Hi--before I answer can you tell me more about the condition--is it stable and being treated for example?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes it is being treated with a view to surgery but no date has been set

OK Margaret--you should of course cross check this with your doctor but there should be no problem with flying when someone has aortic stenosis that's being treated
