Dr. Randolph Rosarion M.D. is designated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as an Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) for the Eastern Region. Currently, he has privileges to perform FAA aeromedical certifications for student pilots, Class 2 & Class 3 pilots. Dr. Rosarion has many years of experience evaluating professionals in all safety sensitive positions and has undergone specialized training in aviation medicine and physiology, and airman certification procedures in accordance with FAA regulations and standards under 14 CFR Part 67.
Not every pilot is the same, or have similar needs, which is why Dr. Rosarion will evaluate each pilot individually to assure that he or she meets the qualifications under 14 CFR Part 67. He and his staff will work diligently with the airman and if necessary the airman’s physician to help expedite cases where certification is more complex and involves special issuance.
Most flying occurs under general aviation, which in short is:
