AMEPilot logo first edition spring 2019

Dr. Hanker’s primary goal as an Aviation Medical Examiner and the author of AMEPilot is to assist the local aviation community in obtaining their medical certification, especially complex cases where FAA special authorization may be necessary.
AMEPilot is a quarterly authored contribution written exclusively for SCAUWG.ORG.

The FIRST EDITION - SPRING - addresses the behind the scenes, rarely known items about how to prepare for and what YOU CAN DO to make your Medical proceed easy and fast!  Underlying medical issues can be addressed successfully.  When properly prepared and with the proper documentation, only a very small percentage of applications for a medical certificate are denied.  Dr. Hanker details how you can mobilize your application for success within the best possible timeframe.  The editions that follow continue to provide you with the important data that will help you facilitate your medical application as well as stay in the best possible health.
