Minimum height for Aircraft Handler

Hi all,

Would really like to know what the minimum height requirement is for Aircraft Handler. I'm not exactly tall. I've been reading a few things on the internet and it states 166cm but that was in 2012 so I don't know if it has changed or not!

I'm so worried that my height will let me down now I've found this out.

0704. Physical Standards for Candidates - Height

a. Minimum height standards for all candidates is 151.5 cm.


b. Potential candidates who measure less than 151.5cm can be offered theopportunity to take the RN Reach Test. The test requires candidates to reach the topclip of a standard RN bulkhead door.






I'm not sure if there is a specific rule about aircraft handlers elsewhere - if there is I can't find it.

No worries, thank you, I'm sure I'll be able to pass the reach test. I don't want to fail the test because of my height!

There used to be a minimum acceptable height for Aircraft Handlers, but that stipulation was dropped, a reflection of the fact that the aircraft the Handlers were working with had changed so dramatically as a consequence of the SDSR. The required height now is the required height for all applicants.

I'm like 5'3 I think so don't know what that is in centimetres hahahah :)

Well you can use this opportunity as practice for the RN admissions tests :)

Given that one foot is approx 30.5 cm, and one inch is approx 2.5 cm, how many centimetres tall is someone of height five feet and three inches?
