So I did my last MedXpress application + physical in August 2022. The FAA requested reports from my counselor and my peer support group sponsor, which I plan to submit in a couple of weeks. I'm over 40, and this is a first/initial application for HIMS 3rd Class SI (2 DUI's greater than 15 years old). No SI has been issued previously. Just trying to get an idea for what to prepare for. I'm assuming that by the time they review the requested information, if said information leads to an issuance of a SI, will the medical certificate more than likely be expired already? If so, will I have to start a new MedXpress, or will my previous one still have standing? Will we have to repeat the physical/eye/ear exam? I keep hearing that SI's are time limited, maximum 1 year, but the MedXpress application for those over 40 is good for two years. Again, I'm just trying to get an idea for what to prepare for...what the next steps will be.
