      Eye test to make sure you have good vision. Then a pretty standard flight physical – this checks that the heart and lungs are functioning well, your blood pressure should be in a good range, your limbs should have full range of motion, and a lot of other things. Julia and Andrew probably have a good idea about this one. 😀
