NEW REQUIREMENT BY FAA FOR YOUR MEDICAL
FAA MEDXPRESS SYSTEM FOR OBTAINING YOUR MEDICAL
The following was copied from the FAA MedXPress Web site:
“The FAA MedXPress system allows anyone requiring an FAA Medical Certificate or Student Pilot Medical Certificate to electronically complete the FAA Form 8500-8. Information entered into MedXPress will be transmitted to the FAA and will be available for your AME to review at the time of your medical examination.
NOTE: A medical examination by an FAA-designated Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) is required to complete the certification process. The FAA MedXPress system is not available for submission of Agency ATC exams at this time. “
Starting 10/1/12, anyone going for their medical must first complete FAA form 8500-8 online. This online form is the same one we have previously completed by hand in the AME’s office, so at least that will look familiar.
After completing the form online, you will be issued a confirmation number. On arriving at your AME’s office, you will give him/her that number; they will pull up your online form. Once your examination is accomplished, they will complete your form and forward it electronically to the FAA.
So yes, you must now have an e-mail address to accomplish this process. You must also obtain a log-in from the FAA website at https://medxpress.faa.gov BE SURE TO TAKE THE CONFIRMATION NUMBER WITH YOU TO GIVE TO YOUR AME.

was marking her chart in Nebraska.
Her route was to Wooster,
but somebody goosed her,
and Mabel wound up in Alaska!

NEW VIRGINIA RILEY AVIATION AWARD
The Virginia Chapter Ninety-Nines has decided to make a one-time aviation award in the amount of $350 available to any female pilot in Virginia. This award can be used for flight training or for an aviation-related educational project. Application will be made by writing a letter detailing how the money will be spent.
The award is named for our charter member Mary Virginia "Ginny" Riley who deceased this past year.
The possibility of making the award an annual event will depend on results of our fund-raising efforts. The award will be made next spring so keep your eye on this space for more details.
