Hello all! I thought I would go ahead and create a new thread for those unfortunate few who struggle with those dreaded PIP Plates. Back in the day, the FALANT was an authorized alternative for candidates who failed the PIP. Most updated version of the NAMI Waiver Guide below All color vision tests will be administered as delineated in the NAMI Aeromedical Reference and Waiver Guide, Chapter 12.2. The Farnsworth Lantern (FALANT) was discontinued 31 Dec 2016. The FALANT or Optec 900 may be considered for selective aviators who were designated before 31 December 2016. Passing scores: 9/9 correct on the first trial or, if any are missed, at least 16/18 correct on the combined score of the second and third trials.) Current Color Vision Tests from NAMI Color Vision: Must pass any one of the following two tests: 1. PIP color plates (Any red-green screening test with at least 14 diagnostic plates; see manufacturer instructions for scoring information) randomly administered under Macbeth lamp: scoring plates 2-15, at least 12/14 correct. 2. Computer-Based Color Vision Testing: must achieve a passing grade on an approved and validated Computer-Based Color Vision Test. Specifics regarding the Computer-Based Vision Test Computerized Tests (validated and approved): a. ColorDX (Waggoner): A score of “normal” or “mild” color vision deficiency in red, green or blue is acceptable for aviation. Tested binocularly (both eyes open). May test monocularly for isolating and tracking acquired color vision defects. b. Colour Assessment & Diagnosis (CAD, City University London): A score of less than or equal to 6 CAD units for all three cone types in each eye. Tested binocularly (both eyes at the same time). c. Cone Contrast Test (CCT, Rabin): A score of 55 or greater in each eye is required for all three cone types. This test is given monocularly (one eye at a time). d. Computer tests shall be administered per manufacturer recommendations with regard to distance, lighting, screen calibration, and monocular or binocular testing. Best correction worn. Computerized tests must be utilized per manufacturer’s instructions; such as administration processes and calibration, room lighting, and screen brightness. Computer-printout grade sheets should be submitted with the physical exam, to ensure objectivity and correctness.
