Stan Musick, MD is a life long aviation enthusiast who has pursued simultaneous careers in both medicine and aviation. He received his MD degree from Baylor College of Medicine, and is board certified in Anesthesiology, Pediatric Anesthesiology, and was trained by the US Air Force as a Flight Surgeon. He has been an Aviation Medical Examiner for more than 20 years, and is a Senior AME.
Dr. Musick has also pursued his aviation career, receiving his CFII and commercial ratings in the 1970s, and has added the ATP, A&P/IA ratings to his “ticket”. Active in the warbirds, he flies the P-51 Mustang and the Corsair for the Commemorative Air Force, and owns a T6 in which he performs at airshows. With more than 10,000 hours he remains active in flying; and more importantly, understands the significance of a “trouble-free” medical.
One of his talents is working through the “maze” of Special Issuance, and helping airmen obtain flying status when they were convinced they would never be PIC again.
