Exam Techniques and Criteria for Qualification
Items 25-30. Ear, Nose, and Throat - Bilateral Deafness

It is possible for a totally deaf person to qualify for a private pilot certificate. When such an applicant initially applies for medical certification, if otherwise qualified, the AMCD may issue a combination medical/student pilot certificate with the limitation ďValid for Student Pilot Purposes Only.Ē This will allow the student to practice with an instructor before undergoing a pilot check ride for the private pilotís license.

When the applicant is ready to take the check ride, he/she must contact AMCD or the RFS for authorization to take a medical flight test (MFT). Upon successful completion of the MFT, the applicant will be issued a SODA, and an operational restriction will be placed on his/her pilotís license that restricts the pilot from flying into airspace requiring radio communication.
