Description

Glasses a necessity for von Braun to exercise “the privileges of his airman certificate”

DS, one page, 3.5 x 5.25, June 17, 1973. A Federal Aviation Administration ‘Medical Certificate I Class’ filled out in type with von Braun’s personal information and a note from his doctor: “Holder shall possess correcting glasses for near vision while exercising the privileges of his airman certificate.” Signed at the conclusion in ballpoint by the doctor and by von Braun. In fine condition, with central horizontal creases. As he neared the end of his life, it was necessary for von Braun to wear corrective lenses in order to fly his plane as a private citizen. An interesting personal document closely associated with von Braun’s passion for flight. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
