I’m new to the whole aviation thing and started training about a month ago. Went for my medical after a few hours in the air not thinking anything of it as I am in good shape, or so I thought. I have had 2 pulmonary embolism events in the past, the last being almost 3 years ago. I am on blood thinners and in the process of getting my records together to send in. The doctor has encouraged me to continue with the process as he believes I will receive a special issuance. I have all the tests, etc. and everything falls within normal ranges. I have thought about going the sport pilot route now, but worry I am SOL since I may be on the radar. Is this true and does anyone have any experience with blood clots and getting a license? I was hoping to get a ppl to aid with work travel, that really caused all my health issues to begin with. Any advice is appreciated.
