Class 1 or Class 2 medicals(Indian)
I intend to start my pilot training course sometime in September or October this year. However, I am worried about the Class 2/Class 1 medicals. From what I have checked on the Internet, Class 1 is required before one actually joins an airline. Is it correct?
What worries me most is that I was actually obese for nearly 7-8 years of my life with my peak weight hitting nearly 120Kgs but since then, I have put in a lot of effort and lost a hell lot of weight and now weigh 81Kgs and my height is 174cms...my BMI is still around 28 and I am not color blind(plus my doctor said that my vision is normal too).
I am a healthy person, exercise regularly(5 times a week) and recently got my blood sugar checked which is normal but, my father has type 2 diabetes. Should this be a cause of concern? But, my biggest concern however is that I have a lot of hanging skin after my weight loss especially in the abdomen area. Will this lead to me failing any of the medicals? I am very very worried.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
