Changes to CAA Telephone Medical Advisory Service

6-Oct-2014

In accordance with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Regulations medical certificate applicants and holders are obliged to seek aeromedical advice from an Aero Medical Examiner (AME) or Aeromedical Centre (AeMC) in the event of a decrease in medical fitness. The CAA’s Authority Medical Section (AMS) aeromedical advisory service will no longer be accessible to medical certificate applicants and holders from 6 October 2014. AMEs and AeMCs will continue to have access to the AMS aeromedical advisory service. General Medical Practitioners (GMPs) and Occupational Health Medical Practitioners (OHMPs) will be unaffected as they will continue to contact an AME for aeromedical advice when necessary.

LBA unable to transfer pilot medical records from Germany to other States...

25-Feb-2014

The UK CAA has been advised by the German Authority (LBA) that, due to German national law concerning Data Protection, the LBA are unable to facilitate the transfer of pilot medical records from Germany to other States.

It is therefore not possible to proceed with transfers of State of Licence Issue from Germany (LBA) to the UK (UK CAA), or indeed any other state, as the whole certificatory medical record of pilots must be held by the state to which a licence is transferred.

Please note that German pilots’ licences are fully valid in all EASA member states.
