As military pilots transition to civilian life, and wish to continue to fly professionally or personally, they have to go through the FAA’s medical application process. Unlike their time in the military, which does not require an FAA medical certificate.
We have helped Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard military pilots with their transition to a civilian flying career. If a pilot has an issue in their past, such as a DUI conviction or arrest, or a medical or mental health condition which may not have been an issue in the service, it may be an issue with the FAA medical certification division. If you are receiving, or plan to receive, VA compensation for PTSD or other mental health or medical condition, Barnett Law Offices can review and advise how that may affect your FAA medical application process.
We help pilots correctly disclose information to the FAA, and provide assistance through application process, which ultimately helps them make a smooth transition to an aviation career. The FAA application process can begin while the airman is actively serving, and we can take advantage of an early start.
