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 <rkaplan@pennet.com>; 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.
