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.
