Are there any medical restrictions to prevent me from becoming a pilot?

FAQ » » Are there any medical restrictions to prevent me from becoming a pilot?

Some medical conditions may require a waiver for a pilot to get a medical certificate, and these are best described by the FAA medical examiner. We encourage all pilots to maintain a healthy lifestyle: no smoking, minimal or no alcohol, no drug use, regular exercise, and a healthy diet. Keeping yourself healthy is the best way to ensure passing your medicals.
