Most Pilot Certificates require a medical certificate which is issued after a successful physical examination by a FAA designated Aviation Medical Examiner. The denial of a medical certificate can be complicated and costly to rectify, if you have any questions about your health, any underlying conditions, or regular medications you should discuss these issues with your flight instructor prior to scheduling the exam. A call to medical certificate specialists at the Experimental Aircraft Association, or the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association might be worthwhile.
