Meet Dr. Weatherby
Dr. Cole Weatherby joined the Austin Aerospace medical team in 2020. He is now a Senior HIMS AME capable of helping you with any aviation-related medical need you might have. He is an instrument rated private pilot who is passionate about aviation and aviation safety. He is also a board-certified psychiatrist and has a private practice in Austin that specializes in aerospace psychiatry and holistic/integrative mental health care.
Working with the FAA on certification issues can be a stressful, nerve wracking, and expensive process. Dr. Weatherby understands this from his own experiences as a pilot and as a physician. He is dedicated to making this process as painless as possible for you and providing you with reliable expertise and support.
Dr. Weatherby has developed experience and a keen interest in assisting pilots with a history of complex physical health and mental health issues with the certification process. He is available for HIMS and non-HIMS AME consultation at Austin Aerospace and provides highly detailed aerospace psychiatric evaluations in his private practice.
