How can I locate an FAA medical examiner?
Flight students wishing to medically ground must first contact their flight instructor AND may come to Health Services, or do so electronically and submit a query before your activity start time. Phone calls to Health Services are not applicable to ground or unground from flights.
This is accessible in ETA under the “Links” icon.
(Links > Request For > Ground > Ground Type > Medical Check Statement of Understanding and submit query)
Information will be electronically stamped for the date and time of submission. You, the Flight Department and Health Services will receive an email confirmation of the medical ground. You will be required to go to Health Services during business hours to support your flight ground. If Health Services is closed or if you are not well enough to come in, you must then be seen on the next business day to avoid a “no show.”
To become un-grounded (minimum of 24 hours from initial request), you must return to Health Services to be seen and evaluated. A nurse will document your release time in ETA.
For questions regarding the policy for flight groundings, please email MCCANDD3@erau.edu.
