Australian Regulator Aiming for Better Colorblind Testing

Testing Changes Floated to Decide Path Forward The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority is inviting feedback on a proposal that “seeks to formalise 2 testing options for colour vision deficient pilots who are not able to pass currently prescribed clinical colour vision tests through a legislative instrument.” The proposed tests are the Australian Operational Colour Vision Assessment (AOCVA) and the Colour Assessment and Diagnostic (CAD) test. Those who pass either one of them will be deemed fit to hold a Class 1 or Class 2 medical for color vision and be issued a certificate without any vision restrictions or endorsements.
