Medical Examiners in the State of Hawaii

Medical Examination

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires all pilots acting as Pilot in Command (except Sport Pilots and Glider Pilots) to complete a medical examination administered by a designated examining physician.  An FAA physical typically includes an examination of the eyes, general limitations, and general health condition.  Upon completion of the medical exam, pilots are issued an FAA medical certificate.  A medical certificate will include the airmen's information along with any stated limitations, such as the need for corrective lenses.

Only applicants that are fit to fly will be granted a certificate.  Airmen are denied issuance of an FAA medical certificate if any condition arises that would create a hazard in operating an aircraft.  In some instances, the denial of issuance of a medical certificate may be appealed through the FAA.

In Hawaii, FAA medical examinations typically cost $80-120.  See the list of designated physicians for the State of Hawaii down below.

Privileges

Private pilots must hold at least a Third Class Medical Certificate (exam every 36 calendar months for pilots under the age of 40; 24 calendar months for pilots over 40).  Pilots exercising Commercial Pilot privileges must hold at least a Second Class Medical Certificate (exam every 12 calendar months).  Airline Transport Pilots must hold the most meticulous First Class Medical Certificate (exam every six calendar months).

Any valid medical certificate may be used for third class medical privileges for up to 24 (40+ years of age) or 36 calendar months (under 40 years of age).  A first class medical may also be used as a second class medical for up to 12 calendar months.
