These are conditions that are not deemed to be disqualifying, so they do not require a Special Issuance Authorization. They are relatively common and mild enough that they may be issued by the AME as long as the current medical status report from the treating physician documents stability according to the FAA specifications.
Some require “pre-approval” under an initial Special Issuance, others do not. The important thing is that the AME can issue the certificate as long as the medical reports are complete and fulfill the FAA’s requirements. Some previous Special Issuance conditions are now in this category (see below) making things much easier. Furthermore, these CACI conditions do not carry any shortened expiration dates. Here is the list of the 9 currently approved CACI conditions. For convenience, we have translated the FAA specifications for these conditions into easily understandable instruction sheets that the treating physicians can use to write the necessary reports.
- Hepatitis C
- Renal Cancer
