I have otosclerosis in both middle ears and cochleas. I get vertigo easily. I have an FAA waiver for my hearing. I was still able to pull myself together and get out of a dual instructional 'graveyard spiral' under the hood before breaking the hard deck while suffering a severe case of vertigo from that blasted old fashioned 'clamps on your head too tight' welding shield type hood. I am also rated for aerobatics in the Aerobat. I climb a lot of tall trees and stay up in them for hours shooting birds. I'm also a certified commercial diver, have 11 parachute jumps in military T-36 both static line and free fall, and did the climb and rappel testing with SAR.Originally Posted by johnnywalker
So I wouldn't be TOO sure about that theory.
But then, I haven't done the tightrope across Niagara yet either.
