FAA AME Assisted Special Issuance (AASI) Process
is a process that provides the Airman Medical Examiner (AME) the ability to
airman medical certificate to an
applicant with certain disqualifying conditions. At the time of the initial medical
examination for a certificate the AME will do the exam, and forward the results and the diseases-specific
information to the FAA or contact the FAA Regional Flight Surgeon for approval.
FAA staff physicians provide the initial certification decision and the
application is approved or denied. If the FAA approves the application, the
Airman receives an authorization letter accompanied by an attachment that
specifies the information that the applicant must provide from his/her
treating physician(s) for recertification. When you return for the
renewal of you medical certificate, you bring the authorization letter in, the required medical
information, and if the condition has not changed and you are otherwise
qualified the AME will issue the certificate.
These standards may be updated at any time.
