I am looking for imput on the FAA's new "opperational color vision test" that is required for the first and second class medicals when you are not able to pass the color card test at the AME office. This has all changed since 2008 and has become much more involved. I am quite confident that I could pass the test as it is intended to be given. I can identify all the runway lights, light gun signals and identify terrain features which is what the test is for. My problem is the FAA guy who will be sitting next to me and how they would interperet my answers. To top it all off our FSDO has gained a poor reputation as of lately for grounding perfectly legal planes and pilots for flimsy and later disproven assumptions regarding airworthiness and pilot ability/knowlege. I am not nessiscarily looking to start a big anti FAA post just looking for anyone who has had experience with this issue lately.
