"This is a life-changing event," said John. "I don't think about my hearing now when I decide to do something."

Retired pilot soars again with Esteem®

John had the dream of flying ever since he was young. After 20 years of being a commercial pilot, a flight manager flying with him noticed he was having hearing issues and told him to see the company doctor.  Realizing a hearing aid wasn’t going to help, he retired that day. 

“I pretty well thought that I was going to be done flying aircraft in any sort of a controlled environment where you had to talk to controllers - - Well I’d resigned myself to the fact that that’s what I was going to do - then along came Esteem”.
