Nah seriously, it's whatever is specific to men and women that could be a cause for concern and requires a check, for women it's probably a breast check, worth a check though

Can someone please just confirm with me that you can only get a Class 1 done with in reason in the Mater and Gatwick?? Is there anywhere in the North of Ireland? I'm confused as I have just did the leaving cert and I dont know if I should go to Carlow to do aircraft systems? Basically, I just want to fly them not fix them.... maybe control them(ATC).. I need a Class 1 asap. I was planning defering the course in carlow for a year and see what happens in the mean time and get my Class 1 and see what pops up like the Irish Air Corps(again), the RAF, cedetship schemes and/or maybe going to Florida to get a CPL with an instructors rating and come home and instruct but that depends on the market here on the need of fixed wing instructors?? If all fails except the Class 1 then mayb I'll go to college in Carlow.... If medical fails I've crashed and burned... :oops: Can yous please give me your feedback on this guys and let me know what yous think as I am so confused its not even funny :?

Hi guys, a quick one on the Class 1 medical some of you may be able to help me with.

...just how strict is the Class 1 particularly with regard to hearing? I have more or less given up on the dream of flying commercially due to cirmcumstances up to now and the assumption that there is no way I'd pass a Class 1.

I've been told that I have a 10 -15% hearing loss due to a perfprated ear drum but am seeing a specialist shortly with a view to having this repaired. Could such a fix get me through?

These are the JAR Class 1 hearing requirements on the CAA website: http://www.caa.co.uk/default.aspx?catid ... pageid=533 ..... your specialist may be able to advise you as to whether or not you can realistically acheive the requirements after any procedure on your ear drum.

Alternatively contact the Aeromedical section in the Mater and they may give advice or an opinion: aeromed@materprivate.ie .

I also had a perferated eardrum when i was younger, had it repaired and
although the hearing istnt perfect still managed to get through a class 1. I would say i have a least a 10-15% hearing loss so dont give up the dream. Hearing requirements are not as strict as they used to be, IAA now matct the requirements of the CAA. When you do finally get around to doing your medical, dont try hide it from the examiners. Tell them exactly what the problem is and they'll do thier best to pass you. The ENT consultant in the Mater was very helpful so give him acall maybe and he'll give you an idea on whether or not you've got a chance of passing but in my opinion with a 10-15% loss id say you would have no problems. Best of luck, keep us posted
