a. shall inform the authority in writing as soon as the period of 21 days has elapsed in the case of illness, injury or pregnancy. The medical certificate shall be deemed to be suspended upon the occurrence of such injury or the elapse of such period illness or the confirmation of the pregnancy

b. shall inform the authority in writing of such injury or pregnancy, and as soon as the period of 21 days has elapsed in the case of illness. The medical certificate shall be deemed to be suspended upon the occurrence of such injury or the elapse of such period illness or the confirmation of the pregnancy

c. In the case of injury only the suspension shall be lifted upon the holder being medically examined under arrangements made by the authority and being pronounced fit to function as a member of the flight crew, or in the case of illness upon the authority exempting, subject to such conditions as it thinks fit, the holder from the requirement of a medical examination

This question has been asked in many different ways in practice papers I have done and they are very sneaky about how they word it. What does anybody else think?

I didn't say you were right OR wrong, the answer will be revealed in due course!! I just thought that it would be good to talk about this one as it's a bit of a difficult one to remember. These discussions are helping me as much as anyone!!

Why do you think its B?

To be honest I am working from my PPL memory - haven't read it for CPL yet. It's Air Law, yeah?

Erm...

My memory says you must inform "the authority" straight away in the case of injury or pregnacy and after 21 days for illness. That removes answer A. Answer B seems correct but there may be a sneaky thing I have missed that leads to a less official answer C or D (which I have no recollection of being right or wrong) being the correct answer...

Perhaps being pregnant does not suspend your license (can't remember) and thus answer C is correct....

Again it's finding things wrong with the answers rather than finding the correct one and my memory is not fresh enough!

Yes it is an Air Law question but it has come up in Human Performance a couple of times too. Are you not tackling the Air Law yet? It's a HUGE book isn't it! I have 13 chapters to go and my exam is in 2 weeks!!! Yikes!

Well I was waiting to see if anybody else wanted to have a stab at it, but apparantly not! Very Happy

Yes, you were right. B is the correct wording they use. 21 days applies only to illness.

One thing I did not know was that you can actually keep on flying when pregnant with the approval off the CAA/JAA. That one caught me out a few times.

I know most of your folks on here are blokes, but out of interest, has anybody actually continued flying whilst pregnant? I wonder what their grounds for approval are? Whether you can still manage to fit into the R22? Wink lol
