Im nearly positive it has to be an irish medical if you want to get your ppl in ireland. I also enquired about it they will only accept irish medicals. I think this will change next year and medicals will be internationaly recognised under EASA.JFH wrote:You can get a JAA class 1 or 2 medical in any EU/JAA country and you can do your PPL in Ireland still.Mick10rt wrote:Hi all,
I'm new to this forum and I was hoping for some advice.
I've been told by the Aero Medical Team at gatwick to book an initial JAA Class 1 medical examination. My story is that I have previously failed the IAA eyesight test due to a muscle imbalance. Having sent various reports to the team in Gatwick, they are happy to accept my eyesight as acceptable for JAA class 1 or 2.
Anyone know of the waiting times for Claas 1?
Will a CAA JAA Class 1 inhibit me from doing a PPL here in Ireland and if so, is a CAA JAA class 1 accepted in the U.S for a PPL?
Any help appreciated.
So, if you get a UK CAA JAA Class medical, you wont have any problem doing your PPL in Ireland under the IAA or doing it in the U.S if its a JAA PPL course.
You wont have to wait long to get the medical back. I actually know people who have failed the IAA and CAA medical before and got the medical back again from the Greek CAA!! One of these guys I knew was Diabetic, hence the CAA took the medical off him, but he still flys a european jet aircraft as a skipper thanks to the easy going doctors in eastern europe!
Thanks for your reply. To be on the safe side i'm going to check with the CAA that the new EASA rules don't effect me.neilr wrote:Hi guys ... Read the previous posts
For license issue there can and are restrictions in terms of where you do the INITIAL medical and training for license issue (doesn't matter about training for ratings)
If you want to do your PPL in Ireland then do your medical here - however it sounds like you can't - so do it in Gatwick then ppl in UK or CAA affiliated school elsewhere such as US
With EASA expected to take over in April there are some changes to medical - it might be worth confirming with CAA if the introduction of EASA will affect your chance of a medical - class 1 or 2. The reason I bring this up is that it recently happened to somebody I know - he was advised by the CAA to ensure he had his PPL in place before April. There were a few other conditions as well but this was the main one - this may not be an issue in your case but perhaps worth checking ????
