I know this is proabably a question for Ninja, but I thought it would be of use to others so I am posting it. The doctor who did my medical is sending off the records of a check up I had done on my heart murmur and is fairly confident that I will be given the all clear. However, this is probably not going to happen till Jan/Feb. What I wanted to check was, will this affect my starting date? I now won't be able to do my PJFT till I return to the UK in April, however my AFCO seemed to be of the opinion that the date I will be given will be from date of application rather than date all the pre-joining tests are completed. Anyone been in a similar position?
