Radgirl alludes above to the effects of covid19 on holding a flying licence medical. Like many pilots with connections to and knowledge of the medical profession I do worry about the casual way that covid deniers assume that they can have a mild to moderate dose of Covid 19 and carry on with a full flying licence.

With one of the licences I hold, I have to perform a spirometry test every year to hold a class 2 medical. My AME informs me that although the numbers are very few so far and not enough to make a case, he and his colleague's experience so far is that it is highly unlikely that anyone who has recovered from moderate Covid19 would be able to perform a satisfactory spirometry test under their jurisdiction.

If you want to keep a flying licence, do not catch this disease. Wear your mask, socially distance and get vaccinated.
