Jersey AME - Dr James Mair, Aviation Medical Examiner, Jersey, C.I
COVID Information: Updated 20/06/2020
PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR CURRENT EXEMPTIONS:
I NOW HAVE PERMISSION FROM THE CAA TO BEGIN TO RESUME MEDICALS. ALL MEDICALS ARE AT RED HOUSES AS USUAL.
CURRENT EXEMPTIONS STILL APPLY SO YOU MAY WISH TO DEFER YOUR MEDICAL UNTIL NEARER THOSE DEADLINES
Please only attend for a medical if you have no symptoms of COVID. If in doubt please contact me beforehand. Usual clinical hygiene at the surgery is in use.
CLASS 1&3 CAA:
I have received guidance from the CAA regarding certification during the COVID-19 Outbreak
The CAA issued ORS4 1354 containing exemption 5026 (http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/docs/33/ORS4No1354.pdf) that includes measures relating to Class 1 and 3 medical certificate holders together with cabin crew medical report holders.
There are a number of key issues which are highlighted and expanded upon in the attached guidance for AMEs.
• To take advantage of the exemption, the medical certificates or cabin crew medical reports must have been valid on the 23rd March 2020 and not beyond 31st October 2020.
o So certificate holders who expired before this date without revalidating their certificate cannot use this exemption and must have a renewal medical to exercise licence privileges
• The exemption ends on 22nd November 2020 and therefore no certificate validities can be extended beyond this date.
o So certificate holders who use this exemption must have a renewal medical before 22nd November 2020 to exercise licence privileges after 22nd November 2020
• Certificate holders with medical conditions should still comply with the requirements for provision of medical reports that support their medical fitness.
o 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.
Guidance and information will be updated periodically as the situation evolves.

CAA CLASS 2:
There is now an exemption for Class 2.
I REMAIN AVAILABLE FOR ADVICE BY EMAIL OR PHONE.
FAA: There is currently an exemption for FAA medicals:
The non-enforcement of expired medical certificates is a rolling 90-day action. For example, the non-enforcement of medical certificates expiring on March 30, 2020 ended on June 30, 2020. Medical certificates expiring between now and September 30, 2020 will not be enforced for 90 days; review the examples below for further clarification.
If the applicant's certificate expires on:
March 31, certificate is in a non-enforcement status until June 30
April 30, certificate is in a non-enforcement status until July 31
May 31, certificate is in a non-enforcement status until August 31
June 30, certificate is in a non-enforcement status until September 30
July 31, certificate is in a non-enforcement status until October 31
August 31, certificate is in a non-enforcement status until November 30
September 30, certificate is in a non-enforcement status until December 31
There is additional regulatory relief that allows airmen to fly internationally; for details they should contact Flight Standards.
