Questions About the Army Flight Physical for Packet

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am longtime lurker, but 1st time poster.

I was wondering what the Flight Physical is like? What type of test do they do, etc. Also, I was approved for my medical waiver after I went to MEPS. I had a labrum tear in my shoulder that was repaired my arthroscopy in 2011. My recruiter told me I got all 1s on the assessment. I didn't get a chance to ask him what that means, so if someone knows about that I'd appreciate any explanations.

Would I have to be approved for another waiver to pass my flight physical? Or is the waiver I was approved for after going to MEPS also apply for my flight physical?

It will consist of limb measurements, hearing, dental, vision (in depth including dialation and topography), blood and urine samples, and a quick range of motion and physical exam.

Waivers are more a method of tracking problems than allowing disqualified people to fly. You can have a waiver for very small yhings.
