FC1 Physical Information
Posted 06 May 2004 - 10:00 AM
I got my FC1 completed back in January of this year. At the time, my recruiter told me everything looked good and I would probably have it approved and receive an OTS class start date by mid-march. It's now the beginning of may and I'm not even sure if the FC1 has left the base I originally took it at to go to Randolph. My recruiter seems a little reluctant to return phone calls and I'm just wondering if there is anything I can do to find out where the physical is right now and how long things are going to take.
Always ready to hurry up and wait, hehe.

Also, would the FC1 count as a civilian flight medical?
Thanks for your help,

Although the FC1 is more difficult than the FAA, the FAA does not take AF physicals nor vice versa. Good luck.

Got a quick question... I am currently active duty enlisted, and am planning on separating the Air Force in a couple of weeks. I had an FC1 done last April. I am planning on Submitting an OTS package in March of 05.. Will I be required to take another FC1 since I will be a civilian? Thanks, Ryan

However, I would resubmit this question to the aviation medical section and have a flight doc answer this for certain...

1) I had some cavities and the dentist at the base qualifed me for FCII. This wont be a problem as long as I go to a private dentist and get the cavities fixed and have the proper documents faxed in, right? Do I need to get the cavities fixed before my packet can get to the Surgeon General? (I was recently laid off and I dont have dental insurance anymore. I should have taken care of this while I had insurance)
2) I searched through all the old posts, but I can't find much info on excessive refraction waivers for navigators. The consensus seems to be that as long as its within -4.50, they will get you the waiver without much grief. Is that correct? I dont know if thats an urben legend or not.
All feedbacks/advices GREATLY appreciated. F16MD and other valuable contributors who give out monumental advices, I'm thanking you ahead. :D

I had to get my cavatites taken care of before they would send my paperwork anywhere since it was a class I physical. I am surprised they did not tell you the same...I'm no expert, thought, but I though cavaties not taken care of were a DQ for a class I. Also, if I remember correctly you should get an automatic waiver no problem with your refractive error. Good luck!

Ask your dentist to be specific in his letter, i.e. which tooth numbers had cavities and were fixed, as well as your SS#.
So yes, as much as it sucks, you'll have to just bite the bullet (somewhat literally) and shell out the scratch to get yourself "healthy" in hopes that the muddy river of your paperwork will soon begin flowing upstream again.

I know nothing about nav eye waivers. Sorry, been with single-seat fighters my whole life.
