Brexit and Aviation
As we have now left Europe, this has consequences for the aviation industry and in particular medicals. I am no linger an EASA AME and therefore am unable to undertake any medicals of pilots from Europe.
Some doctors are trying to become dual registered, but it is proving difficult at the moment.
Medicals of pilots whose SOLI is outside the UK (and in Europe), will either have to find a dual registered AME or obtain a medical in a European country. Some of my AME colleagues have, or are in the process of getting EASA approval. I will not be doing so, but the following local colleagues do undertake them:
Dr Jim Loose: For appointments contact Secretary directly at:
firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 01482 826457 Ext 204
Dr Loose Mobile: 07770 740768, email email@example.com

Dr Mushkoor Sheikh:, Text enquiries to: 0781 0550 417
Re: UK LAPL's. All EASA LAPL's have now become UK LAPL's. At the moment, this means that pilots using LAPL medicals are unable to fly abroad, and will need to convert back to Class 2 (if their health allows - remember, this medical is assessed at a higher level than the LAPL)
Important to all pilots
Cellma is the new CAA computer system. It will create a portal that pilots, AME, Instructors etc. will go into to manage all pilots flying needs.
You will be required to create a username and password to access, and then apply to CAA for access.
For your medical:
You will need to do the above. The once you have approval (allow 10days), you go in an apply for your medical. This will involve filling in your Med 160 application form online, AND pay the CAA their administration fee (£14 Class 1 and £8 Class 2). LAPL's are free.
ONLY then, can you apply to an AME to undertake your medical. If you arrive having not undertaken these steps - YOU WILL NOT GET A MEDICAL. I will have no access to your records.
Details are on the CAA website: https://www.caa.co.uk/medical/
Also please look at this: Click here.
Did you know that for certain medicals you can have you medicals done early, before the expiry date, and still keep the same expiry date. Meaning no rush to get medicals in near the expiry date.
For HSE Commercial divers: You can have you medical up to 28 days early and still keep the same expiry date.
For CAA Aviation medicals: You can have you medical up to 45 days early and still keep the same expiry date.
Pilots Submitting Reports
Commonly, you will need to submit Medical Reports about any conditions you have in a format acceptable to the CAA. This need to be in a scanned, PDF format. (not work or any other variant).
Reports submitted in a format unacceptable to the CAA will be rejected and unfortunately, rejected reports will often return to the ‘back of the queue’ causing significant delays in considering your case.
It is vital that the content and quality of submitted reports is adequate to avoid these delays (and the additional work caused to all involved).
Emailing me photos of crumpled, barely legible bits of paper is not acceptable, as is text messages with photos of documents.
I qualified at St.Bartholomews hospital in 1983.
Following my VTS training in North Wales I have been a GP in East Yorkshire since apart from a short time out when I helped set up the Midlands Diving Chamber in Rugby
I am currently Occupational Health Physician in Immingham docks and a part time locum GP. We live in Cranswick in East Yorkshire with my wife, her daughter and our dog Rufus.
My main hobbies include Sport Diving, which I have been participating in since 1982, endurance cycling and Flying from Full Sutton Airfield.
I am a member of BSAC Hull 14 (website here) and am an Advanced Instructor and Trimix trained. My main diving interests are photography, particularly in the challenging waters of the North Sea.
As a PPL holder, I fly from Full Sutton (website here) and have a share in G-BATV a PA 28. My furthest trips have been to France and Ireland. I have a Night Rating and IMC.
My other passions are a BMW 1200RT Sports tourer and a Specialised Roubraix Road bike.
After my last bike had a problem I have now upgraded to a newer BMW 1200RT. Now has cruise control - amazing relief on the right hand on long trips.
My next Charity Challenge (to be undertaken with my wife), is to explore the delights of MyanMar (Burma) October 2018.
