Flt physical WOFT - perforated ear drum


Recommended Posts

153A Army Rotary Wing Aviators,


Does anyone know what type of auditory device the physician uses to check your ears for a Class 1A physical for WOFT?


I have a very small pin-hole of a perforated ear drum. When my ENT physician has examined my ear with just a lighted magnified instrument, he cannot view my perforation, but when he uses a machine that operates similar to a sonar, this machine will detect a small perforation.


I am curious if I should go ahead and get the perforation repaired or cross my fingers and hope it will not be discovered.
