You’re largely misdirecting your anger. It’s the Faa’s rules you’re really mad at.
You could not be more wrong. About the excellent, dedicated, expert AMEs here.
And his own mistakes or errors in judgment.
Yes, we’ve all made them. Some of us were just lucky and escaped unscathed. Those of us who were not so lucky and had to pay the piper just need to know how to move forward without being angry at the whole damn world.
I'm not angry, I'm worried that I wont be able to pursue my dream which is really going to suck if that's the case but I'm not angry at anyone.
The FAA has every right to try and protect citizens from a Loon and I respect that. I do however wish they looked more throughly into someone's back ground to make a decision.
5 years Class A license, years of safe driving no accidenrs or speeding tickets, no dui's ETC. I don't even do drugs, I'm a 3.6 gpa student. I have children of my own. The worst problem with all of this is my records expunged, I call the clerk can't get any paperwork it has been destroyed. I contact TBI they claim no record either, so what am I supposed to do when they want court documents to prove drugs/etc weren't involved? I might need the Attorney honestly.
So in your mind, is being deferred synonymous with being found medically qualified? The latter is what the regulation I quoted literally requires if you have applied for a medical.
Don't get me wrong, I wish you were right. I just can't find a way to make the regulations say what you are claiming.
I tried to keep my nose out, but reached a point where I cannot. I've been on this board for years, and based on the content contributed over a rather good amount of time, by most everyone involved in this chat, I have no idea where you came up with:
Half of you aren't pilots.
21% loans. (??)
@SoCal 182 Driver being a rusty pilot.
It seems you walked into this party, with a head full of preconceived notions, and you're a little more than irritated at the news you've received. You're now thrashing and lashing at those that are correcting your thoughts. I'm sorry for the news you've gotten. Yeah, it kinda sucks. You might have done a little more research before hitting up the AME to get your medical deferred. But you didn't and this is on you.
The system's not perfect, but it exists to keep people out of planes that shouldn't be flying, and it's probably not getting any massive change to it any time soon.
By the way - don't snub sailplanes. They're hella-fun and take lots of skill, arguably more (or different) skills than someone driving a C182 around the skies.
Well.. considering that it is the internet, that's a pretty good ratio
I wouldn't advise lying on a medical, but just curious, if all records have been destroyed and you can't for the life of you prove it, how can the FAA...especially when they know nothing about it?
Which leads to the advice given many times on this forum: careful what you make public.
Good luck man, I hope the best for you.
In my mind being deferred means just that, the literal definition.
Postponement which means for something expected to take place at a later time, Pause, Wait.
I'll wait to solo a 152, and fly a cub while I wait.
Does that sound like a rejection in your mind?
Blue isn't black, blue is only blue.
I’m sorry you feel this way, but as you know, the internet is going to internet no matter what.
Well, if we’re being honest, I don’t feel as though your disposition has been the most positive either. I get that you’re frustrated, but the condescending, sarcastic attitude doesn’t help.
61.303(b)(2) does not say anything about deferrals. What it DOES say is that if you have applied for a medical, you have to have been found qualified in order to operate a light-sport aircraft. When you've been deferred, there hasn't been any finding yet. Therefore it's not yet possible to say that he has been either denied, or that he has been found qualified.
I hope to be the record holder, the first one to actually stay and update this thread over time. That way when some young kid 10 years from now is going through the same stuff and hops on Google, he can see this and realize it's just the start hahaha.
Can you quote what you are referring too? This is what I see.
Hey super admin guy, don't delete me. I'll become a suporter, keep this up for the future kids going through the same ringer.
Oops I was overlooking it. I see it now, and I have to agree
The reg I quoted does not use the word "rejection." It says that you have to have been found qualified.
By the way, I recognize that you have been given the shaft, and really wish the regs were different, but they are what they are.
Lol Alvin, you need a chill pill man, lighten up.
Can you quote the whole thing for me? Thanks in advance haha.
I'll accept being wrong 100%
If you want to fly/learn, you can always do that with an instructor while you wait to find out. You'll have to spend the money anyway, and it all counts toward your ticket if you do get the medical. If not, you had a hell of a good time I'd bet.
I already did, but here it is again:
"(2) Have been found eligible for the issuance of at least a third-class airman medical certificate at the time of his or her most recent application (if the person has applied for a medical certificate);"
If a chill-pill is taken, does it have to be reported on the next application?
Do.. do you guys also hate the FAA? LOL
I 100% accept that. Ah right in my dreams.
So to be clear, you can only fly LSA if you A. Haven't applied for a medical or B. Applied and were immediately found eligible at minimum a Class 3
Deferral means not eligible.
Deferral is fine as long as the questions / additional tests / whatever are followed through with and results in an issuance (eventually). Deferral doesn’t mean denial, but deferral automatically turns into denial in 90 days or something if you’re not moving towards issuance.
So for Basic Med, you have to have applied for a medical, and your most recent application had to result in issuance, and not subsequently been revoked or surrendered. (Along with a few other rules like “no seizures since then,” and taking an online course, and getting a normal doc to sign off.)
For Light Sport, you don’t have to have applied, but if you have, your most recent application had to result (eventually) in issuance, and not been revoked or surrendered. (And a few other rules, like having a driver’s license.)
And in any case, you need to reasonably believe yourself fit to fly before you take off.
SP passes the medical decision buck to the state DMV. If flying as SP with a denied medical was allowed and somebody crashed due to the medical issue that caused the denial, what a stink that would be.
Perhaps you should re-think this, and apologize. The docs that frequent this board give freely of their time and advice and never seek to get new clients. Your hubris and sense of entitlement are, frankly, shocking, as is your slamming the docs who try to help others in this forum.
Based on your comments, perhaps this is a good idea. Given your arrogance and sense of entitlement, I'm not certain you're capable of complying with the highly restrictive system in which we all fly.
We give what we get. Most everyone in this particular forum is honest and supportive, except when arrogant a**holes, who think their 15 minutes of internet research trumps the skill and knowledge of the docs and others here, spout their bullsh*t, at which time that person becomes the object of scorn and rejection. It seems that's where you're headed, if you're not already there, as your participation here adds nothing to a forum that has helped hundreds, if not thousands, of people over the years.
Definition of Internet Troll (from the Urban Dictionary): Someone who takes pleasure in causing drama by arguing with people without wanting or accepting anyone's response, also known as a "Justin."
If the shoe fits, wear it, Justin, er. Alvin.
You woke up still on this? How about you delete this and just carry on to seeing how everything turns out.
I've never heard of that terminology used for a troll before Karen.
Being a troll in modern age would be my self describing false events that I know didn't happen just to get a rise from everyone else, which I then would take joy in and share.
Example: I actually run a pilot forum that's bigger and more well known than this one, I'm also actually a fully rated pilot and I fly for United. I have been fully documenting the Arrogance and behavior of every member, and it has became a huge joke to all my members 182 drive.
I started reading this thread and hoping that the OP is able to work through the FAA red tape and roadblocks, but after getting to page 3 my opinion has made a 180.
It's pretty clear that he has an attitude problem--arrogance and entitlement were mentioned earlier and I agree. I also have no doubt that there was a lot of "spin" in the arrest story so we're not getting the full picture. Not surprising.
Further, since Alvin already knows more than everybody else, I'm kind of puzzled why he would seek any advice at all. Let alone on this site, which he seems to look down upon as a group of people who just went out and bought ratings and passed tests designed for kids.
I wish the OP the best, but I hope that I never share the same slice of sky with him should he be successful in buying, er, I mean obtaining a certificate.
Wait, whaaaat?? Super Admin? @RyanB did you get promoted?? Congrats man!
FAA - ** always watching **
Me - "No way! I LOVE the FAA... One of the finest run agencies in the entire Federal Government! They are never wrong and everything they do is completely logical and makes perfect sense! And regulations - super easy to understand! They never ever ever contradict. I love the FAA!"
Nah. Chill-pills are on the approved list.
My ban hammer got upgraded from bronze to gold!
If you have applied for a medical you can’t sport pilot unless a medical is issued. If it’s anything other than issued you can’t sport pilot. The regs clearly state that fact. No matter how low your opinion is of this group it does not change the regulations.
