Pilot Minute Video Describes Accelerated Way to Send Medical Documents

Is there a way to reduce the wait time for your medical application review? In a recent episode of the Pilot Minute video series, Federal Air Surgeon Dr. Susan Northrup explains how AMEs can expedite medical certification by using the AMCS documents upload feature during and after an exam. Uploaded documents are routed directly to an examiner’s inbox, allowing the FAA to review the application more efficiently.
