...well enought to revoke my medical certificate.
This is probably not what you want to hear. I think it is the truth of the situation.
After reflection and soul searching, I might tend to agree with them. I thought of this conversation I was going to have with the flight controllers one day: "I'm gonna be a little busy for the next few minutes....(Autopilot engaged)....please vector traffic away from my position.....I'll explain later.....Cancel IFR, will proceed on visual (now how the shit am I gonna do that?)....." No, that was not going to be a fun conversation.
As a passenger, I have certain expectations of the flight crew, all of them -- cockpit and cabin. CH does represent a serious POTENTIAL safety issue in the air. From the flight surgeon's viewpoint, I would put CH in the same category as epilipsy ceisures. The problem with CH is that you just don't know when they're gonna hit. Pretty risky, I'd say.
