went for my medical...flew through it...until i was told i had failed my hearing test!?!?!?

couldnt believe it.......my left ear let me down (just im told only slightly) i though my right ear was worse.

all i could hear was the lady playin with the buttons on the machine!

*text deleted* go back in two weeks and try again..

*text deleted* get my ears cleaned out before hand.


was really shocked by this....not gutted though...not yet at least.

but my afco did say that once its sorted and pjft is done...ill be n the 11th dec prmc

Unlucky Alan,

That's the one I feared most as nothing you can really do about it to improve other than a real deep clean.

Although I'm sure firing blanks on the range wouldn't have done you much good over the years.

Best of luck

GW

well got to go back on the 28th...getting my ears shringed on the 27th.

but my left ear has been aching (small amount mind you) all this morning..to be fair...never really took any notice of it

but i will pass it next time...as if its the same woman (which im told it is) i will remember how she conducts the test.

but i failed by the samllest of margins i was told.



doc told me a fair few failed the hearing that day too....HMMMMM

Hi alan

im border line as well, not applied yet, but knew my hearing and eyesight are a little duff so had private tests, should just pass on both, what is the RM hearing test like? I got the full break down of the colour perception test and im 90% sure it wont be a problem, need to speak to my AFCO about the hearing test as well.

Be careful with the ear syringing, doctors don't really do it anymore unless they really have to. It can damage the ear as my doctor wouldn't syringe mine when I got some wax blocked, I had to use drops for 3 weeks and let it clear on it's own.

Try using some drops called "Exterol", get them from the pharmacy they work brilliantly, just put some in first thing in the morning and when you go to bed. I reckon the machine was on the duff though, especially as several failed??
