Hi, I'm an 18 year old senior in High School whose applying to the Air Force and Naval Academies. To me, either one would be a fine institution to attend, but when I'm scrolling through potential jobs, the pilot requirements for the Air Force (not the Navy I believe) state that you must have "No history of allergies or Hay Fever after age 12." No, I don't have significant allergies at all, but once, when I was 14, I had a routine skin-prick allergy test that tested for over 50 different allergens. Something was bound to come up. I was very health conscious at that age, so I guess that that's why I took the test. Here's the results (on a scale of 1-6 I think): -Ragweed: 4 -Cat: 3 -All others: 0-1 (negligible) The results weren't overwhelming. However, I would like the following questions to be correctly answered: 1) Will a single allergy test count as a "history of allergies," or would I have to have a more extensive history like a history of shots or medications regarding this? 2) Does having "no history of allergies, fay fever after age 12..." only apply to the Air Force pilot requirements or to Naval aviators, too? (I don't see any mention of allergies in the Navy's requirements) 3) If a single allergy test is done, but still concerning to the AF/Navy, will it be generally waiverable? 4) Are any signs of a history of allergies, mild, or otherwise generally waived? 5) What's the waiver process like, start to finish? 6) If I'm lucky enough to get in to one of the service academies, is there anything that I can start doing now in order to help my odds of obtaining a pilot waiver in 4 years? 7) What's the whole medical evaluation process like? How could they "sniff out" a potential history of allergies? Do they actually check your medical history, or do you check in "yes/no" questions about your medical history yourself? Essentially, can you "lie"? (or in better words, have them overlook it) 8) There are many people that share these same concerns. Please make as thorough and detailed answers as you can and answer each and every question to the best of your ability. Regardless of whether I become a pilot or not, it would be an honor to serve in he world's greatest Air and Space force. Still, I would be extremely honored to have an equal chance to compete for a pilot spot, regardless of my potential "history of allergies." If I forgot to add a question, which I probably did, I will post it below or edit it in on this post as questions 9+.
