As some of you probably already know, I’m starting the process to move away from IT and into aviation as a full time career. Flying has always been something that I loved – even as a kid, and given the way the aviation industry is screaming for pilots, now is a great time to have the whole mid-life crisis and change careers.Wow is there a lot of medical things to be done! At least I know why pilots never seem to die on the job (well, without making a mess on the ground :))… I’ve passed my first medical yesterday… Urine tests, basic vision, colour blindness, reflexes, etc etc. Today is the ECG, blood tests, etc etc, tomorrow is the hearing test, and on the 1st of November, I go to have the back of my eyeballs inspected. It’s pretty full on!
