That did not change anything. Which class of medical was required used to be part of the individual license sections, but is now consolidated in Part 67. Nothing change w.r.t. which medical class was required, or the standards for each medical class.
I knew at some point you would prove that you're human. :wink:
Ah, I see there were some changes... A few licenses got reduced medical requirements - but RPL somehow got bumped up. It was more likely than not a typo, but due to the poor performance of the various representative bodies at CARCOM, you are now stuck with it...
Yes I suppose that is what played out but I know why CAA wanted to separate it from recreational medical classes within part 67. I have no issue with the change but rather the lack of comms which led to a bit of a surprise a few days ago. But hey you snooze you loose.

It doesn't effect me personally as my medical covers all but it does change a few things for some which is why I tried to very quickly understand the differences.
