With effect from 1 July 2012 EASA rules will apply. All medical casework for pilots with or new medical conditions will now be carried out by your AME and not in the first instance by the CAA.
The majority of pilots will not require this service but if you do then casework will be charged on a time basis. The implications will be clearly discussed at the time of the medical.
Note only the following medical categories applicable after 01/07/12 will be: “Fit” “Unfit” and “Referred” the old term “Temporarily Unfit” will no longer be used.
