I have a friend who got a DWI when he was 20. Yes, bad move for him, I know. He is now 26 and hasn't had any drunk driving violations since. He has had speeding tickets, but nothing he lost his license over. He now wants to be a Private Pilot for recreation, not as the start of a future career. What does he have to do to get a 3rd class medical and student pilot cert? I have only advised him not to attempt getting his Aeromedical done until he is certain he can pass it, but don't know what else to do as his situation never applied to me and I don't know much about it.
