Medical 101

Have you ever wondered how the FAA’s medical process works? More importantly, have you ever wondered what options you have if you encounter a health complication?

In the article, Williams outlines not only the tradition medical process, but also some of the alternative certification paths that might be helpful in getting back into the air.
