I started the private pilot license program with enthusiasm. Ground school was a chore but completed it. Looking back, it would have been better if I took this online because my teacher sucked and wouldn't provide us powerpoint copies and told us nothing about what to do after we completed the class. I digress on this. After looking up that I need to get a 3rd class medical I scheduled an appointment. The AME did not tell me I had to complete a FAA medical xpress before I came, so I completed it at his office. I have high blood pressure and my application was defreered to OKC because I didn't provide him with a letter from my doctor stating that it was under control before I had my exam. I was not offered the opportunity to provide this and he said I'll hear back from the FAA in 8-12 weeks and they will request this information. Then he said they will respond back to me in another 8-12 weeks. I'm not even 30 and am in good health. This is BS. Should I have been offered the opportunity to provide this information before he submitted? Is there any way to speed up the FAA reviewing my information. Basically I'm fed up with this whole process. The process is so convoluted and every trainer/teacher/AME I've encountered is arrogant. I'm not even sure I want to continue because it's like walking on eggshells asking any questions. Most private pilots I've met are very nice and helpful, it's just those people who are supposed to be providing education suck. Newsflash, you were a student pilot once. I hope they lose their businesses because they're such aholes. Someone please tell me it gets better.
