Hi,

Does anyone know if you need an EASA medical certificate? or do BA provide this?

Thanks

Unlikely but go with a letter from your GP regarding the situation. I’ve been asked to supply the same and also produce medical records from over a decade ago regarding my treatment. He explained that it is an EASA requirement but didn’t foresee any problems.

Just take your glasses with you. Nothing to worry about. The eyesight test is run of the mill stuff.

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me if the following medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes is acceptable for the cabin crew medical assessment:

Metformin
Gliclazide
Ramipril
Simvastatin

Also, what does the hearing test involve? Is the same as the pilots, an audiogram? Or just a whisper test with your back turned away?

Many thanks for your feedback on this.

Hey buntty,

On the hearing test I had mine end of January and it was just a whisper test with your back turned away

Thanks for your reply Sophie.

Could you give me a bit more detail on the hearing test?

Do you have to cover one ear at a time? And cover your ear by pressing on the tragus? Or just listen with both ears?

Do they say words or a combination of letters and numbers like K-2-B?

This is a mad question, but how quiet was their voice can you liken it to anything?

As you can tell I am worried about this part of the test!

Many thanks for your advice.

Bunty

Hi,

I’m former crew returning but never had to do the medical when I joined before. I’ve recently started on anti depressants for anxiety, but this was triggered by a situation in particular that I’m now out of and is totally irrelevant to the job, which I know I can do as I did it before no worries. Do you think I will pass the medical? And if I don’t, is it straight up you’re out? Or do they give you a second chance?

Thanks x

Hi Guys,

I have a medical from my previous cabin crew job which is dated until 2022. It was conducted by a aero doctor does anyone know if this would be BA approved?

Hey :)

I have my medical in just under 2 weeks and was wondering what I could expect? I've read loads of posts but nothing of recent months...

If you could give me a step by step process and all the tests they do and what for, that'd be great

I'm a massive over thinker so this would really put my mind at rest ! :)

Thank you!!
