Hey guys and gals,

Has anyone here ever heard of or done a Medical Practical Flight Test with the CAA before? I would be most grateful for any information on this. [-o<

Read and replied, I hope you negotiate your way through it and have many more flying hours.

I would also suggest that you detail your story here if you feel comfortable with that. There are bound to be a few now and certainly many more in years to come who need to comply with a similar protocol within part 67. That choice is yours :D

I have also had my medical revoked and need to carry out a practical flight test with the CAA due to my Monocular vision. I have been flying for the last 7 years and have been passing actual flight tests but now need to do a practical flight test. The test is in a 737 simulator and will cost close to R10k. I am a recreational PPL and find it hard to understand how a test in a 737 simulator is beneficial. Has anyone carried out this practical flight test as a PPL ?
