Hey guys,


I'm completing my time with the Air Force later this year and intended on using my GI-Bill to go to a school for PPL-CFII+. Once I read into it a bit I found out all the schools I was interested in (and likely all the others that are VA approved) require a second class cert to begin. I was born with amblyopia, correctable to 20/25. Not a big deal it seems, many pilots fly for a living with way worse. I can get my first/second class by taking a flight medical exam for a SODA. But of course I can't do that without my PPL in the first place. Back to square one. I figure I'm going to be stuck fronting the bill for my PPL so I can get medically qualified to attend school. Anyone else seen this situation? Know of a VA approved school that I only need my third class for?
