I had my medical with a height of 74, I’m only 66.

it was filled wrong by the AME, is it possible to be corrected by the AME ? 

I received my Letter from the FAA, however, it only addressed one of the SSRI's I took. Is it common that the FAA would only ask about 1 condition at a time?

The 2021 Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners states that, “An individual may be considered for an FAA authorization of a Special Issuance (SI) or Special Consideration (SC) of a Medical Certificate (Authorization) if…”, in addition to other things, "…the applicant DOES NOT have symptoms or history of:

What is the current timeframe, amid the chaos of the pandemic, should I expect to hear from the FAA on its determination of my deferred medical?

My Class 2 was deferred by my AME in April. I submitted what I hope was appropriate documentation back to the FAA on June 1st, with confirmed receipt on June 3rd. It’s been over 60 days now and I’m beginning to get concerned I haven’t heard anything.

Hi everyone,

I am interested in obtaining my PPL and then continuing on with Multi-Engine, Instrument Rating, Commercial, and ATP. For the latter, I am aware of the requirement to obtain a class 1 medical.

My OCD originally manifested as general anxiety and germaphobia which I no longer have any manifestations of. How would this ...
Hello, I am a Private Pilot and was 8 hours from my checkride for Instrument. 
on January 8, 2021, I got covid, which led to three pulmonary embolisms. My doctors have said I should be 100% recovered and off meds by May 11, 2021. 
My question, if anyone can help, is what are my reporting requirements, and when will I be allowed to fly. 
Without knowing the law, I am NOT flying, nor do I intend to until or unless I can answer the questions. To be honest, I'm afraid to ask the AME, ...
I had reverse shoulder replacement surgery in July of 2020.   After surgery I had a blood clot in my lower right leg below the knee.   I took a blood thinner for 3 months (coumadin).   After the three months of medication, an follow up ultrasound showed the blood clot had healed and no further medication or follow up was necessary.

Will I be able to get my 3 rd class medical renewed in August of 2021?   If not can a receive a Basic Medical

Hello Everyone,
I'm seeking guidance and clarification on this whole SSRI process. I have read tons of material and documentation from the FAA website and countless forums, but none of them quite given me clear information.

Background: I am an Army Vet and full-time Army Reservists with 19 years of service, ERAU graduate, about to retire from the military, and want to transition careers to become a professional pilot. I deployed to Iraq in 2004-2005 during the climax of ...
I have cataracts developing and will need surgery before long. I've been researching the different types of lens implants and would really appreciate opinions and advice from fellow pilots with recent cataract surgery as to which type of lens implants work best for flying.
I want to laminate my first-class medical certificate so it doesn't get crumpled for any reason. Will this invalidate it? I've done some research online and there only seem to be provisions for laminating permanent certificates, of which the medical is a temporary certificate.
