After 5 months, I finally have my third class medical Absolutely stoked to start flight training. Here's my journey: December 2020 - Fill out MedXPress, I already knew I'd get deferred. Visited AME, got Deferred. January - FAA request for medical records. Gather CPAP compliance reports, letter from doc, ADHD personal statement. February - waiting, started Sporty's ground school. March - Request for ADHD neuropsychological evaluation. Did evaluation at end of month. April - Still waiting for FAA to send medical records to HIMS neuropsychologist for review, passed PPL written test at this time. Fedex'ed completed report Apr 22. May 1 - Called FAA for status update, told me I received SI for both sleep apnea and ADHD, emailed me the letter! What I learned: Sending records via Fedex/UPS is pretty quick, since it goes directly to FAA office instead of mail room. Evidenced by fast turnaround, for my neuropsych report, delivery confirmed on Apr 27 and medical issued May 1. Calling three times on nonconsecutive days DOES NOT prioritize your file (contrary to urban legend). I confirmed this with the lady at the FAA medical certification office. For status updates, DON'T call OKC office, they take super long. Instead, call your regional flight surgeon office (https://www.faa.gov/other_visit/avi...gations/designee_types/ame/amcs/phonenumbers/). I called the Western Pacific branch and was able to get a status update within 5 minutes every time. The lady said all the branches have access to the same info. When you call for status update, you can also request them EMAIL you the letter that they sent you. This helped me get a head start on scheduling my evaluation / making appointments with my doctor.
