Hi I've searched high and low for answers to this question and was directed here to you fine folk who will hopefully be able to help me. I'm applying for pilot in the FAA and wanted to know how strict they are on the medical. I know they use the same medical as the RAF but if your too tall for fast-jet you can still be considered for rotary flying. is this right? I'm 6'4'' and I know I'm a pretty dead cert to fail the fast jet medical, I always wanted to fly a helicopter off the back of a ship amyway. Other than that I'm fit, getting weight down to sub 94kg (I'm 100 at the moment) and have perfect sight. So it's just height which is the major issue.
