CAA - COVID-19 ORS4 Updates

The CAA have published a number of ORS4 Publications as below, to separate the various extensions into separate exemptions. These replace earlier ORS4 publications, in particular ORS4 1385.

Of note, ORS4 1408 contains the following:

"The CAA is looking at the use of Self-Declaration of Medicals for UK EASA Medical certificate holders at Class 2 and LAPL Medical level, as this would assist commercial pilots in returning to ICAO norms as soon as possible, such Declarations would be restricted to flights within UK airspace, we hope to publish further information shortly."

Also, hitherto any Part-MED medical certificate expiring between 16 Mar 2020 and 31 Oct 2020 could be extended until 22 Nov 2020. However, although this still holds true for certificates expiring before 31 Aug 2020, those expiring between 1 Sep 2020 and 22 Nov 2020 may now be extended by 45 days or until 31 Dec 2020, whichever the sooner.
