Hello folks.....remember this old thread?
Well, I finally got a reply from the CAA about the fact that their web site hadn't been updated to include an option for holders of an EASA PPL or LAPL when wanting to self-declare for medical purposes.
It only too them 4 months, but here is the reply:Good morning,
Thank you for your email. At the outset, please accept my apologies for the unintentional delay in our response; I can assure you that there was no discourtesy intended on our part.
Unfortunately, the self declaration medical form has not yet been updated to reflect the new changes introduced. As a temporary interim measure we advise you select a different option in order to allow the form to complete. It is clear from your records that we hold for you that you would by flying a PPL.
We are not currently able to advise if this is likely to be extended as we have not yet been advised of an extension from our policy department.
(the first paragraph was in a different font, so I'm guessing it had been copied and pasted into a lot of emails).
Anyhow, the bottom line is that you can self declare with an EASA PPL or LAPL now.
Yes, this is what several people said all along.........but at least I have it in writing now.
Just a pity it wasn't before I renewed my medical
I hope they do extend it.
