    Nothing much. Just standard checks - height, weight, urine, blood. They will also check your butt size, arm/knee length to ensure that you can fit into the cockpit.

    If you meet their requirements, fairly easy. But like nixontkl said, they have pretty specific sizes that they can accept - too long or too short you will fail as you either can't fit or can't reach the controls.

    Went for it 6 years ago, and I failed at aeromedical because they said I have childhood asthma - which is strange because I don't even know of it.

    Didn't pester them for the reason behind it... But happy in what i'm doing now
