Did you not already say that ?????ifty wrote:There is no point saying do this or that, spending whatever time and money then discovering you cannot get a medical. Without it you wont be able to fly for a living, do that, THEN plan your next step(s)
I like your optimism. There are few jobs out there right now. So I hope it works out for you. Im puzzled by your very last comment.michael747 wrote:I've packed in my job a couple months ago and am full time at the ATPL's now, And am still on track to having a job secured as an airline pilot when i'm 25....

This link is on the IAA website it's the document that outlines the medical requirements;another thing about the medical i wear glasses but i was told that the days that pilots could not fly if they needed glasses are over is this true.
I'm just out of my avionics apprenticeship. I've also done a year in Carlow but realised it wasn't going to get me a job as an avionic engineer. The problem you'll face getting into an maintenance facility is your lack of experience, Carlows biggest downfall. Your easa exams shouldn't really matter because you'll need on the job experience before you can apply for your license. This will be either 2yrs or 5yrs 'OJT' depending on Carlows certification. However, it might look well on a c.v. if you had them.Also in the engineering industry what jobs would be availabe without the easa exams somebody said they qualified in avionics for two years which is what i'm doing but did you get all your EASA JAR EXAMS done because a lot of the people in this course who are more interested in flying don't bother with does exams and just get the college qualifacation.
In reality you'd probably be better off with a qualification that wasn't aviation orientated. Something that also interested you aside from aviation, that you could fall back on. A lot of people seem to do this, 'my self included' think that these aviation courses are the back door into flying. Another example of this is Aeronautical Engineering in UL a standard Mechanical Engineering degree would be far more valuable and there's still nothing stopping you applying for aero engineering jobs.i'm not an engineer at heart and find the complex engineering parts boring and difficult
Here you go. I wrote this up a few years ago when I first did my Class 1....airbus wrote:can someone explain in lay mans terms what goes on in the medical.
