#2  Health Assessment  Posted 11/03/2020 at 13:20
Hi all,

I am currently in college studying cabin crew, I have been free from mental health issues for approximately 3 years, I have read CAA guidance and it’s a straight up no.
I asked my tutor who is ex BA cabin crew as well as an ex trainer and she said there wouldn’t be a need for me to disclose this information.

Do the aeromedical examiners look through your health record?

All help is appreciated.

In reply to post #2...
They look at your full necessary physical/mental health history, including (some airlines anyway) visits to the GP and the reasons for them.
If you’ve had no health issues, then there’s nothing to worry about. Even if you have, there still usually nothing to worry about unless it will effect you flying, or could come back if you started flying.

Being an airline crew is one of my dream jobs but I am too late for this. I am encouraging my niece to apply but she has asthma. So I am not sure if this will be a hindrance.
