Does anyone know what some of the "disqualifying" conditions are for EJA? More specifically, blood pressure limitations?
Just completed the EJA Medical about 2 weeks ago. VERY THOROUGH!!! As far as blood pressure is concerned, I would guess the First Class Medical parameters would be appropriate. We had 2 folks in my group that had problems with the glucose tolerance test. I have never been in the military but some of the pilots that had told me this compared to a military flight physical.

Good Luck,

That is what I kinda figured - I'm sure it's simular to the American Airlines physical. That sucker literally took all day!

By the way; about the blood glucose test. To anyone going for the exam if you are on a very low carbohydrate diet the glucose-tolerance test (GTT) will come back as abnormal. You need to consume at least 200g of carbohydrates a day (4-days) for the test to be accurate. Sorry to all the Adkins dieters!
