FAA Status Check Request

The online status request form allows you to provide us with the necessary information to conduct a status check on your records. All information with an asterisk * is required before we can conduct an inquiry for you. The more data we have to work with, the easier it will be to locate your file at the FAA. Please click the button to go to the online status request form.

We’d like to offer a few tips that will help us get to your case more quickly, and by following these guidelines, the FAA may get to your case sooner as well, meaning your medical certificate is issued sooner. Please download the “Guidelines for submitting records to AOPA Pilot Protection Services”—and get your answers as quickly as possible.

To speak with an AOPA medical certification specialist, please call 1-800-872-2672, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday.
