Can you be a pilot if you are colorblind?

Last Updated on 01/28/2020 by FilipiKnow

Yes, you may be allowed to fly planes even if you’re colorblind but there will be restrictions when it comes to the type of planes that you‘ll be allowed to fly.

One way to determine if your color blindness will get in the way of your dream to become a pilot is by doing the red/green light test. If you can distinguish a red from a green light, then you may have a good chance of flying commercially.

For now, the best thing to do is get an Aviation Medical Exam to get properly diagnosed and have a medical professional determine if you’re fit to enroll in a flying school.
