To be a pilot, you must study and follow the training program in pilot school. You can choose among many options of pilot schools local or abroad. The most important things are to find a good pilot school and then to prepare yourself to enter that school. Keep in mind that, if you commit to be a professional pilot, make sure you have prepared the money to pay all neccessities.
Why can’t some people become a pilot in spite of having much money? Perhaps you found the fact that students with rich parents fail in pilot school admission test. What’s the reason? Well, money is not the only source of success in being a pilot. Everyone needs to know an important factor that really matters. As in the headline today, it is absolutely about health. When people have particular illness, they cannot pass the medical examination. Yes, a pilot prospective must have healthy body with minimum or no sickness. Here we are going to talk about common health issues of pilot school prospectives that make them unable to continue on their dreaming:
Eye or sight problem is the most common health disorder that pilot school parties found in the prospectives. Pilot school candidates who suffer from eye problems will not be processed and accepted. A pilot must have good sight because flying the aircraft or plane is a truly vital task. If the pilot have eye problems, there’s a bad possibility that they cannot see clearly in the altitude. A pilot must be sensitive to the circumstances of the sky when doing his job
Another common issue is related to dental, for example, cavity, tooth decay, bleeding gums, and many more. Some people still get confused of the relationship between teeth and pilot. Well, dental problem also matters to the aviation world. It is not a trivial health problem. As a matter of fact, when experiencing tooth or gum pain, it also affects the part of the nerve. That’s why in every medical examination for pilot school entrance, there’ll always be dentist to check dental issues of every candidate.
Disproportionate height or weight
Actually what is being checked in the beginning is the body whether it is ideal/proportional or not. It is almost the same as the test for being a pilot or shouldier. Candidates must own disproportionate height and weight. Both must be balanced to each other. Candidates with ideal body are less likely to have health problems. Forthermore, it is also for the appearance which means that a pilot should have a good look.
Other harmful diseases
Last but not least, a pilot absolutely mustn’t suffer from harmful diseases, for instance, related to lungs, heart, breathing, and so forth. Indeed it is too dangerous for them to become a pilot, a profession with high risk.
Well, some health problems can be solved by doing treatment or medication before following a test to become pilot school student. For example, if your teeth is uneven, you can use dental braces.
