FAA Regulations
Mar 31, 2004

What legal barriers may I face regarding my HIV status and becoming a commercial pilot. What federal regulations, if any will prohibit or limit my goal as a pilot.

Response from Ms. Breuer

As far as I know, the feds (FAA) do not have a clear ruling on this, but individual airlines/carriers set their own standards. I encourage you to contact a few commercial carriers, or ask someone you know who already works for one, to learn whether there is a specific policy on pilots and HIV. If our readers include anyone who knows more about this topic, I'd be grateful for more information.

do hiv tests prevent you getting life insurance?
