Sr. Aviation Medical Examiner
The FAA has new criteria to allow the AME to issue a medical certificate when the airman has arthritis without going through the Special Issuance process. Applicants for first- or second- class must provide this information annually; applicants for third-class must provide the information with each required exam. Without this documentation, the AME cannot issue the medical certificate and must defer the certification decision to the FAA.

Status report from treating physician that includes a statement the treating physician finds the condition stable on current regimen for at least 2 weeks and no changes recommended, there are no side effects from the medications and the patient is symptom free.
