DoDMERB does not specify if you are pilot qualified. Someone can correct me if I am wrongHi,
If I do not get ‘pilot qualified’ after DoDMERB vision testing, will I be unable to graduate as a pilot? Or can I get PRK at the academy (and how do they decide who gets PRK)?
The first big group is done right after the beginning of the third year. They wait until after commitment to allow any cadets to have the procedure. There are other chances to get it done later, but most of the pilot hopefuls get it done at the first chance so that they are fully recovered before pilot selection happens Senior year. My son had his done the day after commitment and had his one-year clearance check-up right on schedule.At what point along the four years do they normally do the vision surgery?
If you do not meet vision standards to pass a flight physical, you will not go to UPT. The AF won't pay to train you for something you can't do.I think you’re right; but if vision does not mean standards, can you still go to usafa and graduate as a pilot?
