Warning to Pilots ~OR~ Rule 5 Woodsterman Style



FAA's new blood pressure testing method.


Warning: New procedure for testing blood pressure: I went for my annual flight medical check today and noticed that the FAA has, without consulting the flying community, developed new regulations regarding checking a pilots blood pressure. This is outrageous and will have serious consequences for all pilots!
  

Be warned! Fly safely!

  1. I wondered why so many pilots were red faced, I thought it was from booze!

  2. If a pilot is going to be a mile-high-club member, they need to be able to pass the test. We want the people flying the air bus to be able to #%&@ and fly at the same time.

  6. I'm guessing they are getting their BP test several times a day? I thought so.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  16. Well Odie, if this lady is the in flight nurse, I'm guessing the auto pilot will come in handy ;-)

  18. Odie, I just had the strangest thing happened, I have discovered a new life dream of becoming a pilot. If I fail this BP test by the FAA, could I be forced to retake it several times before being allowed to fly? I am "concerned" I may fail it many times because of the jog to the clinic...
