Here is an in-depth video detailing the flight physical. This tells you what to expect for the WOFT flight physical on the civilian side of things. I also faced a few issues as it relates to color vision so anything you want to know just ask. It also has time stamps in the description if you are wanting info on one specific thing.

Does high blood pressure disqualify me?

You have to have below 140/80. Anything above that is considered hypertension. You will want to refer to the aeromedical policy letters to see what your options are if you are over that.

With white-coat I've hovered close to that limit. I've met soldiers given a waiver relatively easily, even as an initial applicant, for hypertension controlled with blood pressure medication. 

OP, in your research what have you found about waivers for colorblindness that does not meet the FALANT/Rabin, etc standard?

The FALANT is no longer a valid test. You have to pass the Rabin Cone Contrast Test if you fail the PIP. They do not do waivers for this as this is the minimum standard. If you are already a rated aircrew they do them on a case by case bases. But for initial flight applicants you need to pass the CCT. Refere to the aeromedical policy letters for this exact standards.

Are there more current policy letters available? Those still reference FALANT.

No those are the most recent. The new use of the Rabin Cone Contrast Test is in the AR 40-501. This is what really matters. Chapter 4 is the medical requirments for flying duty. When you take your flight physical you have to meet these requirments.

 

This is the most recent ar 40-501 that came out this year.

The aeromedical policy letter tell you what the process is for waivers and what they do for medical issues outside of the ar 40-501 standards.
