    Default NMC wait time????

    I just sent in all my documentation for my AB to the Boston REC. It should have been delivered today, maybe tomorrow at the latest. Any idea on the latest time frame to get my AB back from the NMC?

    What makes you think it should be delivered today or tomorrow?

    My license was in hand about a week after submitting the paperwork.

    Because I got delivery confirmation so I can check it's travel, it left Maine last night and it's only going to Boston. USPS priority mail gets from where I live to Boston in about a day maybe two, and I sent it yesterday. In hand in a week would be great, Thanks.

    Trying to guess that is as easy as picking powerball numbers. Been pretty quick lately but you are dealing with the government. Good luck.

    My latest application was received in Mandeville on the 9th. It took them until the 12th to send it to West Virgina. I'm still waiting for them to receive it.
    Once you get your application number you can track it online. Last year my check cleared 5 days before the REC acknowledged receiving it.
    If you hear me yell "Eject,"Eject Eject. the last two will be echos. If you stop to ask why? you'll be talking to yourself, because by then you'll be the Pilot

    If your application is complete and accepted by the REC, you will get auto-generated e-mails as your application moves through the system. When I renewed last year, REC Boston sent my application to NMC the same day they received it. After that, it will depend on whether you have any safety/security or medical issues, and whether you qualify for what you applied for.

    I renewed in early Feb, it was 11 working days from submission until I had it in hand, straight renewal though, no upgrades or additions.

    REC Boston is quick, always has been one of the best RECs in the country. I took my 3AE test on a Monday and received my license on that same Friday. I wouldn't worry too much about them. The NMC for a while had been really slow, but I think now that people are getting more used to dealing with them, and what they want, they have sped up their process quite a bit.

    I received an email today that said my application cleared medical etc and is now just waiting for an evaluator. The website says it's still in transit.

    My experience is that the web site is slow to update status information.

    The website only updates at 7am each day. So if you get an email at noon, that won't be reflected until the next morning.
