I am 29 years old, I was arrested for a dui when I was 24 but the case was thrown out. I had a current 1st class medical at the time so reported the occurrence to the FAA. The first arrest is not on my record at all. Unfortunately 8 months ago I made an incredibly stupid decision and got arrested again for another dui in which I have been given a deferred sentence meaning it will not go on my record and my lawyer is going to expunge the arrest record. This put me in terrible state of mind Thinking I had ruined my lifelong dream that I ended up continuing to drink and getting a public intoxication charge for walking home from a friends house. Literally wasn’t doing anything but walking and they stopped me. I know it’s not an excuse it was just very unfortunate. I have been sober since. my question is, is there any chance I could still get a first or second class medical again? Will I still be able to fly for a living in any possible way? Whether that means absolute abstinence from alcohol, going to a rehab facility or anything else I need to do, I would do it. Flying has been my lifelong dream and I am so terribly afraid I’ve lost it. It’s the only thing I have ever actually wanted in life. Is my future in aviation ruined?
