it doesn't look like anyone has received confirmation back yet about the ATL PEPC. I got the email on 7/1 and replied almost immediately. I think we will see confirmations next week.

Now I've got a question hoping someone can answer. If we go Traditional do we have to pay to goo to the flight surgeon or anything else?? I know when I get my flight medical it costs about a $100 a pop. I'm making the assumption that everything is provided at no cost at the PEPC being that it is a hiring event, but if you have to go to non-FAA professionals for the Traditional routers, does the applicant (you and I) incur any costs?

I'm guessing the holiday weekend threw a wrench on anything further this week. Seems everyone was out of the office.

As far as I know the FAA covers all medical cost even for those who go the traditional route. If you go the traditional route, the FAA will direct you to the nearest Dr. they'll accept for your flight medical. However if for example you had a poor result on your EKG, you'd be expected to visit a cardiologist to have him check you out. Any additional visits like that are your expense.

Yeah, it's free. Once you setup your appointment with the doctor they assigned you the FAA tells you to call them back to give them the exact date and time of your appointment. They do this so they can send the doctor a waiver on the day of your appointment saying they are paying for everything.

I interviewed yesterday at ZSE and the gentleman told me if I can get into a PEPC do it for sure. He said that way your all set and you're paper work doesn't have the chance getting lost on someone's desk.
So was ZSE your first choice? Why were you forced to the traditional route?

I am in Seattle but was selected for Oakland Center... My number two preference. I completed the Chicago PEPC with a TOL.

Any one look into a Hotel yet? I've got a couple that I've been looking at. I'll be booking a flight tonight but I want to hold off for a couple of more days on the hotel to see if Boomer can't get us a deal somewhere.
