  1. Anyone had super quick flight physical turnaround time at Rucker recently? My packet has been prettymuch ready to go since May, but I found out in the last stage of my Class 1 that I needed a refractive surgery on my left eye. I had the surgery and everything is good to go, but my 3-month post op appointment at Carson isn't until September 13 (exactly 3 months later) and the September board date is the 16th. The flight administrator and flight surgeon over there know me now and are super helpful, and I know will send it to Rucker right away (they felt bad for me when I found out at my appointm
  2. Flight Physical Experience Part 1I am a 27 year old civilian currently building my packet to join the California National Guard as a Warrant Officer and yesterday I went through my first phase of the Class 1A Flight Physical at Fort Irwin, CA. I wanted to share my experience for those interested in how this process works as I was one of those people as of a couple days ago. Obviously, YMMV. I called my local WOSM who gave me the phone number to the Community Hospital on base to schedule my physical. I called and scheduled it myself and was told to be there at 0800. On the day of my physical,
  3. Hey guys I've never posted on a blog before but it seems like I could possibly get the answer I seek here. So i passed all parts of my flight physical minus the reach standards "i'm short obviously" I then did an in cockpit evaluation and passed the Apache and Blackhawks with no issue, had an aft cyclic restriction on the Chinook but I'm in a 60 unit so I wouldn't be flying those anyways. Flight surgeon sent up the summary and all that to Fort Rucker and apparently even with the recommendation for waiver from the doc and written memo stating the results of the evaluation it was still denied.
  4. While gathering stuff up and going through my packet for the board, I realized I was missing my UF 3.1. Im an active duty recruiter in the middle of nowhere and did my physical at a coast guard air base. It seems they didn't send it up with my physical. So I have an unstamped, unsigned 3.1 to push up as of right this moment that never made it with my physical. Anyone have any contacts or know of a way to reconcile this situation? I plan on calling the coast guard base tomorrow and at least getting their portion signed. Just trying to get ahead of the game and not spend all day tracking someo
  5. When Submitting my packet do I need the coversheet or do I just need to have my physical that is stamped by Rucker? I've gotten two different answers from researching the Warrant recruiting website and would just like to have this clarified. Thank you.
  6. Hello everyone! I am currently in the Army Reserves and completed my flight physical at Ft. Knox back in May. I was too honest during the physical questionnaire and noted that I had a very minor concussion over a year ago, saw a doctor about it and he was not concerned about it. My physical was stamped not qualified - incomplete as Ft. Rucker would like neurological testing done in accordance with the APL associated with concussions. I paid out of pocket to have an MRI done, neuropsychological consultation, and a neurological consultation which is required per the APL. I submitted all
  7. I'm going to be setting up my flight physical here in a couple of months and am curious if any flight surgeons can do the physical in Florida. I live in South Florida, and my recruiter is saying the closest surgeon is in Georgia/Alabama (not clear which one). If I have to travel that far, I will, but if I can avoid an 8-hour drive, I'd be a lot happier. Thanks!
  8. So, met with my recruiter again Friday. Basically asked him when he wants to set up the flight physical. After I asked him, he said I had to go to a regular MEPS station and get a physical before I went to get my flight physical from a flight surgeon. This didn't sound right to me, so hopefully, someone here has an answer to that. This is his first time having a woft hopeful. Thanks!
  9. The only thing I have left to receive is my flight physical. I had a few things I had to get cleared for and now it's waiting on the flight surgeon at my duty station to do whatever he does before sending it to Rucker. My question is are there any recent applicants that had their flight physical submitted and was told 2-3 month turn around rate? That seems kind of ridiculous. I'm seeing people on here receiving them within 48-72 hours of submission. This is the only thing determining which board I turn my packet in for.
  10. I am looking for advice. Currently I am looking at around 1 year total time of putting my Warrant Officer Packet together. Due to field training, extra appointments to be cleared for my flight status and LOR set-backs. Currently the only thing I am waiting on is my flight physical to be sent to Rucker and returned. Rucker is saying it will take 2-3 months to get the physical back. Is there any possible way I or someone else can do to speed this up. Due to OPSEC reasons, I can't give out information, but I am going to training soon and a deployment. I would really like to get this physical back
  11. 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
  12. Greetings Gents, I am just getting started putting together my WOFT packet and have a few questions for the more well informed. 1. What are the possible locations in Colorado/Wyoming to take a flight physical? 2. I am looking for a WO3-5 to write me a LoR, does anyone know where in Colorado/Wyoming I could find a few aviators to ask to interview me? 3. I am a prior service Sergeant in the Marines. I have excellent LoRs from my platoon commanders from all 3 of my deployments between Iraq and Afghanistan (2 captains and a major), my BC from my 2nd deployment (retired Colonel), an ROT
