Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to read this post. I reported down to Pensacola with a SNA slot but was recently NPQ'ed at my initial NAMI physical for some eye condition I had never heard of and that is not wavierable (esophoria). I even went to a civilian doc for a second opinion (which found me within standards) and used to proper channels to get a re-test from NAMI. However, just like the first, I was found out of standards. Fortunately I was still qualified as an NFO and got my FO up chit. I am currently in the process of switching my designator to SNFO which they tell me should be no problem. My question is geared towards anyone who had a similar situation in which they wanted to be a pilot but got NPQ'ed and switched to NFO. My whole life I've wanted to be a pilot and many decisions I made in my life were made with that goal in mind. Needless to say, it came as a big blow when the doc told me I was NPQ when I was so close. I have read enough threads to know some will give me shit for saying this but I have some doubts about becoming an NFO. Sometimes the thought of having to sit behind and watch someone do a job that I've always dreamed of sounds terrible. It's not that I think an NFO's job is any less cool or important, I just don't want to be bitter my whole career in naval aviation, and I'm sure no body wants to work with someone like that. I know the disappointment is still fresh and that has alot to do with my apprehension about NFO, but I was hoping there were some FO's on here that could give me some advice or insight that might have once had similar feelings. Thanks in advance for responses and I apologize if there is a similar thread already out there that could have answered my question.
