Anyone know if you can get your MEI without retaking the MilComp Instructor written? I did the written about a year ago and only got a CFII based on my instructor form 8 was in a centerline thrust restricted aircraft. Gonna swing by the FSDO this week, but wanted to see if anyone else had any gouge.

You only have to take the test once. After that, just take form8 to fsdo.

Is there a link to this on the faa website? Just curious since I couldn't find it and I'm planning to get my mil competency multi commercial instrument soon.

Go to to reapply for your same certs - for me, straight Airplane MEL. I am getting my centerline thrust restriction removed next week at the FSDO. Here's the generic instructions I received:

Please arrive at least 10 minutes early and bring the following with you to your appointment:

1) Valid photo identification, such as a U.S. driver’s license, passport, and/or military ID
2) Military competency test results (later confirmed no retake is necessary, nor having results from long ago)
3) Official Armed Forces record, (e.g., NATOPS jacket for U.S. Navy/Marine Corps service-members)
4) Current airman and medical certification
5) Log Book(s)
6) IACRA information: Username, Password, and FTN
7) Print-out copy of new IACRA application

Hope this helps.
