Depends on the airline(major or regional?), and what's the special issuance for. Some majors will be a huge if.

Some pilots at the majors have apnea. They talk about a machine that they carry to the overnights.

I don't have a correct or official answer, just giving my opinion:

As far as I am aware, if you have a 1st Class Medical, regardless of special issuance, you would be qualified. Basically, as long as you can perform the dutys and functions that would be required of you.

The FAA feels you are ok to operate as PIC of a turbojet aircraft during 121 operations (based on the fact that you have been issued a 1st Class Medical). I would think that an airline not hiring you based on your "condition" would violate that equal-opportunity disclaimer that everyone has on their job applications.

JMHO, YMMV.

I would imagine it is common with age. That was the answer I was looking for. I'm not sure why they wouldn't hire someone with it.

Thanks
