In 2010 I had a seizure (as of this writing that would be 8 years ago.)
I was a CFI/Commercial Multi pilot, and the FAA took away my medical. I have never piloted since, though I've missed it tremendously.
At the time I was told that I could not obtain a medical again unless it was after 6 years being seizure free with 2 off medication. I have been off medication for 1 year and have had no problems.
I recently got a battery of tests (EKG, MRI, CAT Scan/CT Scan) etc and found no seizure activity.
Have the rules changed in nearly a decade for this? Should I see an AME or would it be a waste of time? I know there is a pilot shortage now, so I'm wondering if it has gotten more lenient.
