As per my previous post, should I be granted a class 1 medical, it will be issued with a deviation. Is the UK CAA currently the only authority in Europe operating with deviations or is this common practice in the other JAA member states as well?
I'm looking to do my training in Ireland so will I be ok for this with a UK JAA medical with deviation or is it a requirement to have an Irish medical when doing the training there? Alternatively, does the IAA offer deviations as well?
As I would like to avoid training in the UK due to exchange rates & living expenses, what is the best option open to me. I've heard that a deviation restricts you to fly G registered aircraft only, so on a modular course, how many modules could actually be done in Ireland?
Thanks for your help!
