Having just had my third annual since the blood sugar level criteria was changed for no justifiable reason, I can't say that I'm disappointed to see such a divisive PMO leave the CASA.

However the issue remains that we are left with the results of his time in the chair and no certainty that things will return to the way that they were.

For those not caught up with the blood sugar level change, the criteria was dropped from 6.0 to 5.5 and those above are required to take a glucose tolerance test. The 'justification' is the recommendation of the Australian Diabetes Association who recommend a GTT once every three years for those with >5.5 and who are considered high risk health category. Not annually for otherwise healthy pilots!
