My brother, Robert, received a DUI almost 2 years ago. He is a pilot and the FAA says they messed up and pulled his medical when all they really wanted was a psychological evaluation. However, they weren’t willing to go back on the letter they originally sent. So he’s had to jump through hoops since then. He has spent thousands of dollars trying to get his medical back and following all their guidelines. He hasn’t had a drop to drink since the night he got he DUI. He received word from his acting doctor that the preliminary report states he shouldn’t get his medical back (no official word from the FAA yet). The doc says it’s likely he won’t get it back at all without spending an additional $40,000 and more time and there’s still only a 50/50 chance. Praying for a miracle!!!
