It has come to light recently that the IAA, the Irish aviation regulator has decided that they no longer accept the UK medical self declaration out of the blue, in essence they have banned uk pilots who are legal to fly in the UK from visiting the Emerald Isle . This is a worrying development , I am told by good authority that this may be a clerical over site , however pilots using the uk NPPL must be careful until this matter is clarified . Is this a Brexit negation tactic put in place as a bargaining chip, this remains to be seen. I sincerely hope the matter is clarified before the flying season starts in earnest. Please watch this space for further developments. The matter is being raised on your behalf by the NMAI. Let’s hope common sense prevails.
