Last year I applied for my first medical. I applied for a first class medical, it was deferred due to a DUI about 10 years ago without a BAC test. Submitted all my paperwork and I was issued a Second Class Medical. Other than the past DUI I did have sleep apnea but that was surgically corrected a few years ago. My AME was given all my medical records related to my sleep apnea and said that he was satisfied it was corrected. Moving forward would my AME be able to clear me for a first class medical in the future or would I be deferred again? Another way of stating the question, as I hold a valid second class medical does that allow an AME to issue a first-class medical or will I always be deferred due to the past DUI. Thanks in advance.
