from what i hear u have to take a depth perception test to get hired as an ATC but in all the forums and books ive never seen it in the list, anyone know if they still test for this and if its an auto DQ?
From Dr. Orsak's lips (or fingertips rather)I would imagine you are DQ'ed. If it's a requirement, and you don't make it, why would you pass? Or rather, if you are not DQ'ed if you fail the test, what's the point of the test?
There are waivers for everything, but that one wouldn't make sense. Then again, it is the FAA, and common sense will not be tolerated...
No problem!...I doubt you're a dumbass...your line of thinking was pretty logical...I think depth perception is a bigger issue if you are trying to become a pilot.Thank you for the correction. Perhaps I was confusing FAA standards with the Air Force's. Or perhaps I'm just a dumbass... haha
