Bypass surgery vs Npl or Gpl

Unread post by ASH26V » Wed Apr 07, 2021 7:25 am

Good morning guys.
I have spoken to a few mates who have told me that after my Bypass surgery flying will become very expensive due to medicals.
How costly will it be should I decide to rather fly microlights or gliders? It's really just a hobby....but forking out 40-60k a year for medicals really make it impossible

Hi Kobus,

Hoop dit gaan goed na jou omleiding. Praat met Dr Beukes hier in Ladysmith. Hy doen al my studente se vlieg medies en is ‘n senior AME. Hy sal presies weet wat jy nodig gaan hê voordat jy beplan om te begin leer vlieg. Hy ken die presiese vereistes vir klas 1-4 medies.

Jy kan ook oom Paul Coetzer daar in Dundee vra. Terwyl ek hom leer vlieg het moes hy ‘n omleiding kry en moes hy vir 6 maande ophou vlieg en verskeie toetse doen om weer sy medies terug te kry. Dit het ook tyd gevat voordat die mediese paneel hom weer goedgekeur het.
