IF YOU PLAN TO SOLO YOU MUST BRING A CURRENT FAA THIRD CLASS MEDICAL/STUDENT PILOT CERTIFICATE.
It is highly recommended to get a FAA their Class Medical/Student Pilot Certificate if you plan on continuing flight training once you
return home or have already received flight training prior to JFA. If you do not plan to solo then this item is not necessary. An FAA medical certificate may only be obtained by a FAA Aviation Medical Examiner. Make sure you receive the Student Pilot Certificate.

If you do not know where to find the nearest FAA medical examiner, ask your local flight school at the local airport. The FAA FSDO will issue a student pilot certificate at no cost (you will need an appointment a head of time so be sure and call a head).

There is NO opportunity to obtain a medical while at JFA.

Glider Encampment

IF YOU PLAN TO SOLO YOU MUST BRING A STUDENT PILOT CERTIFICATE.
This can be obtained at the FAA FSDO, any designated pilot examiner and some medical examiners. This applies to Advanced Glider.
