The EASA regulations for pilot licensing and medical have been introduced in the UK. A
quick guide is available which includes guidance on which medical certificate is required for each licence. Applicants are advised to read this carefully to decide which licence they require and therefore which medical certificate to apply for. Please note that only one EU medical certificate may be held at any one time.
Where a GP is unable to complete an assessment or the fitness decision has to be made by an AME, the GP should provide relevant information for the applicant to take to the AME for assessment. Most applicants who do not meet the DVLA Group 2 medical standards should normally be referred to an AME for assessment. Those only meeting the car driving (DVLA Group 1) standard may be assessed by an AME for restricted certification. A referral form is available.
The results of assessments are submitted to the CAA by completing an online form.
Please ensure you read the instructions for completing the Online form prior to submission. If the form is completed incorrectly this will produce a certificate with incorrect validity dates.
The browser Chrome includes a plug-in for viewing PDF files, this is designed to give you faster browsing to this type of file.
Unfortunately, the Chrome plug-in is basic and lacks many useful features like pagination and bookmarks. It also prevents the CAA PDF form being 'submitted' on-line.
To overcome this problem in Chrome, it is possible to turn the plug-in off and use the standard Acrobat reader software to complete and submit the CAA on-line forms.
To do this, you need to have your Chrome browser open and type chrome://plugins/ into your address bar, when this has opened up options you will be able to turn off the Chrome PDF plug-in.
When you have done this you will be able to submit the PDF form.
If you experience a change in your health status you must cease flying immediately, refer to the guidance on your medical certificate and seek the advice of your AME or your GP if he/she issued your last medical certificate.
The UK CAA has developed a procedure for returning to flying.
