Yes you are but I'm sure it's case by case. The Dr. sent me to an military aerosurgeon sp? at St. Joe's in TO for more testing.
I passed but it did cost me a few months of seniority waiting for appointments.

I never did lose my medical with my initial diagnosis (pure luck) and was diet controlled at the time of the AC medical.

Keep your head up. I thought I was wasting my time for sure but my AC doctor experiences have been great.

I can guarantee if pilots need 120/80 or better, - there would be exactly zero airlines in business.

...Seems they are going to remove the axe and the control column from the cockpits for security reasons.

I am overweight, out of shape, and diabetic. Yet I still manage to maintain 120/80... I think 140/90 or better would make sense, but I would think that there are plenty of pilots out there who are always 120/80 or better.

Many athletes have high bp.. I believe 140 and above is considered hypertension.
