Aviation Medical Examiner Assisted Special Issuance (AASI)

AME Assisted Special Issuance (AASI) is a process that provides Dr. Cannell the ability to re-issue you a medical certificate under the provisions of an Authorization for Special Issuance of a Medical Certificate for a medical condition that is disqualifying under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 67.  The Authorization letter provided to you by the FAA outlines the information that your treating physician(s) must provide for the re-issuance determination.  It is your responsibility to bring the required information as outlined in their Authorization letter to your FAA Medical Certification examination for Dr. Cannell's review and processing.  Below is the list of some of the more common AASI conditions:
