I renewed my licences in Desember I was requested to do a audio test with a audiologist which I done and was cleared as satisfactory My license was issued and sent to me. NOW after 1month I get notified that I have to do a compulsory flight test at civil aviation on a simulator The costs amount to R10000.00 I know of 3 other pilots with the same issue I done the flight test in Desember as the 2 year period was due

Someone there is trying to screw us big time. I also had my medical cancelled a month before my new medical was due for some irrelevant tests.
What can a simulator test prove about your hearing? Go and test in real life under real conditions at 10% the cost for heaven sakes😈
