Becoming a Navy Pilot


7 of 9

Physical Condition
You’ll have to take a battery of physical, psychological and background tests. You’ll take a flight physical to prove that you’re medically qualified to fly. Your vision can be no worse than 20/40, correctable to 20/20, to become a pilot. You can’t be colorblind or have problems with depth perception. The Navy does accept applicants who have had laser eye surgery, however.
