BasicMed is an alternate way for pilots to fly without holding an FAA medical certificate as long as they meet certain requirements. Just take the right FAA Form 8700-2 and the BasicMed Comprehensive Medical Examination Checklist (CMEC) to your state-licensed physician for the exam. This can take the place of the Class 3 medical exam that was required to be done by an Aviation Medical Examiner.

San Carlos Flight Center invites FAA Basic Med Program Manager, Bradley Zeigler to dive into the details of the BasicMed program. BasicMed is an intuitive and great alternative to the traditional medical certification program and in this seminar learn about the regulations, limitations, and scenarios in which BasicMed can serve as a great resource for pilots.

If you use the regular Aviation Medical Exam process, you still may want to view this seminar to see what your alternatives are in the future. If you are planning on using the new BasicMed process, tune in to find out how to get started.


Brad Zeigler has logged more than 20 years in the aviation safety industry and 30 years as a pilot. Celebrating his 15th year at the FAA, he is currently with the Flight Standards General Aviation and Commercial Division, focusing on issues related to airmen certification policy and regulations. In addition to serving as the program manager for BasicMed, he is crafting the next generation of rules pertaining to new aircraft entrants such as powered-lift and drones. Brad holds Airline Transport Pilot, Remote Pilot and Flight Instructor Certificates. He is an active general aviation pilot and bases his Cessna 182 in the Washington DC area.
