Facing SE, the magenta circle marks the offfice!



Due to external circumstances I will not be seeing airmen between April 28 and June 27.  I apologize for this disruption.  The sole exception will be already established HIMS airmen.

Difficult Aviation Medical

Certifications (normal ones, too!)

‚ÄčThis is the webpage of  Bruce Chien, Senior AME. I'm a full-time "complex case" AME and have been doing this since 1999, full time since 2010. I've had the honor of serving on AOPA's Board of Aviation Medical Advisors, and in so serving have become intimately familiar with the federal view of Aviation Medical Certification, as well as knowledgeable with our Federal Certification officers  in Oklahoma City. It's been an honor.

Please note that though I am currently near capacity,  I do have a few slots for new complex situations, as I have had some graduates!  And, I can nearly always accomodate the "well pilot" (no complexity).

If we have an established relationship, fear not. I cannot continue to try to help everyone at the door. I clearly have to evaluate the amount of FUTURE time that engagement in your situation will demand, and I clearly DO continue to take on new pilots. But to those I can't budget enough time, to those folks, I'll try to offer good general advice via email, but can do no more.  There will be some selection going on. I do, continue to accept some new cases!
