How can I be an airline pilot if I have a learning disability and am bad at math?

Answer by Thomas Zerbarini:

First, I suggest consulting at least two FAA Aeromedical Doctors and get your First Class Student Pilot Medical Certificate and talk to him/her about your concerns.

Second, enroll in a private pilot ground school either locally at the airport or via the internet. Then take the Private Pilot Written Test. if you do well, continue and enroll in the Instrument Rating Ground School and take that test. Keep going with all the written exams and see how you do:

Private Pilot
Instrument Rating
Commercial Pilot
Advanced Ground Instructor
Instrument Ground Instructor
Principles of Instructing
Flight Engineer Written Turbojet
Airline Transport Pilot

At some point in the middle of all these ground schools and exams you'll get an idea if you're capable or not. If you're comfortable then start taking flying lessons.

You'll never know unless you try. You may stumble along from time to time too, just keep at it and don't quit too quickly, you may be pleasantly surprised that you can do it.
