Can I become a Pilot if I’m colorblind?
Yes, it is possible to become a Pilot if you are colorblind!
But it depends on the colors that you can and can’t recognize. In the past, even the most minor cases of colorblindness would prevent one to become a Pilot. This is due to the fact that traditional tests were only available to detect if an eye problem exists but not its severity. Today, with the advancement in medical technology, more sophisticated tests are developed by scientists that detect not just the problem but its severity. This progress gave hope to the people with color blindness because it will determine if their vision meets the minimum requirements for flight safety.
