    So I put in for a class 1 with an AME just to get it out of the way because I hope to go commercial one day. My left eye corrects to 20/20 sometimes 20/25 but my right eye cannot correct past 20/25, so obviously I will fail that portion. Do I need to fill out any paperwork prior to meeting with my AME or will he put in for deferment and send the relevant paperwork to OKC? I haven't logged any hours yet so my understanding is I will get a med certificate restricted for student pilot only? Once OKC gets back, I can put in for an MFT? Can I solo on this restricted certificate? Will I need to do my MFT and checkride together or can I get the MFT before to get my class 1 SODA?
