First waiver denied/my plan/ advice please

Recommended Posts

To summarize:

 

30y/o

Male

GT: 131

SIFT: 46

No prior service

 

Failed hearing test in left ear @3k. Waiver denied by Army Waiver Authority.

 

My plan: send LORs to Waiver Authority and Rucker board in an attempt to get the needed waiver. (I already have an LOR from a Ret. Lieutenant Commander)

 

Is there anything else I can do, aside from waiting 6 months to try again? If I pay for my own civilian flight physical and pass it, would that help?

 

Thanks in advance.

The Army won’t care what a civilian flight physical says. After you failed the hearing test did you retake it at all? Any exposure to loud noises or a slight head cold can affect the results quite a bit when you’re right near the margin.

I retook it once the same day and once 2 weeks later. Basically same results. I will take one in a few weeks to see where I am at, but I want to exhaust whatever measures possible to get the waiver

I had to take a hearing test for my PDHA last month. Another guy did almost failed and the booth operator told him that keeping ear plugs in for as long as you can prior to the test helps.

Maybe?
