I still don't understand why the Marines won't take a FALANT and the Navy does. I thought everything went through the same people.
found it: "The FALANT will be phased out eventually from all classes, but those designated and student aviators who have passed the FALANT prior to phase-out will be grandfathered for their career""The FALANT or Optec 900 may be considered for selective aviators who were designated before 31 December 2016."
-from the link above
I wonder if this excludes SNAs who were given the test before the cutoff date but not designated aviators before then...
Thank you for that. I didn't find that as I searched through the documents at med.navy.mil.No. A quick Google search found this form (PDF link) and the following instruction on it under 'Preparation for Testing' on the second page:
4. If examinee ordinarily wears contact lenses or glasses for distance, they should be worn. Color correcting lenses, if worn, must be removed prior to testing.
