Also, when you say possession charge. Are we talking firearm, drugs, alcohol, what?

Say it was marijuana but you marked you’ve never used marijuana. Etc.
Oh it was Marijuana. And I’ve never smoked it. It wasn’t mine (how cliché) and it wasn’t in my possession at all. Long story short the DA dropped all charges. One of those wrong place, wrong group of friends situation. I had to explain in the reply email that none of the questions on the forms applied to me (while still providing the other paperwork of course).

Gotcha. Still, I would expect to have to provide a personal statement explaining it and all records.

Example, I had a curfew charge that was dismissed. However, two people that were in my car had alcohol. I had to explain in the statement I was asked to give them a ride as they couldn't drive. Had to go to court to go on record stating I didn't know about their charge and that I was only trying to help them out, etc.

It's not a big deal I wouldn't think. They just look at it all.

Has anyone had any luck contacting their state's representative to speed up the Tier 2 process?

I am from the 2017 bid.
Notified of Tier 2 in June 2018 (that's right.....my application has been stuck in T2 for 18 months)

I have had to sit back and watch dozens of people get cleared not only from the 2017 bid, but from the 2018 and 2019 bids as well. I'm over the "be patient emails".....assuming i get a response at all.

Can someone please point me in the right direction on who to contact and what to say?

I can't remember if you've even had your eval. If memory serves me right you eval'd in July 2019 and are still waiting.

To do a congressional inquiry you have to locate who your senate representative is for your voting district. Which you should be able to do without issue on google.

From there they should have a form you can fill out. Basically you explain the what (your situation being tier 2), when (timeline, when you did your eval to where you are now), why (being hired for ATC and needing a medical class 2 which required an evaluation) and then what you would like them to do.

Realistically, all they can do is inquire on your behalf to why it's taking so long. You can request them to ask for your case to be reviewed in a more timely fashion and I would ask them to provide you with an ETA on when yours will be reviewed.

Congress has no power in forcing the FAA to get this done any faster. I started my congressional inquiry fall of 2018 I believe. They've helped get ETAs and "why" for what is taking so long. But they can't change the timeline.

I did my eval November of 2019. FAA confirmed receipt of eval January 2020, about a week and a half ago. Last week they emailed congress saying my eval would be completed in 12-18 weeks. Though there isn't anything holding them to that as it's their process to do.

If you're military/prior service the "hurry up and wait" should be your mentality. Unfortunately, we're both stuck here from the 2017 bid.

Personally, I quit putting off my life and accepted another civilian job. Focusing on paying things off, saving money should I get approved for the FAA, etc.

My plan is still to work ATC obviously. Though waiting around for years like we have, they could still deny us. I just wouldn't make any big moves across country or anything.

Thanks a lot for the response!

I have not had my eval done yet lol. I have been >1.5 years out from being told i'm Tier 2 with still no psych appointment in sight. I can't even get a rough estimate out of my POC of when it would be. I have also sent in my driving record 3 ******* times.....which is by far the least of my worries lol. I'm just fed up with this process.

literally we are in the identical boat. Tier 2 from 2017, have not been contacted by hope, and have also sent my driving record to them numerous times. Quite comical if you ask me. It’s so discouraging seeing people from a bid 2 years after us already moving forward in the process and we are just stuck in no mans land over here.

Every time I email RDC I get the generic “you file is with hq waiting tier 2 coordination. We don’t not receive updates on their processes.” 🙄

Sent you a PM..
Can you pm me too lol
