Hi all, I completed my briefing a couple of weeks ago and left with a disappointing CAT3. I called my ACA today and was told there is a minimum delay of 12 months to anyone awarded a CAT3. This has come as a bit of a shock to me as I'd never heard of this before. Also, I'm already 23y7mths old, so the year delay will seriously hinder me time wise during this app. I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this apparent "standard delay" and if anyone has ever heard of it being wavered or reduced by the involved sponsor. I haven't spoken to my sponsor yet and had my de-brief, so I have the smallest hope that he may be able to reduce it.
