As a "HIMS Pilot," your Medical Certificate will be annotated with, "Not Valid Past ____________." Anyone who requests to see your Medical Certificate (e.g., a future employer, the FAA, a Check Airman, etc.) will know you are operating on a Special Issuance Medical Certificate. How? If you are under the age of 40, which they will know by your birth date on your Airman Certificate, your Medical Certificate is valid for 12 calendar months; not 6, as is clearly stated on your newly minted, Special Issuance Medical. Bottom line, think twice about participating in HIMS if you are under the age of 40 and/or you anticipate switching employers. Regardless, you should be thinking twice about it anyhow, but if you fall into the above category, it may be in your best interest to avoid HIMS at all costs.
