Your FAA Medical Denial

by The Pilot Lawyer |April 14, 2023|

Pilots go through vigorous training just to get their license.  You have to obtain flight hours, pass written tests, pass practical tests, and finally maintain a valid medical certificate.

And all this effort can go to waste if the FAA denies your medical certificate. All the years you spent grinding it out for your pilot license becomes wasted time and energy.

That’s the bad news!

The good news is that there are trained lawyers who can help clients navigate the complex legal process of appealing a denial or even a suspension on your behalf.
