225 Pilot Program Question

Jacob476
New Arrival

If I currently have a valid flight physical through the United States Air Force, would I still need to acquire a separate civilian medical examination?

 

I am currently an aircrew member, non-pilot.

Hi there, Jacob! Great question! 

You would still need to obtain an FAA First-Class Medical Certificate for the Destination 225 program. You wouldn't need this certificate in hand to apply or interview, but it would be required to complete the process. We ask that you start the process of obtaining that certificate at the time you apply!
