I received the letter from DODMERB two days ago saying that I failed my hearing portion of the physical. I have taken several hearing tests before and have never had a problem. As I have read in other posts here, the person administering my exam left the room with the door open, returning once in awhile and allowing me to hear conversations and passersby in the passageway. I feel that this is why the exam rendered the results it did. I know that I can pass a hearing exam if it is administered properly. My questions are: how exactly do i "apply" for a waiver, and if I do receive one, will it affect my plans of becoming a pilot? Is there any way I could get a hearing exam done on my own and get the results to DODMERB to show them that the test was flawed? I have tried calling the number on the DODMERB website, but nobody answered. Can i email or fax a letter to somebody to help get this done? Thanks in advance.
