A recruiter needs to be with you. You can try to find an opening out of state and a local recruiter willing to get you on base/checked into medical. I did this and drove 3 states away for mine, but since they knew this I was able to do part 1 and 2 of the flight phys in the same day.
Im a civilian and Id be willing to travel. Does my recruiter have to be with me??
Well I did have my recruiter make my appointment, but when I went in, I went in on my own.
For me when I went to Rucker I got a guest pass and I was able to get in and off base just fine. Definitely do as Seminole did and try to get both part 1 and 2 at the same time. If you don't get that, make sure you get your part scheduled BEFORE you leave after your part one!!! And then once your part two is completed get a copy of your stamped physical. Then take that to your recruiter back home.
It's a long process... I don't know how long you all worked on it but mine took over 18 months. 3 of those were spent at Rucker in part getting this physical. Best of luck to you!
One last thing make sure your recruiter knows you mean business! I had to go through 3 because they weren't as committed to my flight packet as I was. I imagine that some recruiters will just tell you to wait until they can get it scheduled locally, because they don't want to go through the hassle of scheduling your flight physical at Rucker. Don't let them make you wait. If your recruiter isn't willing to make a phone call when you're willing to travel to a different state to get something done you're not on the same page.
