    Is there anyway to check if I am potential pilot qualified on the DoDMERB site or USAFA/AFROTC sites?

    There are some other threads about this, and they say that if your status is "commission qualified" you are NOT PPQ. But they are a few years old, and things may have changed.

    My DODMERB status is "Qualified", but it says nothing about pilot. As far as I know (for AFROTC at least) you can't even compete for a pilot slot if your DODMERB isn't PPQ.

    Thanks everyone!
    (Moderators, if you think this should go under ROTC, go ahead and move it. Thanks!)

    Doesn’t work that way . When you get selected for a pilot spot you then get a 2-3 day pilot physical that includes vision testing , blood work and everything else they can think of . Any initial exam early on means nothing nothing until that final physical

    Agree with Humey.

    Your passing DoDMERB only means that you are medically qualified for the program you have applied for (USAFA or AFROTC).

    Flight Physicals for ALL branches of service are completely separate and much more in-depth.

    Correct, but according to my brother (an C/3C in AFROTC), AFROTC looks at your latest medical exam results (usually DoDMERB), enters those parameters into WINGS, and HQ decides if you are "potentially" pilot qualified. Then they let you apply for a slot, and then when you get it, you go to WPAFB for the FC1.
    I was just wondering if there's any way I can figure out if my parameters meet AFROTC/USAF PPQ requirements.

    I think you need to be normal, average blood pressure, heart rate with no outstanding medical problems. Eyesight within range. I dont think these exams are very detailed
