RXO limitation
 
Hello everyone. I am new in the forum...
I am 20 years-old pilot CPL (EASA). I live in Madrid (Spain).
Probably in my next medical exam I will get a RXO limitation... as I have more than 3 dioptries of astigmatism.

I wanna ask you if that limitation (as is not an operational limitation... only a medical limitation that says I have to make a full ophthalmological exam each 2 years) is a problem to apply to airlines (or if a pilot with that limitation is unlikely to get selected).

Thanks.

Very interesting ! Must admit that after 27 years in this business I had never even heard of the RXO limitation until today ! It does not appear to be used, at least in the UK. This CAA document (from 5 years ago) mentions it, but says it's "superfluous" and that the UK will not be applying it ! (page 7 of 7).

Since then, of course, we have moved from JAR to EASA, but I still don't think this has any useful place in modern aeromedical certification. :=

Re-awakening this thread since I have the same concern. The RXO limitation was placed on my medical when I did a reval outside of the UK. Has anyone experienced any issues with the RXO limitations with respect to employment opportunities?
