Another CAD failure and yet..good news from our website

Yesterday I was looking for help for my color vision problems and ended up finding this site. I was very surprised by your statement, since you say that you have the Brazilian license and without restriction. I live in London and I failed the CAD, and now I was thinking in running a pilot course in Brazil but was unsure of how to process the medical examination, and especially the color one. I am not doubting you, but if the test in Brazil continues this way what you said, I also get the chance to have my license issued by ANAC (Brazilian Authority) and without restriction. and like you, I want to go back to Brazil and act in the field of aviation in the country since I am Brazilian and my family is all there. I would not mind to stick around in Europe and get a job as a pilot, but since I am restricted to fly in the skies of Europe, I might perform this function on the land of my birth. Could you give me more information on how it is in Brazil, since I have no one to turn to because I don't know people who have taken the test there. a hug and good luck to you and all colorblind

Hi Alexsandro, yes, In Brazil it's very easy to pass. If you can see the red/green/yello w lights from the traffic lights as well as a normal brown, black, pink, white you're good to go since they show you color papers with main solid colors if you don't pass Ishihara. Shameful because that's what you should need to fly safely, to see the basic colors and not to have to pass some hard core exams made to prove only that you have daltonism but not to make sure if you're good to fly or not.. I haven't seen any pilots crashing in Brazil due to Daltonism..
