The UK’s priority is to ensure aviation safety is upheld while also reducing any additional burdens on Aero-medical Examiners and GPs during this period.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has already granted an exemption to holders of a Part-MED Class 1 medical certificate that expires before 31st October 2020. Holders of such a medical certificate will continue to have their medicals validated until 22nd November 2020.
We anticipate those affected by the deadline to be minimal as a routine revalidation for Class 1 and 2 medical certificates only applies where certificates have been expired for less than two years.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and make any appropriate changes necessary.
