Last week, AVweb asked which health factors were most important to our readers, specifically with regard to keeping their medical certificates.

Not surprisingly, the two most popular responses were vision and heart condition. 43% of the pilots who responded to our question are most concerned about their eyes, while another 41% worry about losing certification because their hearts.

A much smaller slice of our readership (only 12% of those who responded) worry about losing their medical over brain-related conditions such as poor memory or cognitive impairments.

The remaining 4% of respondents were most concerned about their hearing and/or muscle control.


Flying VFR vs. flying IFR this week, AVweb wants to know (if you had to pick), which method you'd choose.
