Beginning October 1, 2012, the FAA will require airmen to complete form 8500-8, application for a medical license, on-line.

Airmen will need to go to the FAA MedXPress website.  After completing and submitting your application, the FAA will issue you a “confirmation number”, which you must provide to your Aviation Medical Examiner when you schedule your physical exam.

Full information is available on the FAA website “Aerospace Medical Certification Subsystem (AMCS) Online Support” at:
