Illness pick-a-path

Today is a really important day. Today you are doing your CPL flight test. You have worked at this for a long time and everything is going well. The weather forecast is fine, the aircraft is serviceable, and the examiner is booked. There is only one small problem – you have a cold.

You felt the tickle in the back of your throat last night and brushed it off, but when you woke this morning it had gotten a bit worse; your nose is running and your throat is a bit sore.

Do you cancel the flight test or take some over the counter medication to keep you going?
