Default My OKC Aeromedical wait.

Here is my recent (early 2021) wait time for the FAA to process my 1st class medical.

Day 1: FAA medical (AME said it would take 2 weeks to two months to get medical)

Day 7: AME faxed in documents and cover letter OKC. He is very meticulous - he wants to make sure it’s right the first time - which is fine by me.

Day 14: OKC said documents were scanned into system
(Called every two weeks. (Call in the morning, the wait times seem shorter) Each time they said “scanned into system will be reviewed in order in which they were received.” I don’t think they can say anything else and each time they were very polite. I checked the registry every day. https://amsrvs.registry.faa.gov/airmeninquiry/Main.aspx

Day 55: Medical showed up on Registry, called OKC and they emailed medical to me. They can fax it but said the email comes through better. They also mail it. From OKC mail takes about 5 days.

In my case I already had an SI for the condition. I had another procedure done which required OKC review. My AME said if you fax in documents to OKC it takes seven days to scan in, if you mail them it takes OKC 30 days to scan them in. (YMMV)

If I had to do it over again, once they said it has been scanned in I would not have called for about a month. Checking the registry is just as good. If it had gotten to two months after being scanned in, I would have been a bit more insistent trying to find out where exactly they were in the process.

Good luck to those of you who are waiting.

Just curious, if it’s deferred or something will it say that or just whatever class?

I’m not sure I follow your question.

If OKC doesn’t like what you sent in, they’ll send a letter asking for further tests, etc. In which case you don’t get a medical.

You mentioned checking the status.

On the link you posted, when you put in your info, it lists your medical. In my case it says “First,” I was curious if yours said “deferred”or something else.
