As unfair as it sounds, it can get a lot more difficult to get a medical certification with the FAA if you’re a veteran.
Because you’re fighting on two fronts.
Not only do you need to get past the FAA’s regulations, but the VA stands in your way just as much.
The core of the problem is your VA disability compensation.
And transitioning from the military to civilian flying entails going through several bureaucratic procedures at the same time.
The only real solution is to prepare yourself for the journey, so you anticipate the roadblocks that cost some transitioning veterans precious years of their time.
In today’s episode, you’ll discover why the FAA may defer your certification procedure, even if you pass your AME’s examination, and how most attorneys can use the FAA’s regulations to exploit you.
Show highlights include:
- How your VA disability compensation threatens your transition to civilian flying (1:24)
- The surprising reason not getting a reconciliation letter from the FAA may get you a license quicker (6:02)
