Q18: I have a physical disability and would like to learn to fly. How? A: There are pilots in all kinds of aircraft flying all over the world with some kind of disability, including amputees, paraplegics, etc. If you have a condition which might preclude you from getting a medical certificate, contact the medical services department of AOPA (see below). They will be glad to assist you, whether or not you are a member. We also are fortunate to have an expert in our midst on the net, Dr. Richard Kaplan, M.D., CFI, AME. Please contact him with your questions directly at <firstname.lastname@example.org>; he's also offered to provide flight physicals and flight instruction (you provide the airplane) to disabled netters at no charge. He's located ~50nm SE of Pittsburgh PA.
