Medical Declaration

Medical Declaration

Changes to the Pilot Medical Declaration requirements.

Following a joint CAA and Industry review of the requirements for the recently introduced Pilot Medical Declaration for use with national licences, the guidance material and declaration form have been amended to reflect the recognition of the differences in risk potential posed by lighter and heavier aircraft.

For pilots flying aircraft up to 2,000 kgs the standard required is the same as the DVLA Ordinary Driving Licence (ODL) with the addition of a consideration for individuals suffering from psychiatric disorders. This provision was widely supported in the initial consultation on the proposal.

For pilots flying aircraft above 2,000 kgs and up to 5,700 kgs further health considerations are applied to the DVLA ODL standard. These considerations are noted on the declaration form which is published on the CAA web site.
