First Class Pilots

First Class Pilots who solely hold a National endorsement will receive a medical certificate upon:  1) submission of a 719B seeking renewal or other transaction requiring a medical evaluation; or 2) submission of a form 719K documenting the results of an annual pilot physical under 46 CFR 11.709.

Pilots who held an STCW endorsement prior to January 24, 2014, were issued a medical certificate without application in accordance with Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01-14.
