Facing SE, the magenta circle marks the offfice!
Please note I will be out of office November 14, 15 (Federal Meeting), and Nov 27-28-29 for Thanksgiving. Please, emergency email, only during these periods.
This 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 I currently am at capacity. If we have an established relationship, fear not. But 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!
