My letter for re-issuance of my SI stated to have all information submitted 60 days before expiration to avoid a lapse in the medical certificate. I submitted the requested medical reports on March 16, 2022, 75 days ahead of time, and 125 days later, I am grounded. The only response I can get is, “it is in review.”
I have been tied up with this broken system for the past six years, and it has only become more cumbersome. Perhaps this is a good issue for AOPA to tackle. How about holding the medical review office accountable for performance?
Yes I have asked. They say because it is high performance, pressurized, capable of flying above 180 they will not.
