    I think it is an online form. They are finalising the IT.

    When do the new NPPL medical requirements come into force.

    Hi Geoff

    I posted a question on the BMAA web contact form but so far no response. Just wondering if my recently renewed group 1 medical, countersigned by GP, will cover me to carry a passenger from 25th August. I don't see anything in the ANO to preclude this but would appreciate a second opinion.

    Regards
    Alwyn

    I've been of sick this week so chances are the question is waiting for me to get back.
    Off the top of my head I think you might have to get a new declaration to remove the restriction, but until the full details are published it's all only guesswork.

    This stipulation obviously couldn't be applied to people who don't have a current declaration, either new pilots or those whose old declarations have expired by the time they complete the online form

    If you read all the detail, you will see that it may be MORE difficult to be able to fly if you have had medical problems. OK for those with no medical history, they save money and dont have to get their GP to countersign, but a lot of others seem to need an AME report that will cost more than a GP and take time.

    I note on my latest insurance proposal/renewal for the Minicab (GA), it requires me to ensure none of the proposed pilots have a condition that would preclude a Class II medical. Now there's a 'get-out'...

    The form's up again (see the BMAA News item)

    Direct link here

    If you use a Mac, you'll probably suffer from "disappearing pdf form" syndrome. Fill the pdf out, select print, save as pdf and then send the resulting pdf off to the people who have decided that Internet Explorer is a good thing.
