.{Comment: FFS who'd be a DAME??}
my doctor is a pretty sharp cookie so I asked him about it one visit.

"yeah I looked into it because you're not the only pilot I see, but I'm a real doctor, I'm not going to waste my time with all that crap"

a thumbs down from my doctor.

when you look back through history, post WW2 it was realised that the civilian pilots formed the ready reserve for the Air Force.
the decision was to have pilots pass the military medical so that they could be absorbed without further screening.
medicals never were about fitness for civilian flying.
