    How long does it take for the FAA to send your medical record once it is requested. I got the request received letter about a month ago but not records yet..

    I saw on the licensing side of the house it listed 6-8 weeks. Wondered if medical was the same.

    Can I call OKC and ask?

    For me, last year, about 5 weeks after the acknowledgement letter.

    It took me close to 13 weeks to get mine. I had just written to inquire as to what was happening when it arrived in the mail.

    I got mine about a month ago. Took less than 2 weeks. I was quite surprised.

    They are trying but the level of congressional funding is absurdly low. I have complained publically that the records are made of unobtainium. It makes the process of evaluating drug and alcohol file, cardiology files....sort of a mockery. I advise the airmen to accept the denial, do not appeal (and get a higher level denial), and when the necessary information appears so that we can evaluate what needs done, we reapply again.

    I’ve been waiting 4 months, should I write a followup letter? Any way to speed up the process?

    To out of the ordinary, especially if you requested the blue ribbon certified copy

    You can, but due to way things operate in OKC, it might take weeks before anyone with the proper authority sees it, and then it might not result in any action.

    Not that I am aware of. Record requests are pretty low on the priority totem pole
