Hi, wondering if anyone on here would have more information than what is available on Reddit. Anyway, I have spent the last year or so attempting to obtain my first-ever medical certificate (2nd class, albeit at this point it's basically worth the value of a 3rd). I know the application was sent to Washington, DC as I've spoken to OKC multiple times over the past few weeks. However, it was not a drug or alcohol or crime issue so quite frankly I'm not sure if it is within the realm of the HIMS program. It was related to the following that I reported because I am not going to lie on a federal form! A: Being transgender and dealing with hormones and surgeries for that condition for over a decade (ie: Gender Dysphoria...I'm transitioned and living mostly under the radar now though, so not much of a big deal any more). B: Psychiatric hospitalization as a minor over 10 years ago against my will, related to being trans and coming out later than I would've wanted to after realizing transgender identity was a real thing and more than a fairy tale in my adolescent years. To be clear, I have never actually taken meds for psychiatric reasons in my life, so no decision path there. Otherwise, I'm not sure if I legally had to report this, but I did and am now dealing with it. C: A childhood diagnosis of High-Functioning Autism. I am under the radar with this too. Symptoms are minimal and if anything Autistic traits are just helpful for my current technical job as an engineer. D: Unremarkable PRK eye surgery to correct myopia last year. FAA needed the following after my medical exam. All was submitted, and OKC has noted it was all scanned in as of July 10th of this year. 1. Psychiatric Evaluation from one of their specialists due to items A, B, C. It was from their own list. I do not know if the specialist was a HIMS specialist. None of the documentation I received said HIMS. 2. Due to the Autism, a complete neuropsych workup/evaluation, ie: the Cogscreen and all the other mumbo jumbo. My neuropsychologist additionally required evaluations from flight instructors to submit with his report for supporting references. 3. Name change documentation. 4. The dreaded FAA Gender Dysphoria Mental Health Status Report Form (Yep, it's an an actual thing. I don't have a current psychologist, so their specialist from item 1 filled this out). 5. Records from the inpatient event. 6. Eye surgery form (8500-7). Last I called OKC (last week) they told me to call DC. The number they gave me for DC though was a central switchboard, and when I asked for the FAA medical department there, they gave me the AOPA number for Pilot Protective Services. Kinda useless. I want to reach the FAS's office over there to check status directly, not a private lobbying/pilot organization/non-profit that may or may not be able to do it on my behalf for money (not that I am not a fan of AOPA). So two questions really: A: On the basis of the above, how long? It's been 38 business days since it was "scanned in" now. or roughly 8 weeks. I have like 30 flight hours (I had to get the hours before getting the medical as the neuropsychologist held my report until I got favorable reports from my flight instructors about my ability/comportment in the cockpit to support his report, which by definition requires flying) and I want to solo already. B: What's the DC contact number for medicals? I know OKC is available at 405-954-4821 and I know the tricks to getting through their IVR, but what is the DC contact number? Thanks.
