Medical History from Pilot Applicant Seeking Airman Medical Certification
Item 18s: Medical Rejection by Military Service
Guidance is compiled and interpreted by professional pilots and physicians at FlightPhysical.com from the 2014 AME Guide pages 33-40, FAA and FDA web data (www.FAA.gov & www.FDA.gov), instructions specified in the Aeronautical Information Manual, Federal Air Surgeon Bulletins from 1999-2015, and 14 CFR Part 61 and Part 67 (the FARs).
18.s. Medical rejection by military service. The AME should inquire about the place, cause, and date of rejection and enter the information in Item 60 Comments. It is helpful if the AME can assist the applicant with obtaining relevant military documents. If a delay of more than 14-calendar days is expected, the AME should transmit FAA Form 8500-8 to the FAA with a note specifying what documents will be forwarded later.
Disposition will depend upon whether the medical condition still exists or whether a history of such a condition requires denial or deferral under the FAA medical standards.
