    i had a sleep evaualation for DOT and queried the Doc about aviation.
    He explained to pass a medical, you must also pass an all day 'awakeness' test.
    Anybody experience this?

    I didn't do anything like that.
    Just got a treatment plan with a CPAP and moved on.
    Have a follow up once a year, doctor writes CAMI a letter and I get my first class cert.
    Was grounded for only 30 days or so at the start.
