some renewal dates for medical requirements are good until the end of the month they were issued in and some some are good until the last day of the month.
some renewal dates for medical requirements are good until the end of the month they were issued in and some some are good until the last day of the month. If the FAA can't unify a validity date than it would be helpful to be taught some way to try and remember the exam that expires on the day instead of the last day of the month like the rest of them
