CAA Initial Class 1

Seems like the CASA are a lot more strict than the CAA. I noted on my class 1 initial medical form that I had suffered from a mild form of childhood asthma. So before I went down to Gatwick I went to my local GP and got copies of all my doctors notes/appointments etc ready for the exam.

On the day of the exam I went through all the tests including the peak flow devices and passed all them without them asking about my Asthma.

I then finally met the medical examiner and he didn't even look at the records even though I told him about the Asthma. I thought It was a little strange but just thought they deemed me okay as I passed all the respiratory tests.
