EU exit

Please note that, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the UK’s departure from the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:Minimum Colour Vision Requirements for Professional Flight Crew. Recommendations for new colour vision standards.
Description:This study investigated new methods for the accurate assessment of colour vision in order to provide improved guidelines for minimum colour vision requirements for flight crew that are both safe and fair to applicants. The innovative Colour Assessment and Diagnosis (CAD) test employed establishes whether an applicant has colour vision within the normal range, identifies the class and severity of any colour vision deficiency and indicates whether an applicant's colour vision meets the minimum requirements for flight safety. It may also have important implications for other modes of transport where colour vision is safety critical and for use in public health.
