Guest sharky Posted July 30, 2003 Report Share Posted July 30, 2003 CAR 404.04 (6)© States that a medical certificate is valid for 24 months if that person is a holder of a student pilot permit. I''ve been on the phone all day trying to get some further interpretation on this. This particular student is on a commercial course, and his medical exam date was 15 months ago. Is he now expired? Or does 404.04 (6c) apply? And if it does, is he able to do his written exam and his flight test under this 2yr-SPP medical? If so, it would be probable that the second the SPP was endorsed on the back for a temporary CPL, THEN, he would be invalid, until the medical was completed? One TC official said he would not be able to write his exam until he produced a valid medical. And another said that he should be fine under the 2 yr SPP rule. Why doesn''t he just schedule a medical, would be the simplest solution, but; The student is reluctant to do his medical here, because he requires an extensive audiogram (sort of trend monitoring) for a pre-existing hearing problem. He qualified for a Class 1 medical, but wants to wait until he goes back to his home province to undertake the medical/audiogram, where is his file is on hand at the hearing clinic, in his hometown....instead of paying the shipping and handling to have it all sent out here.
