From reading about others experiences dealing with a deferral due to an ADHD diagnosis virtually at any point in life I have some questions… I was diagnosed as a teenager and stopped taking adderall when I was 25. 32 now and honestly believe I was misdiagnosed from a small town doctor that seemed to have every single kid on something. Any way I know that this is not a deal breaker but well aware of what comes with a deferral with psychological evaluation to cog screen etc. Mostly the extra time it takes is my concern as well as cost but in that order. Don’t believe I will have any trouble passing these tests but here’s my question.s
- At what point does ATP require a first class medical if at all?
With that said assuming a 3rd class could get you through?
Would I have the same or any issue obtaining a 3rd class do to ADHD?
To not further delay my training would it be a good or bad idea to get 3rd class first so I can start and go for first after? If I have my 3rd class already would it be put on hold while a 1st class application is being deferred? As I know I cant get issued a 3rd class while 1st class is held up.
Lot’s of questions but certainly appreciate any wisdom on the subject.
