If you know anyone interested in a flying career that has been discouraged by a color vision issue, you should definitely tell them about the Colour Vision Defective Pilots Association (www.cvdpa.com).

Right now the battle is in Australia, but the worldwide Aviation Authorities are definitely watching. They paved the way for legal use of Anti-Depressants which would have been unthinkable even 5 years ago..

Some have great, some have OK, some have worse, some none at all. Check out the site for more information if interested.
