Do you need an Aviation Attorney? Welcome to a special edition of the Stuck Mic AvCast. Recently we have received feedback from many of our listeners concerning a situation where they have received a letter from the FAA concerning their medical exam. We also have had a few folks who have been concerned about recent accidents, incidents, and violations.

Today we have with us Chris Pezalla, an aviation attorney and airline pilot to discuss when you should consider using an aviation attorney and what to do if you receive a letter from the FAA or have been involved in an incident, accident, or possible violation. When it comes to either your medical certificate or your pilot certificate, dealing with an FAA issue can be stressful. There are many organizations and resources available to help you through this trying time.
