Below the 136 I remember just signing a paper saying I was acknowledging I had a higher risk of injury or death if I ejected. Would not have to sign that paper now unfortunately ☹

yea the second part of that, the part relating to whirly twirly gumdrops..... yea, not really a thing. i havent been 214 since high school.
I didn't say it was enforced equally across the fleet, but is enforceable. A former member here was called to the carpet for being outside the limits. He was grounded and he had to loose a bunch of weight because some flight doc had his panties in a wad after interacting with the former member. So, be careful who you piss off.

It was MasterBates during his helo to E-2/C-2 transition. And it was more of a height thing than a weight thing. He fit in T-45A but not the C (or maybe it was the other way around). Eventually CNATRA himself got involved and made them let him fly with a waiver stating he knew his knee caps could be history if he had to eject.

He was over max weight too but he got that off way before they got his height waiver.

It was during this time he built the Cubi Cat at the O’Club.
