Pilots with a National Private Pilot Licence (NPPL) or a UK Private Pilot Licence (PPL) can now self-declare their medical status on the CAA website

It is hoped that these pilots will be able to save time and money by using this process, as it will no longer be necessary to involve a GP or Authorised Medical Examiner in most cases. The new self-declaration also applies to pilots with a UK Commercial Pilot Licence (Balloons).

The change was included in the new Air Navigation Order which came into force on 25 August, and follows a public consultation. Pilots must meet the standard for the DVLA Group 1 Ordinary Driving Licence and not suffer from any of a list of disqualifying medical conditions.

More information and the form can be found on the CAA website.

Pilots up to the age of 70 can self-declare once, while anyone over 70 must confirm their fitness to fly every three years.
