FAA BasicMed Physicals are another way for pilots to fly without holding an official FAA Medical Certificate, reliant on them meeting certain requirements.
The Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 14 (14 CFR), Section 61.113(i); BasicMed Rule, allows pilots to use this checklist, and other requirements, in lieu of holding third-class FAA Airman Medical Certificate. According to this rule, "Under BasicMed, an individual may only act as pilot-in-command (PIC) of an aircraft that is authorized to carry not more than 6 occupants, and that has a maximum certificated takeoff weight of not more than 6,000 pounds."
