Re: A Twist on Medical

CBRRider after rereading the original post, the responses and your subsequent posts I find myself concerned about the future implications of the decision that you are on the cusp of making.

Re: A Twist on Medical

Coincidentally I had this exact discussion with my Aviation Doctor during my last medical in November. I had just started medication for blood pressure and was concerned about its impact on my ability to hold a Category One for my ATPL. My Dr told me a story about an applicant who came in for his fi...
