Young Wannabe Wanting To Become A Pilot

Sun May 21, 2000 12:10 am

Hi there,
I was just wondering is it worth it becoming a pilot ?
I have some mild asthma, would that affect me ?

Maybe someone out there could give me some advice or guidance

Any comment is appreciated !

Thanks a million

Go to
and go to the medical health issues. In the past few weeks there was something about it there. To be honest I doubt think it should be a real problem but you never know!
