Airborne Class III physical


TSgt Hutch

Does anyone know if you can get a waiver for high blood pressure? I am currently taking Lotrel for my HBP.
BP is great on drugs(120/70)/not good off drugs (188/90)
Blood pressure

basically wondering if being on a medication for high blood pressure cause me to have to have a waiver for a class III.
most likely. Go find an Army Flight Surgeon or APA (Aeromedical Physician's Assisstant) and one of them should be able to tell you. I'm 90% sure that if they let you jump with HTN (hypertension) it will be with a waiver. Also, any Battalion Surgeon or PA in an Airborne BN will be able to tell you.
