An Airman Medical Certificate revocation may be initiated under many circumstances. The US Code of Federal Regulations Section 67.403(c)(1) provides for revocation or suspension of a medical certificate if you entered an incorrect statement on an application for a medical certificate, upon which the FAA relied. The Regulation states:
(c) The following may serve as a basis for suspending or revoking a medical certificate; withdrawing an Authorization or SODA; or denying an application for a medical certificate or request for an authorization or SODA:
(1) An incorrect statement, upon which the FAA relied, made in support of an application for a medical certificate or request for an Authorization or SODA.
(2) An incorrect entry, upon which the FAA relied, made in any logbook, record, or report that is kept, made, or used to show compliance with any requirement for a medical certificate or an Authorization or SODA.
Even if it is determined that the pilot did not intentionally give a false answer to Item 18 on the application for a medical certificate, the FAA can and often does pursue an enforcement action against the airman.
