FAA/aviation montage


All (Class I, II, III) FAA exams are $150.00.

A baseline EKG is necessary for Class I exams at ages 35 through 39 then annually starting at age 40 until you no longer require a Class I certificate. Class II and Class III do not routinely require an EKG, but it may be necessary in some cases. If an EKG is required, there will be an additional $40.00 charge. Please note, this is an administrative physical and is generally not covered by medical insurance. We are unable to bill your carrier for this service. You must pay in full prior to examination.

Effective February 15, 2024, there will be a $25.00 for your AME to upload additional documents required by the FAA to your MedExpress file.
