USAFSAM Medical Flight Standards Branch

The Medical Flight Standards Branch (MFS) is the arm of the Aeromedical Consult Service (ACS) of the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine that specializes in Medical Flight Screening evaluations. HQ AFROTC, National Guard Bureau (ANG), and HQ Air Force Reserve (AFRC) route their USAF Flying Class I (FCI) pilot candidate medical examinations as well as IFCII-- Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) pilot medical examinations to us. We combine these examinations with the Medical Flight Screening requirement. FAA Class 3 medical certificates are simultaneously accomplished, as needed, for those who accomplish their initial flight physical with us. 

General Info

Please complete our pre-screening process 30-45 days prior to your appointment.

All FCI physical examinees are to report to their designated locations at 0700 hours Monday morning! All examinees will be notified the week prior, via e-mail, of their designated reporting location. The ROTC duty driver(s) for the week will have the group roster(s).

MFS "Only" Thursday 0730 hours SHOWTIME:
"MFS Only" evaluations are by definition for those, generally active duty pilot selects, who had their FCI or IFCII-RPA examination already accomplished at a location other than USAFSAM or USAFA which are routinely stamped "FCI qualified by HQ AETC/SGPS -- pending MFS evaluation".

These "MFS Only" appointments are booked through AFPC, ANG, or AFRC depending on who you're assigned with. Appointments start at 0730 hours each Thursday. Consideration for your appointment start time has been made if you take the Shuttle from WP Lodging, since it does not pick up until 0700 hours.

MFS Only appointments may carry over into the next day so departure reservations should be routinely set for after 1400 hours the day following your appointment date.

E-mail if you have had PRK/LASIK with your pre & post surgery reports (usually 30-40 pages). This is also a good e-mail box to ask MFS Only evaluation questions.

All MFS Only evaluations should click on the blue "Medical Flight Screening" icon below for additional reporting instructions continued from your training RIP which includes more details and requirements of what your evaluation includes. Only those with an existing initial aeromedical waiver for medical history of corneal refractive surgery are qualified to come for a MFS Only evaluation (must be at least 6 months after PRK/LASIK surgery completion).

If you have been selected for an examination to pilot a large Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), there are a few administrative steps you need to complete prior to your RPA pilot physical exam appointment. All pre-administrative requirements must be accomplished 30 days prior to your appointment to avoid last minute medical records requests which could result in rescheduling or cancellation of your appointment. As you proceed, please read all the information carefully and make sure you have completed everything before moving on to the next step; this will ensure you do not miss any requirements.  -- CLICK HERE
