    Does anyone know or know where I can find the basic qualifications to be pilot eligible? Like eyesight standards and stuff?

    My son wants to fly, but as a very young boy is was diagnosed with asthma. Does this early diagnosis disqualify him from being a pilot?

    Diagnosed...

    When and is it "still an issue?"

    That's the first question...after that, if it's past age 12, then it's a DODMERB question.

    Asthma

    We were told that he had allergy induced asthma. It started when he was 6 and ended pretty much by the time he was 8. It is not still an issue.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to answer this question.

    What you might want to do anyway, is contact Mr. Larry Mullen and ask his advice on how to handle this because it will come up.

    He's all over the DODMERB forum here and he's posted his contact information as well. He is "THE" man and is EXTREMELY helpful!!!
