likely to become incapacitated during the course of his duty.  With these goals in mind, the FAA requires Aviation Medical Examiners to address the following questions:

• Are any medical exclusionary conditions present?
• Does the airman present any condition that might reasonably result in incapacitation?
• Are other factors present which may affect the airman in the duties for which he is applying?
