So it turns out I have a 'color vision deficiency'. I have a hard time differentiating green from white, especially at night. I passed an accepted alternative test (the FALANT), but while waiting for my waiver, the FAA decided that they no longer accept this test for Class I & II medicals. Looks like I'll have to take a Medical Flight Test, which I may fail. I went up tonight and had ATC flash the light gun at me on downwind, and I had a hard time telling green from white. I hate offices. They aren't for me. I want to be a pilot, I've always wanted to be a pilot. I'm about to take my private checkride. I'm still in my 20's, and I have a four-year college degree. But with a medical forever stamped "Not valid for night flight or by color signal control", what options do I have beyond towing a banner down a beach for $12.00 an hour? I don't necessarily need to be Captain American Airlines 747 Guy, but I need to pay the bills. Can I still be a pilot?
