    I thought you had been flying long enough you would have gotten your medical more than three times.

    Congrats on passing

    Congratulations. It's always a relief.

    Two years ago when I got a second class after a long hiatus from flying, I sighed a huge breath of relief as I stuck it in my wallet. Little did I know that in a few weeks I'd get a letter from Oklahoma City regarding my CPAP compliance. A three month battle ensued where I was without said medical for several months.

    This September when I renewed it again the AME gave me a clean bill of health. Even after that, I kept anticipating a letter from FAA finding something wrong. I finally realized in November I was probably not going to get a letter again.

    Sometimes it seems like the FAA doesn't want pilots to mess with.

    I was a bit worried due to being a type 2 diabetic on metformin.

    Oh I misunderstood your post. I'm special. Glad your renewal went well.

    the FAA only cares if you were given adderall when you were 5 years old and then stopped using it after a year.:eek:

    I never said it did.....but at one time the FAA had no issue with someone flying while taking ritalin.

    I wonder what happened for them to treat the disorder the way they do.

    I'n certain, The AME would not have signed me off had he known what the little voices were telling me about him.

    haha true.....I mean it's not like you have a CFI that's going to make sure you can fly the plane and pay attention in the cockpit before they let you solo.
