FAA issued medicals


Well-Known Member
So this is the third student we have had this happen to (2 different doctors), and trying to figure out a way to speed things up.

A student goes to get his medical. He passes the physical, and the Dr makes an error printing the medical, and then informs the student that with MedXPress, they only get one shot to print it. The Doctor informs the student that he will get the medical in the mail from the FAA down in OKC. This was almost a month ago. The student has been ready to solo for a month.

1. What is taking so long?
2. Is there any one I can call to speed it up?
