Leo Brogan – Life As A Pilot
I lost my left eye due to an industrial accident in 1968. At the time I was involved in sport parachuting/skydiving.
I commenced parachuting again within a month of leaving hospital, still with the hospital dressing on my eye.
A prosthetic eye was made and this has been satisfactory.
I gained a private pilot licence in 1970 and a commercial pilot licence in 1992, followed by an instrument rating in 1993.
I then flew aircraft on charter until 2006 when I retired from commercial flying. I now run my own business at Gisborne in Victoria.
Life can go on normally after losing an eye if you decide not to be an invalid !!
