If you are a safe and responsible aviator, you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your hard-earned pilot’s license! The only thing you will ever have to worry about is keeping current.

Keeping current simply means that you are keeping track of and completing specific requirements to prevent your skills from getting rusty. Think of “keeping current” as the requirements to maintain a private pilot’s license. -SingleEnginePilot.com

A commercial pilot license (CPL), is a type of pilot license that permits the holder to act as a pilot of an aircraft and be paid for his/her work.

Can diabetics get a pilot license?

The USA offers pilots with diabetes full private pilot privileges. Applicants must pass a Class 3 medical test and supply additional medical records and tests to demonstrate good overall diabetes control. The Class 3 medical is valid only within the US borders and holders must obtain three-monthly check ups to confirm continued good diabetes control and submit on an annual basis to validate the Class 3 Medical.

The Class 3 medical certificate allows solo flying for training and full privileges of a Private Pilot Certificate. To ensure safe flight, the pilot must adhere to pre-flight and in-flight blood sugar testing requirements that include a test half an hour prior to flying, each hour into a flight, and half an hour prior to landing. A pilot with Type 1 Diabetes must keep sugar levels within 100 – 300 mg/dl (5.5 – 16.6 mmol//l). If above 300 pilots must land and bring sugars back within range before flying again. If below 100, pilots must ingest 20 g of readily absorbable carbohydrate (e.g. sweet drink/soda, candy). -Pilotswithdiabetes.com
