I have a couple of questions that may or may not be able to be answered here.
First and foremost, aviation has always been a considerable interest of mine, from flying as a kid with my grandfather to traveling and living abroad with my family growing up, I get more excited about going to the airport and flying than I do the destination. Being a commercial (in particular international) pilot has always been a dream of mine. However, I have a medical condition that according to the FAA guidelines states that I am not eligible for licensure. I have glaucoma as a result of a direct hit to the eye when I was 12 (I am now 32). It is currently under control, no meds (and has been for close to 2 decades) and I have correctable 20/20 vision. Had a cataract replacement a few years ago to boot. So is it even worth my time getting my hopes up about flight school, only to be crushed during the FAA exam?
Secondly, I have an established career that I might be able to work during school (I am a chiropractor with my own practice). Are classes all day every day, or is it something that a few hours a day could be dedicated to work to cover living expense, etc?
Thanks in advance!
