Flight Physicals

Part One

Part One is done on a walk in basis, Mon- Fri 0700-0730 and Mon-Thurs 1230-1300. All preliminary requirements will be initiated to include vision, audio, labs, dental and all others. Part One requires approximately 2.5 hours to complete. Please see important notes below.

Part Two

After all Part One requirements have been completed, an appointment with the Flight Surgeon/HM will be scheduled at a later date. Most Part Two appointments take place within 2 weeks of initiating Part One and last for approximately 1 hour. Please see important notes below.

Important Notes for All Exams

  • Dental: Must be reviewed/ scheduled separately by calling 953-3918 or 953-3917. It is preferred that your dental be complete prior to arriving at your Part One. However, it must be complete prior to Part Two being scheduled.
  • Glasses/ Contact Lenses: Those individuals that require corrective lenses shall have a current Optometry exam (within the past two years). If you have been issued glasses, all exams require you to bring your corrective lenses (contact lenses are not authorized) for the exam. If an optometry exam is required, you may schedule one by calling the Hampton Roads appointment line at 866-645-4584.
  • Audio/ Hearing: A hearing test is required for nearly all examinees. Therefore, avoid the use of earphones for 12 hours prior to exam.
  • *Labs: Lab requirements vary based on the type of exam being performed. All exams marked with an asterisk require you to fast from food and beverage for 12 hours. You may drink water during the fasting period. Lab values must be returned prior to scheduling Part Two.
  • If you require any additional information or are unsure of the requirements related to an exam, please call Aviation Medicine at 757-953-3779.
