Is anyone taking their Class 1A flight physical anytime soon? If so, will you ask the doctor if they accept retained orthopedic hardware in the foot?

 

I heard from what I believe is a credible source that they will not accept anyone with retained hardware. From where I am in the process, it will be a few months before I can get a flight physical. I am considering just going ahead and having my hardware removed. From a time perspective, it makes sense to me to go ahead and have it removed now, rather than wait a few months to be told I have to have it removed. There is a 6 month waiting period to join after any surgery, so I am just trying to cut my wait time down.

 

Anyone have experience with this or advice?

I did my first class last month.  

 

You can call your AME to ask.  You can also call AOPA's hotline, if you're a member and participate in their program.

You'll probably get more responses if you re-post this on the military forum?

The comments above actually pertained to the FAA first class, vs. the military, but the scope and requirements are comparable.  Check with a flight surgeon outside of the facility or location you anticipate using.

 

Also try the aptap website for some useful insight.  http://www.aptap.org

Looks like avbug forgot to read the question. Again. Yes, if you have a question about the army, I would ask the army.

I think the doctor kicked him out after listening to 20 minutes of how overqualified he is. How can you know "what every switch does" on the old four-seven if you get lost in the first sentence of a question? lol
