Question Does airlines hire pilots with restricted Class I certificate.

Hi guys, I got visited to get first class certificate. I discovered that I have deuteranomaly, basically I can see all the colors but poorly saturated ones. My question is: do airlines hire pilots with restricted certificate, I wouldnít be able to perform night flights.

For airline work you would be very lucky to secure employment Iím afraid.

What if the aircraft goes tech down route and canít be fixed until after dark etc ?

Would you be able to get a CPL/IR without a NVFR?

It is possible to become a flight instructor but limited to day vfr instructing only. You can be paid to instruct on a ppl with cpl theory exams. You could add the mei and teach mep class ratings as well. But the earning potential will still be limited.

Duca, I assume you are from Italy.
What exactly was the deviation? As in how far or how little are you from meeting the requirements?
Is there an alternate test you can take?

a doctor from enac called me asking if I wanted to do deeper vision examination by doing CAD test. He told me that basically I have a slight deviation but I could probably still get First class license since I have everything to fly safely apparently

If you pass the Ishihara test you will be fine, I got a friend with the same problem and he is now working for EasyJet. There is a clear distinction if you pass or not. If you get the medical class 1 ur good to go.

Go for extended examination. Unfortunatelly, with day only limitation I dont see you doing Instrument Rating (as nVFR is an entry requirement for that under EASA regulations), and without that it will be very hard to get any flying job aprart for FI as mentionned above. Moreover, even with IR but limitation to operate by day I am afraind no airline will be interested in such a candidate, as it would mean very hard, and favourable (thus not really fair to other crews) planning (no night flights, which tbh nobody like... not mentionning that especially during winter, a lot of "day flights" are in fact also nigth fligts, as departure / arrival is before / after dawn / dusk).

Duca,

Before we go into absolutes we need to cover a coupe of things.
Youíll need to talk about this with a eye specialist. If you are young is it possible this is age related? As in this mostly occurs in young males and it has a possibility of improving as you get older? Supplements you can take? Excercises you can do?
Get the exact vision requirements from your aviation administration and see a specialist who is NOT an aviation medical examiner.
Common mistake that people make is going into a Class 1 medical examination without knowing to expect and without prior medical consultation.
Once you see a AME it becomes officially record. If something may naturally improve over time then maybe wait before you take another test.
Unrelated but for instance heart murmur is very common in teenage males and disappears over time.
