Re: Any chances of getting a EASA medical class 1 when exceeding vision limits?

Are you even within limits for a class 2? Sounds risky if you ask me, investing a minor fortune in flight training without knowing if you can even pass a class 1 with a limitation? What if they find something else the prevents you from getting a class 1? You wouldn't be the first person to miss out...

Re: Any chances of getting a EASA medical class 1 when exceeding vision limits?

That's a lot of if's. Look at it this way: It took 8 years after the 2007 financial crash before airlines even started hiring again, another 4-5 before it really became good. We are way, way worse off this time. Even if it does become better for the reasons you listed, it could be 15-20 years befor...

Re: Any chances of getting a EASA medical class 1 when exceeding vision limits?

You could fly on a Class 2, but if you are unable to get a Class 1 before flight school how can you know you can get one after? That wouldn't be ideal at all indeed, thanks, I didn't think of that at all. Do you have the right to work in the US and/or Canada? Not now, but I got an older friend and ...

Re: Any chances of getting a EASA medical class 1 when exceeding vision limits?

A problem I see is that you will have trouble with the flying school. Every flying school includes a large portion of solo-flying. A Cessna 172 is a single pilot aircraft, so I am not even sure it is allowed to count it as a 2-man crew. Can't have a co-pilot on a single-pilot aircraft. Wouldn't I b...

Re: Any chances of getting a EASA medical class 1 when exceeding vision limits?

However many airlines don't want to delve into requirements minutiae. They have plenty of candidates that meet the stated requirements already. Last time I got a prescription I was told I can see 120% with my glasses, I actually have no Idea what it means but I guess it can be corrected to 20/20 th...

Re: Any chances of getting a EASA medical class 1 when exceeding vision limits?

I know the FAA only cares if the vision is correctable to the required standard. This is more murky with EASA. Is laser an option for you? I have heard EASA even with laser only counts your vision BEFORE laser, which would be extremely ridiculous (so if you had -8D before, they would still count -8...

Any chances of getting a EASA medical class 1 when exceeding vision limits?

Hello, according to EASA the limits for vision are: (i) hypermetropia not exceeding +5.0 dioptres; (ii) myopia not exceeding –6.0 dioptres; (iii) astigmatism not exceeding 2.0 dioptres; (iv) anisometropia not exceeding 2.0 dioptres. However later on I found: Notwithstanding point (c)(1), applicants ...
