For anyone still waiting... I just spoke with the Virtual Hiring Team guy assigned to my case. When prompted for a lead time on my medical release, he said they're "actively reviewing about 200 cases right now." I am in Alaska (WP region?). The letterhead from the flight surgeon's office says Office of Aerospace Medicine Great Lakes Region though it is signed "Western Pacific Region." I hope this helps some of you still waiting.

Sounds like a lot of people are getting some sort of update. I completed my CIL requirements late February and have heard nothing since. I hope someone responds to one of the emails or phone calls I have made.

I’ve been reading your posts and it sounds like your plight is similar to mine. Feb/March all of my stuff was submitted. As I posted previously, that one VHT/Flight Surgeon has 200 cases to go through. BTW, I am pool 1, Terminal.

Sorry to hear about your long wait. I know it’s not long when you look at other bids, but it’s a long time for this bid, which seems to be moving quicker then others. It is weird how much I have reached out and have received nothing. Hopefully we hear something soon. Pool 1, Enroute.

I Got my FOL last week have a class date of June 22. I know some that have gotten earlier class dates but from what I've seen once you complete all the paper work from the CIL it takes about a month to a month and a half to hear back.

There is no rime or reason behind it. I also thought the but me and another guy got a FOL a week after we completed our CIL.

First off, Congratulations! Finding a place to live is pretty easy. The FAA has recommended housing listed on their website, but you can rent anything as long as you can provide a monthly receipt. I'm not certain on the average cost of housing because it varies a lot.

Start Here:

Federal Aviation Administration - Housing List
FAA Academy Student Services – Housing FAQs

Also reference the FAQ on this page here: Academy

All these offers with medicals done so recently... Makes me feel like there is a big pile of medicals that are lost in the dark somewhere waiting to be seen...
I would check up on the review something might have gotten flagged. As soon as my MMPI results came in they sent it off to the flight surgeon whose taking their sweet time but at least I know everything should be fine unless they find something no one else did.

As in the AVS email again?? I think I am good for Security clearance, my POC said she would call me in a few days if there was any problems, that was about 2 months ago. Generic medical email said "Everything has been received and in the process of being reviewed for Flight Surgeon Review. " I am going to assume they got the MMPI with it?

Reviewed for flight surgeon review does not mean its with the flight surgeon though. If everything is ok they should send it off right away unless there is something to actually look at or if they are waiting on something.

I stay at Kim's and it works great. She makes things super easy when it comes to filing for per diem you have to jump less paperwork hurdles then others.

Complete everything over two months ago and still haven't heard anything. Emailed medical a couple times and just got the standard "pending flight surgeon review" response.
