Yes, as long as you mean dual with an instructor.

Presumably holding a Class II implies you have an EASA PPL. If you PMD you will only be a ble to fly non-EASA on a UK Licence.

To continue to fly EASA on a PMD you will need to get an LAPL (until 8th Apr 20 unless revoked or extended) otherwise you will have to get a ClassII or continue P/uT.

So if no LAPL be careful if you PMD..

As the ability to fly easa ppl, sep and lapl medical (combination currently banned) will/should become legal before the 7th anniversary of it being banned, (September 17th), there will be a few pilots who have class 2s expiring around now considering a short time on pmd because as soon as fcl changes they will be legal on their EASA medicals which will have downgraded themselves to lapl medicals.

I have always "assumed" (that can some time bite you in the **rse) that when written as "PPL (A) that meant a UK CAAlifetime licence which a lot of PPL's wont have obtained.

One can only hold one medical at a time, so the endorsed class II would be cancelled (there may be better terminology) by the act of making a PMD.

Whether or not the pilot in question can make a PMD is dependent on being able to honestly answer the questions in light of the reason for the original endorsement. If so, then no reason not to solo.

Well I haven't read the actual conditions you are presented with for applying for a pmd or (read recently) the caa exemption that brought it in for non-easa aircraft in the 2016, but as far as i am aware, people who cannot get ANY sort of class 2 are flying on pmd... can others here who have applied confirm?
@Tall_Guy_In_a_PA28 pmd is not a medical certificate, it doesn't cancel anything

Which is why I was careful to say "making a PMD" rather than anything being issued.


I thought I read here on the forum that the CAA 'system' does not allow the holding of a medical and a PMD simultaneously?
