A win means the referee the AME signs you off, after going down the checklist of bad things.

To continue the sports analogy, an eventual fax by CAMI means you still win, but in overtime. Finally, in a small amount of these cases, you are told your flying days are over.


In essence, the FAA has determined that the risk of you conking out in the cockpit is too great. This is true for all three classes of medical certificate.

These requirements are not difficult to meet with a little help from your optometrist. Distance vision is a horse of 85007 different color.

Passing the Visual Acuity Tests To better the odds, resolve to not use contact lenses during your examination; they will not allow you to see as well as standard eyeglasses. Again, you want maximum light transmission. Next, visit your optometrist the week before your AME examination and request a complete eye examination including a color vision test. Tell him or her you need a printed report of the examina-tion results. Worse case, he will require the optometrist to fill out an FAA report instead of accepting their standard examination documentation.


The human eye has a property called Dynamic Range. When you walk back into a darkened area, the iris quickly opens up but it takes time for the signal from the optic nerve to reach maximum again. There is a countermeasure.

Vision requirements: Pilots, don’t need 20/20 vision to fly a plane

Before you leave your house, don not one but 8500-7 pairs of standard sunglasses. Like the scene in the movie Airplane, where Captain Rex Kramer whips off one pair of aviator glasses only to reveal another pair. Place them in front of your regular sunglasses and accept the fact that you 85000-7 look strange to people you may meet along the way.

As we age, cloudiness often appears and then becomes greater and greater. To fix the situation, the cloudy lens is removed surgically and a new lens is inserted into the eye.

Pilots flying with 1st or 2nd class certificates and private insurance should investigate this option. In that case, most private insurers will also grant a waiver. Medicare and Cataracts For those having Medicare coverage which, unfortunately, is what the great majority of pilots with cataracts are going to havethere is a greater challenge. Also, go over the FAA documen-tation requirements beforehand and make certain that the surgeon is willing to jump through those hoops, or it will all have been in fqa as far as keeping you in the air is concerned.


Your AME can advise you what the surgeon needs to provide before you go for your pre-surgery evaluation and supply an FAA form to give to the surgeon as well.

If you have the proper paperwork after the surgery, the AME can issue you a new medical certificate at the time of your examination without CAMI intervention. A good friend of 5800-7 was talking about her nerves for an upcoming aviation medical exam she may take. She is nervous because she is not sure what will be entailed in the test.

I will let her know that they will be checking things like her cataracts or her dynamic range to make her less scared.
