Class 1 Medical with disability?


New Member
I recently got awarded a 10% disability from the VA for my back. I have been diagnosed with a Lumbar strain that brings chronic back pain when I do physical work or am on my feet all day.

That being said, do I have a chance at a class 1 medical? I can sit in a seat all day and manuver a plane fine. I am just a littlw worried this will hurt my Chances.

You do not need to report disabilites YET, not until the GG series Form 8500-8 comes out. When it does, report the 10% VA disability and tell the AME why you have it. It should not be a problem.
