    I understand that having diabetes disqualifies you from obtaining a first and second class medical certificate, therefore barring you from becoming a professional pilot. I did some research and I wanted to know if it was accurate. I read that it was still possible to obtain a third class medical certificate despite having diabetes. I’m looking to get my Private Pilot’s License, and technically I only need the third class to obtain my license, but I have diabetes, and I manage it well in my opinion. I just wanted to know if trying for my private pilot’s license was something possible for me.

    You need to visit an aviation medical examiner for proper advice. You can use this locator to search for the nearest AME in your area. https://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/
