FAA Exams


The Federal Aviation Administration requires that pilots and other required crew members of an aircraft hold a current medical certificate. Certificates and physicals can only be given by certified Aviation Medical Examiners (AME). Dr. Graff at Healthy Partners Primary Care has been commissioned by the FAA to conduct flight physicals for almost 20 years and can issue certificates in all 3 pilot classifications.

Flight physicals cover a wide variety of areas, including:

  • Comprehensive history & physical
  • Comprehensive vision testing
  • Digital 12 lead EKG suitable for transmission to FAA for 1st class exams

Prior to your appointment, go to the FAA MedXPress web site to complete your forms. At the end of your application, the system will give you a confirmation number.

You must submit your portion of the 8500-8 application to the FAA before you will be given your confirmation number. Bring the confirmation number and a government-issued photo identification to your appointment.

If you wear contact lenses, please bring your case and solution as you will need to remove them for the eye exam. If you wear glasses, you must bring them with you for the exam!
