Okay, it's 2017 so I guess with the PBOR2 it's time to simplify the process. But I can't quite unsimplify it... So, I have a SI for Sleep Apnea have the CPAP and the works and have had no issues with compliance once I get the SI issued. But because of the SI my dates for medical compliance are whacky: SI: Good thru 2020 3rd Class: Good thru 2021 Certificate: Good thru Feb 2017 This is what I don't get. My medical and my SI are good for a number of years, but on my medical it says that it's valid for only a year. I went to my AME last year and he said I didn't need a physical even tho it says my Med Certificate expiry date was up. So here's my question: With the new reforms, I don't need to see an AME, all I need is my treating physician to look at my compliance reports, ask some perfunctory questions about daytime sleepiness, etc., and then I just send that into white coats in OKC? I know my normal physical has balked at signing anything related to my aviation stuff saying he's not qualified as a AME. I get it, it's total CYA but that may be an issue when I go in for my next exam.
