HI Guys Despite being rather overweight, i decided to pursue my dream of becoming a FAA pilot earlier this year. Since June i have lost nearly 5 stone after cutting out the pies, running about like the proverbial blue-arsed fly and even foregoing my beloved pints of ale! I had my medical almost a month ago and unfortunately was declared temporarily unfit as my BMI was around 28.8. The doctor recommended i lost another stone and asked how long this would take me. I said i could do it in 4 weeks. 4 weeks later i have lost the weight but still haven't heard anything about my second medical. I just wondered how long it usually takes to hear back. Many Thanks in advance!
