not 100% sure if that would disqualify you but it would make since as you may need full range emotion for your arm.

First class medical certificate requirements include checks of eyesight, ears, psychical examination , electrocardiogram (ECG), lung function, cholesterol blood, hemoglobin blood, chest X-ray, urine, period of validity

Best piece of advice I could personally give is to read what your national CAA says and, if you require further clarification, contact a local Aviation Medical Examiner.

At the end of the day, they’re the ones who know what is acceptable and what isn’t so they will the ones to give the best advice regarding your personal condition.

All the best!


Thanks so much for the help
