    Hello, I'm looking for some advice on whether I should reach out to anyone else within the FAA, and how to go about doing so.

    Medical VA rating for headaches

    Anyone get through medical with a rating for headaches? Either pre-employment or as a controller? I’m assuming the cause is the most important thing they look for? What things did they look for to determine DQ or not?

    BCBS Standard vs. BCBS Basic

    I've been looking into which insurance option I'm going to take for my family, and standard looks like the way I'm heading. I just had a quick question. For standard, there aren't regular co-pays for things (emergency care) and they instead have a percentage of the allowance as payment. Do...

    So I developed exercise induced and allergenic asthma during military service. It has gotten much better and I hardly notice it now. What are my chances in the medical certification or will they not ask for my medical records if I claim I have no problems and can pass the physical? How long/what...
