    You should get the form emailed back to you with a CAA reference number filled in. Mine arrived almost instantly - maybe it takes longer when submitted on a weekend?

    I believe that it is an automated process so time of day and weekends should make no difference. Email response should be received almost instantly. Note that you must use Internet Explorer to complete the form as stated in the instructions or it won't work.

    Just to reinforce Glyn's post... I recently "completed" the form with Google Chrome.... appeared to be sent ok.... no response.. tried again using Microshite Edge.. same thing... looked as if it was sent ok... no response... finally used I.Explorer and got an "instant" response... all on the same computer and ips..

    Somewhere between 10% and 20% of desktops depending on who you believe.

    Guess that figures... the CAA in their infinite wisdom have designed application forms which "cannot easily" be submitted by 80% to 90% of the population:-)

    Tbere are other (lazy) firms. Anyone who uses Lloydslink will have to use internet explorer And probably even an old version as Lloyds can't be bothered to test it with other popular browsers. However that does provide opportunities for others, and Browserstack lets you run internet explorer within a Google Chrome window. It used to be free for your average punter but they need to make money so now you need a subscription I think. It's a godsend for me as I was having to run microsoft windows alongside my Apple operating system on my macbook air. This was taking up tons of space. Bowserstack let me stick with purely Apple stuff (but they are just as annoying)

    Hi all I'm hoping you can help or point me in the right direction. I seem to be hopelessly going round in circles. I read up and spoke to AME and everything suggested that as a Type1 (insulin dependent) Diabetic that wishes to fly microlights on an NPPL (no greater than 2000KG MTOM) self declaration was fine and a LAPL Class 2 was not required. I have read the guidlines on the self declaration and submitted it.

    It is only upon doing so that I stumble upon a document, date Jan 2015, saying that diabetics need a DVLA group 2 license to fly with passengers. Now I'm panicking that I've apparently 'lied' on my form and also that I'm not going to be able to carry passengers once I pass. I'm a little bit frustrated with it all to be honest.

    Can anyone enlighten me with regards to microlight flying with diabetes please? Or does anyone have a contact number where I can call for advice?

    EDIT: Possibly good news. The pilotswithdiabetes site is obviously painfully outdated now. I've just found a whole 'by condition' section on the CAA site, and have found v5 (2018) of Diabetes Certification Guidance PDF, here: https://www.caa.co.uk/uploadedFiles/...20Material.pdf

    From this, section 6:

    If in doubt, go to the BMAA. That's what they're there for. https://www.bmaa.org/information-library/contact-us

    I haven't time this morning to double check, but as I recall it your declaration translates into everyday English as 'you don't have any condition which would prevent you getting a group 2 DVLA licence if you were to apply for one'. You don't have to actually hold such a licence to make the declaration.
