Pilot eye vision requirement


Reaction score
Hi guys,
I just finished the aptitude test yesterday and qualified to be a pilot based on the score. but I do wear glasses, short vision, roughly 20/120.
is that ok to apply for being a pilot? maybe not qualified to be a pilot for fighter jets, but not sure if helicopters and transport jets are ok.
thank you guys in advance!
Pilots all have the same vision requirements. Pilots require V2, which is up to 6/18 in either eye, or up to 6/12 in one and 6/30 in the other, but you must be correctable to 6/6 in one eye. The other cannot be worse than 6/9. The CAF uses metric for visual acuity, whereas your 20/120 reference is feet.
