Psychological Evaluation Guide

Below is the Psychological Evaluation Guide. Provide this document to your physician so they may conduct your psychological evaluation in accordance with the FAA’s requirements. You (the pilot) may also use this guide to prepare for your evaluation.



This guide has been updated with the new FAA requirements as of 1/27/2016. The process is still relatively the same. Instead of requiring a complete written evaluation, as previously required, the FAA now requires your mental health professional to fill out and submit the “FAA Gender Dysphoria Mental Health Status Report” in its place. This is essentially the only difference in the process.
