Not sure there is a restriction - ear drum was perfed so no build up of pressure. As long as ear drum has healed there should be no problem. It takes about 6weeks for an eardrum to heal - has anybody checked?

Should be fine - was never advised not to fly for a period for either of ours although obviously not immediately
