      Hi Scotty, have you heard any update on using Freestyle Libre from CAA. I’m cabin crew, just done my annual medical renewal but advised I still have to finger prick onboard every 2 hours. Cannot find any info anywhere on CAA authoising the Freestyle Libre?

        Hi Magic1973. I still have to finger prick in accordance with the CAA diabetes protocol. They know about my Freestyle Libre and are happy for me to use it, but only to supplement the finger prick testing. I understanding that a trial in the future will be carried out comparing both CGM and traditional finger prick testing. This could pave the way for CGM being the main way of testing should the trial be successful.

        Hi Scotty, that’s fantastic news, fingers crossed the trial takes place as soon as possible and that it paves the way for onboard use of Freestyle Libre. I saw my AME last week, she advised CAA rather slow on updating things, but she’s hopeful too the Freestyle Libre is approved soon to follow DVLA.

      Hi Scotty. Not looking at class 1 for commercial but even ppl seems impossible with passengers? Cannot find any up to date caa info other than nppl and single engine piston all solo being fine by them. With class 1 medical now ok for commercial, this cant be right!? Any chance you can point me in the right direction? Many thanks!

        Hi Michael - as far as I'm aware, Class 1 commercial operations are allowed with multi-pilot limitation (medical flight test in full motion sim has to be carried out). NPPL and PPL allowed (medical flight test done with CFI). The only item on my medical certificate stating 'NOT APPLICABLE' is single pilot commercial operations which is understandable.

        Hopefully that helps?

      Hey Scotty, my name is Roman and I live in USA. Being a pilot has been my dream and currently, I'm looking into a possibility of getting my PPL and all of my ratings in US and maybe trying to find a job in Canada somehow. If you could give me some information that could help me figure out on how I should go about this, I would really appreciate it. Please send me a direct message bc I can't.
