COVID-19 Temporary Clinic Closure
In the light of the escalating COVID-19 crisis, we have taken the decision to temporarily close the AME clinic for the safety of all parties and the wider community.
However, please find below a link to a document from the UK CAA allowing for extension of the validity of class 1 and 3 medical certificates and cabin crew medical reports to 22nd November 2020 under specific circumstances.
The key issues are as follows:
1) To take advantage of the exemption, the medical certificates must have been valid on the 23rd March 2020 and not beyond 31st October 2020.
Therefore, certificate holders who expired before this date without revalidating their certificate cannot use this exemption and must have a renewal medical to exercise licence privilege.
2) The exemption ends on 22nd November 2020 and therefore no certificate validities can be extended beyond this date.
Therefore, certificate holders who use this exemption must have a renewal medical before 22nd November 2020 to exercise licence privileges after 22nd November 2020.
3) Certificate holders with medical conditions should still comply with the requirements for provision of medical reports that support their medical fitness.
4) For certificate holders who experience difficulties in provision of reports, AMEs can extend the requirement date for up to 3 months. Further extensions may be granted by the CAA.
We plan to re-open the AME clinic again as soon as possible once we believe it is safe to do so, and we will keep our website updated to reflect the current position.
