Hello, Last week I had my first medical appointment with the AME and I failed the test that they ask you (which musical note number does the red line cross) The AME had me to take the 8500-7 form to my eye doctor. I took the form and my eye doctor did the eye evaluation and fax the form to the AME. The AME said that he will call the FAA to see what their judgement for my case would be. Two days later the AME called to tell me that he had to deferred the application due to being 8 on exophoria looking to an object at a distance of 18 inches, and that the FAA standard is 6 or less ( I don’t have symptoms of diplopia and my eye doctor wrote that on the 8500-7 form) and that I will be getting a letter from the FAA with instructions. He said that they will probably have me to do a medical flight test. My questions are these. 1) when would I be getting this letter? 2) how is this medical flight test and what should I expect on that flight? 3) can I still get a 1 first medical certificate ( I want to fly in the airlines) I have read things about SODA. Thanks everyone.
