Rang the IAA medical officer re: this.
The airport tower lantern test is no longer sufficient for unrestricted licencing. So I have to do the stupid Ishihara test again, probably fail it again, and then go to the Mater (where Gay ?) the Mater Hospital where they put you in a dark room and after a period of time flash lights at you.
God knows how much that will cost, but seriously I'm not going for a moon shot here, I just want a clean unrestricted PPL licence.
The restrictions are.
Limited to VFR (that's no problem)
Limited to Irish Airspace (Why for God's sake, are other countries more colourful ?)
Limited to Irish registered aircraft. (This sends me I'm afraid, it's stupid and there is NO logical reason for it other than some dip stick who never flew a paper plane in school, thought it a good idea)
If any of you out there can give me a sound reason for this please let me know, but it is really frustrating and more than a little demoralising at the moment . HELP
