Hearing loss and ADHD

New Arrival

I am a 16 year old who has a firey passion for flying. Unfortunately I have some unilateral hearing loss and adhd. I believe that I can meet standards for medical requirements to fly commercial flights like southwest. Dose anyone at Southwest know if it is possible for me to do so?

Take a look at the FAA minimum health requirements and see if you qualify. I'm not sure if Southwest's requirements are more strict, but it's a good place to start. Remember, there are a lot of great opportunities in the aviation industry other than being a pilot if flying the plane isn't an option for you. Good luck!
