Army Flight Physical Waiver Question

Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gents,

I am an AD 18D E-7 applying for flight warrant. I am currently waiting on my flight physical approval from Ft. Rucker and just wanted to ask about a medical waiver to see if anyone had experience or know of anyone who had a similar issue. On my last deployment, our team was on a night schedule and we obviously came back to being on a day schedule. I had issues sleeping when we got back and went to get a few treatments at our sleep clinic. When it came to my flight physical, my first submission came back returned and Rucker said I needed a sleep study, which I completed and the results indicated I had no issues. Since getting those treatments almost 2 years ago, I haven't had any issues sleeping. I understand that insomnia is a big issue in the medical world when it comes to aviation, so my question is what is the likelihood of my waiver being approved? Also as a followup, what is the wait time on waiver approval? My original physical was returned within a day or two, but the waiver process is taking much longer.

Any help feedback would be appreciated.
