Hi all,

Like Windforce says, join CVDPA and let's deal with the real issue - that the standards are nothing but discrimination & that CVD does not affect the 'safe performance of duties' as a pilot. I'm a protanope & have been able to enjoy a fulfilling career here in Australia at all levels day & night from GA instructing & charter through to airline flying. I can tell you from my own experience that the CVD standards have nothing to do with safety. We are currently mid-way through another court challenge here & our legal advice supports that fact.

Arthur (& indeed all members of CVDPA) want to help out overseas & mount further legal challenges so that everyone can enjoy the same freedoms as us Aussie's do. This can only be done though by everyone getting on board & supporting the cause.

We can keep talking forever, but at the end of the day we need to be united together so we can bring about action!
