Aviation Medical Examiners (AMEs) are private physicians (not FAA employees) who have completed FAA training and subsequently have been given authority to perform flight physicals and issue aviation medical certificates. All AMEs can issue 2nd and 3rd class certificates. Senior AMEs also may issue first-class certificates required for airline transport pilots. Flight schools, including LIFT Academy, often require students to obtain a First Class Medical to begin training.
Medical certificate duration is dependent on pilot age, class of certificate and pilot occupation (student, transport, sport pilot, etc.). You can learn more on this government website.
Drs. Keith and Maureen Huff are graduates of IU School of Medicine. Both Dr. Keith and Maureen Huff are Senior AME certified. Combined they have 17 years of AME experience.
