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.
