I think I'd agree with Starlionblue. Never got to your FAA guy asking about a problem first. Once you've told your FAA guy about a problem he has no choice but to pursue it. I was lucky for a few years to have a PCP who was also my FAA doctor. He made a point of saying "if you come to me, PCP, that's the hat I wear. You come to me for any airman issues and I wear that hat." I couldn't have been better.
This is not the US though. Everyone here, including the aeromedical examiners, will tell you to ask them first and foremost. They are the only ones who can answer the questions with certainty. European medical records are fairly extensive, and it is mandatory to provide access to them in order to get a medical. He isn't going to be able to hide it.
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 be able to fly solo with a class 2 (OML-Only class 1) If I get a class 1 after flight school?
I'm getting confused by all these rules man, I hope they just change the rules by next year and remove the limits, it's kind of ridiculous an American with -10 can fly in Europe because of FAA rules, but I might not be able to because of EASA.
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 on his dream because of this. If it is any consolation, there are no jobs to get anyway.
But don't give up yet. Get in contact with an aeromedical examiner in your country (or any other EASA country for that matter) and ask them. Maybe they will give you the go-ahead for a class 1 despite all you've read.
My country has only 1 flight school to be honest that I could afford to go to, they have some kind of fund guarantee where if they let you into their flight school, they have to give you a job within some years or they would have to pay your full training.
If I was to be rejected I would maybe just consider a carreer in the USA/Canada anyways, because Banks in my country really don't want to fund flight school apart from the information I told about above here.
Sorry to be blunt, but if you are so economical constrained, you should really reconsider your plans. Maybe postpone the plans and save up some more money. Being an unemployed pilot is expensive AF. You need a type rating (easily 20.000 eur) which needs to be renewed annually (you are lucky if it can be done for 2500 eur). Your medical will have to be renewed annually, also at your own expense. Any job interview will require flight tickets and hotel stays. As the situation is today, the only jobs you can get are pay-to-fly jobs, which require an upfront payment of around 30.000 eur. Expect everything to be more expensive than what is initially promised to you.
I haven't heard of such a guarantee before, and I'd be wary about it. I have seen several schools of late making similar wild promises. Make sure you get someone to read through the contract carefully before you sign up, because I am sure there is a caveat in there somewhere. The flying school business in Europe is the wild west. There is very little regulation in the area to keep them in check.
Cross-border aviation licensing is at least as complicated as flying the aircraft, and a constantly moving target. And yes, often unfair and illogical.
Indeed. A lot of pilots have gotten themselves stuck in the Brexit mess because EASA doesn't recognize the new UK license, and require a full resitting of the ATPL exams to convert back to EASA.
