From another post - this is a Public Service Announcement.


"...depending on the degree of color blindness....It is very important to try the alternate tests before doing the FAA test, since that one is final, if you fail it, you will never in your life fly solo at night."

WRONG.

Please don't burst people's bubble with incorrect information.

I am Color-Blind. I failed the Color Vision test. I had the Solo Night Restriction and then did both the First and Second Class Medical tests for demonstrated ability and had the restriction removed.

I have been flying for 44 years...30 of those flying 121 operations for 3 different airlines.

Color Blindness is NOT a Game Ender.

Thanks.
