Medical was fine looking back - no probs. But at the time it's all a bit new and you cannot help but feeling a bit 'apprehensive'. You have a pretty thorough once over physically, blood, urine, height/weight, blood pressure & electrocardiogram.
Trying to purposely relax while blood pressure & electrocardiogram are taken is the hardest bit as is if you don’t the doc’s can’t take the reading.
Other than that, no that hard. One last thing. I wear glasses (am very short sighted) and the eye tests are quite demanding. Make sure you have an up to date eye prescription with you and are wearing your up to date specs. If you have a diopher difference of more than three between both eyes you will never be allowed to fly.
All in all, just try and relax as best you can, for a fit and healthy person it’s no big deal. If you enjoy a few beers, take it easy for a few days before.
I believe the shirt thing is mostly for the military guys, all I got was a lot of handshakes and ‘well done’s’ and congratulations from Bournemouth Tower. (they held up a 737 to give me no.1). Excellent Class D airport for commercial and students alike. < http://www.flybournemouth.com/>
