Aircrew Medical - How many actually pass.

BBR

Newbie
Had a good trawl through previous posts and began to think that no-one actually passes these.

Is there a number for the success rate of those who are screened, and additionally would a low rate imply that a clean medical would result in a higher chance of being selected for Pilot/Obs/Aircrew?

Cheers,
B

All applicants must first pass the AFCO Medical examination.

All aircrew candidates must later undergo an Initial Aviation Medical Examination(IAME) after passing FATs. The AFCO medical examination notes are sent to Cranwell and screened by an aviation medicine specialist. Those who pass the initial IAME screening (no history of asthma, migraine, etc) are then booked-in to undergo the IAME at Cranwell.

In my experience, there seems to be about a 50% success rate at the IAME stage.

When I went through, (in the dark ages). Medical was the main failure point.
Probably why, (in my day), it featured very early on in the process. It wasn't like anything I had ever experienced.
The one good thing about it was at least if you did have a serious medical condition - they would find it and get you sorted.
Nothing you can do to prepare for it, just accept if they fail you it will normally be for a good reason.
