The package that my HIMS medical examiner sponsor put together was sent fedex and received on 5/27 and now i'm waiting for a response. From what I understand, this process takes 4 to 6 weeks. Hope I have enough fuel for this holding pattern!  :o  ;)

Thanks G, how ya been man? been a while!

 A long while.....we all kind of left for a long time.....

I got married, moved to Utah, still doing fires but also run another company now doing flights to Catalina and back...... just bought a sailboat.....and trying to retire and live on a boat in 5 years.....

Life is good..... sailing, flying, as yours will be again soon...

Have discovered that sailing as many similarities to flying..... And also the three "F" rule... if it Flies, Floats or F#cks, one is better off renting.....

sweet man, that's very cool! I forgot about the three "F" rule (errr ignored it) and I got married myself almost a year and a half ago and moved inland from the clear lake area (near the Johnson Space Center) and for the moment am just west/southwest of houston but the wife and I are looking for a house now back down in clear lake. keep at it though and your retirement will happen!

Today I did my 1st class medical exam ($1500) and all went well now what's left is for the AME's assistant to gather all data (cognitive test from 2 months ago & psychiatrist from 2 weeks ago) and today's visit  which it was a 1st class normal exam with the exception of going into detail about my alcoholism. At any rate, all data is being collected and reports are being written and the whole enchilada is being sent off to the faa's head of psychiatry in Washington DC for approval. The package should be sent (it's one helluva thick file now) to them in about 2 weeks and I should have an answer in the next 10 to 12 weeks. fingers crossed!  now back to saving for the Falcon 10 & Cessna CE-500 sign offs for F.O. and hope for the best!

psych exam was today and lasted a couple of hours and was about what one would expect for such an examination given the circumstances. childhood to present and where alcohol played into it all before, during, and after i quit drinking. In short, exam went well and the next item up for bid is my blood work next week then the following Monday my 1st class exam

update:
Have the psychiatrist appointment scheduled for mid April and then my 1st class exam scheduled for the beginning of May. When I went the other day for the initial visit with my AME I had mentioned that I was currently taking Benadryl once a day for allergies to which he suggested that I quit taking that and go with Claritin because of the side effects due to the fact that I'm in the HIMS program and this would be frowned upon as Benadryl isn't an FAA approved medication and even though I don't have my medical back just yet and am not flying, it's best to not even go there and avoid any meds that may be of concern. I have also come down with a cough/cold as well and have to avoid any cough medications that may contain alcohol, this one is pretty much a no brainer but figured I might as well put it out there if anyone was wondering.

The 8th part of my research consists of exploring prices on different routes, such as JFK-SFO, JFK-LAX, JFK-SEA, SEA-MIA, LAX-ANC. I tried to compare all information which I found out to calculate the real prices.

HA! Glad to hear!

We thought about that as well. But we figured it would be that much more funny for people who DO get the reference and love the movie ;)
