Navy Medical - Pilot

#1
Hi all,

I had my Navy medical today. Everything was fine except for in the hearing test, I got a 1 (top score), in my right ear, but a 2 in my left - the doctor said that my hearing of very high frequencies in that ear was slightly worse. Is this a big issue if I want to become a pilot? I couldn't see anything on the Navy website about hearing standard for pilots, and the recruitment office that I go to has closed for the day. I'm just slightly anxious to know!

Any help would be really useful!

Thanks

I, too, have messaged someone =)

Edited to add: I'll let the resident scab lifter/moderator sort out the bad advice I've given =D

With aviation medicine being a specialised subject the OP may need specialised advice. No disrespect to AD I don't know what his specialisation is. From my days flying, all matters relating to eye problems I had, I was always referred to AV Specialist doctors.

Doesn't need a specialist at all - easy to answer if you have access to the appropriate docs. I don't at present do can't answer.

Hearing for pilot is: H1/H1 (1 for both ears).
