Faa and Cancer


New Member
Found out I had something called Hairy Cell Leukemia. Any idea after chemo the Faa will let me go back to flying?

Yes they will. They have some criteria you must follow but you should be able to get a medical back when therapy is completed. The time-line depends a bit on the therapy and the follow-up evaluation by the oncologist. Let us know how it goes and call if you have questions.
