Hi folks. Been loitering around this forum for a while picking up all the quality gen on show, big thank you for that, but there comes a time in every chaps life when he must butch up and write something. Skipping the autobiography in favour of salient points: I am applying to be a Pilot in the FAA and had some potentially earth shattering news which I would like to clarify. Had my medical this morning and I failed to pick a couple of coloured numbers out of a splodge of other colours (I think the technical term in the Ishihara colour test). Despite never showing any evidence of colour blindness in the last 22 years, the doc says I may or may not, possibly be potentially borderline red/green colour blind. A bit. Perhaps. I have been referred to have the HW Lantern test. On reading many of the threads this means that I am at most CP3 and the HW Lantern is required to distinguish as to whether I am CP3, CP4 or CPBu**ered. Does this mean, on account of failing the splodges, I am up the proverbial creek as far as flying goes? Or can I pull it back with the lanterns? Any help would be appreciated.
