FAA physicals are special physical examinations that meet the requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration. Being a pilot can be demanding, and as aviation's governing body, the FAA put essential guidelines in place to protect your health and aviation safety.
To be a pilot, you must be in a healthy condition. While there is some flexibility, generally, you can expect to need:
Certain conditions may inhibit your ability to pass the FAA physical guidelines, such as diabetes or coronary heart disease. However, don’t be discouraged, as the Green Country Medical: Nowata Family Medicine experts can provide exceptional treatments to help make you flight-ready.
The experts generally start with a review of your medical history. They’ll go over your current medications and any allergies you may have.
The experts will measure your height and weight to make sure there is no excessive weight gain or loss, as that may indicate an underlying illness. From here, the team will perform various visual and sensory tests to ensure proper bodily function.
Common tests include visual acuity exams, reflex tests, and skin assessments. Physicals require contact between you and your provider as they will need to check your lymph nodes. They will also use a stethoscope to detect potential heart rhythm abnormalities.
The average physical takes 15 to 30 minutes to assess your body from head to toe. The team must be thorough to avoid any potential signs of illness. Moreover, the FAA trusts that your provider examines your body thoroughly to sign official documentation.
