Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I had my medical 2 weeks ago and i know i failed as i forgot to take my glasses (stupid i know) and the doctor said i was PMU but i can appeal. I haven't received any letters though confirming this and saying how to appeal. i was wondering how long should i wait before i get my letters and also how do i appeal?

    Call you AFCO and ask about appealing. Appeal basically involves writing a letter with supporting evidence such as your corrected vision score from an opthamologist.

    It's odd that you weren't TMU'd if it were just not bringing a pair of glasses and everything else went ok.

    Definitely appeal!

    Got my appeal and the date of my next medical. When I spoke to the AFCO they were amazed I was PMU
