fit for trying!

Does the HR and captain know of your condition?

Which color(s) are you insensitive to?

You've come this far, at least keep your head up until everything is confirmed.

Remember, always bet on yourself.

I will inform HR tomorrow if I could not pass medical.

I am weak on green color, cant see all the ishihara, especially the green one and red I am not too good, but ok, still see.

Yes, I will finish the journey with my head held high.

Architect enjoy FTA!

sigh... sorry to hear your story

anyone use sky test for middle east to prepare for the initial test?

I'm worried about the basic coordination test which i always get lower than 60%...

Do I need to correct the pointer and always make it pointing the blue line? there's no tolerance?

Unhappy

kingcsalomon,

You are not alone....
I have my 1b few days after,
after reading your post,
I picked a few test on Google.
I am quite sure, although not proven by doctor, I have red-green blindness too...

I may just send a mail to HR and tell them I will withdraw from the interview..

thanks for your reminding.

I have perfect colour vision but i'm short sighted....

I can't find any information about the limit of eye-sight.

I heard that people with glasses can still be a pilot.

What I can be sure is that I have 20/20 or now 1.5 eye sight with glasses on...

Do they need to test our eye with glasses off?

Can someone tell me what aircraft will be used for grading and cadet training?
Is it TB10 for grading and DA40, DA42 and CAP10 for cadet training?

They seem to still be using the Grobs for grading even though they were supposed to go July this year. Training is done on the TB10, DA40-42 and CAP 10.

Thx!
So TB10 are still used for module1/2 until the completion of GFPT, then proceed to DA40/42?

They don't do GFPTs anymore unfortunately, CP62 was the last class to do it. But to my knowledge the TB10 is used for mod 1,2 and 3, the DA40 for mod 4 and 5, and the 42 for mod 6. Not sure if this is exactly right though.

Thx again Drakeskyle!
God they're really cutting everything, not even GFPT now!
So let me get this straight, after the training we will have gained 200 flight hours which consists of 160 from day flying and 40 from the night? And we'll received HKCPL, HKMECIR and frozen ATPL?
Sorry for asking, just wanna make sure that I get everything right!

kingcsalomon:

I am sorry to ask, but,
any good news for us after the color test?

Will they go for a "Lantern test" if Ishihara test is failed?

Don't be upset! You are not alone!
Same as you, I can't see all the Ishihara though.
