Questions about the flight physical stamp process at Ft Rucker. I'm a civilian putting a packet together out of Las Vegas. Background: I completed part II of the flight physical back in November. Called Ft Rucker to check the status of the stamp earlier this December, they said my packet was disqualified. Got in touch with the flight surgeon who did my part II out at Ft Irwin and he said they have to do an aeromedical survey to review my med packet and move forward. He also said I was disqualified because of a retinal hemorrhage that was reported in my follow up appointments from a 2013 PRK surgery. He couldn't give me a timeline on the aeromedical survey but he said I've done everything on my end and Im not out. When I was doing parts I and II they also said my eyes were fine, no issues and I'm 20/15 in both and I got a waiver coming out of MEPs for the same reason. My recruiter said it was just another waiver process and they have to talk to their "waiver guy", I believe it but I haven't really relied on them for anything during this process. Has anyone ever been hung up or know someone hung up getting the stamp from Rucker? How long did it take from completion of part II? Anybody know someone flying with the retinal hemorrhage in their history? Greatly appreciate the value that this forum has brought to me during this whole process and thanks to everyone who have helped in the past. Have a happy new year and good luck to everyone in the upcoming boards.
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 appointment that I had 20/20 but needed a surgery still). But I'm wondering if there's even any chance of getting it stamped and uploaded for the 16th board date. (Civilian - so I don't have to follow the same initial dates, though I'm not sure if submitting it day of the deadline is a good look either...)
