Bottom line:

In an uncomplicated ETOH case with good initial recovery, a reasonable expectation is that the pilot could return to line flying in approximately 5 Ė 8 months.


Toss in a month of government shutdown there and the backups caused by it and it still might be May or June, assuming your case is uncomplicated. Itís not quick and itís not cheap.

My "case" started in Jan 2018. FAA received my final submission in Aug. 2018, it is now Feb 2019. this is a test of patience if you ask me, however, i am grateful for the possibility of returning to the flight deck

Any updates on the length of time to receive a special issuance? Mine should be straight forward, but it's only been 3 weeks. For those of you waiting for a while, has there been a light at the end of the tunnel?

I called my region (eastern) today, apparently there is a 3 week delay from their scanning section, so anything sent to them to support your medical has a 3 week delay before it is even attached to your medical to be reviewed.

I think itís all a crap shoot. I know 3 guys who all were HIMS guys who have gotten theirs in 6-8 weeks and theirs were sent in mid February as well. All various cases as well, some easy and one was pretty complicated.
