“As an 800+ hour GA pilot I am currently trapped in the inefficient web of Oklahoma City.
4 years ago I suffered a “mild” cardiac episode and of course was denied my 3rd class medical upon application for renewal.
I have undergoing voluntary medical procedures, contend my congressman, the FAA Regional medical office, two cardiologist, a hematologist, a kidney expert, a respiratory physician and members of the Congressional General Aviation Caucus as well as AOPA And EAA medical advisors in an effort to resolve my issues.
The FAA OKC office as well as my congressman and members of the GA caucus have all failed to respond to my concerns either in writing or by telephone and to say the least, those failed responses were frustrating and disheartening.
The regional FAA did respond and offer advice, however the advice to contact OKC dell on deaf ears.
It is pure frustration after 35 years of flying to be denied that privilege as a result of an outdated, understaffed, bureaucratic system.
Four medical specialist in addition to two AME’s have determined from a health perspective that I am fit to exercise my airman privileges, however the ostriches within the FAA see it differently.
Frustrating, simply frustrating.”
