You are force-fed Ginsters pasties (simulating raiding the Pilot's nav bag) until you vom. If you can hold down 12, you're in.
Dog Watchers who wish to progress to the best seats in the house, the ones with the windows and sticks and stuff must be able to do the above, along with a 2 litre bottle of Dandelion & Burdock. Inverted.
Not sure what AP1269A relates to but I recently sat the aircrew medical at Cranwell which consisted of a general physical examination by a doctor (ears and throat checked, reflexes, joint flexibility, 'drop and cough' etc..), a hearing test, an eyesight test and anthropometric measurements.
The sheet I was handed afterward stated the weight limit for a pilot in the AAC is 60.4 - 96.7 kg while the RAF is 56.8 - 94kg. Functional reach is 740mm for AAC and 720 for RAF. Sitting height is 865 - 1005mm for the AAC and 865 - 990mm for the RAF. For both the AAC and RAF buttock - knee range is 560 - 660mm and buttock heel is 1000 - 1200mm.
I'm not sure what the difference is between eyesight requirements but I think the RAF is more strict with its criteria.
It's worth pointing out that I fell within the range of all of the tests but was later sent a letter saying I need to get my BMI down from 27 to 25 so that is obviously also a factor.
soopaman - your questions make it sound like you are trying to hide something from the doc. You do know you sign a release so your medical docs can be seen as well don't you? It isn't worth hiding something as it could cause you trouble later.
On the subject of Aircrew medical, ive been looking into the AAC and the RAF, looks great and all that but.... I wear orthopeadic insoles due to fallen arches on my feet (flat feet). Does this mean i would fail a medical?
