for the grant or renewal of a licence shall be required to furnish to the
medical examiner a declaration signed by him stating whether he has
previously undergone such medical examination and, if so, where, when
and with what result. A false declaration may entail the cancellation of
any licence granted or renewed as a result of the examination.
33. If the holder of a licence is aware, or has reasonable grounds
to suspect, that his physical, aural or eye condition has deteriorated in
any respect, even if only temporarily as a result of a common minor
ailment, so that it may be below the standard of medical fitness required
for the grant of such licence, he shall not act in any capacity for which
he is so. licensed until he is satisfied that his condition has been restored
to the required standard.

.acting in any capacity for which he is licensed; or
(c) suffers from any illness involving incapacity for work dur-
ing twenty days or more,
he shall send notification of the occurrence, in writing, to the Airport
Manager, as soon as possible in case of accident, and, in the case of illness,
as soon as the said period of twenty days has elapsed.
(2) The holder of a licence may, after suffering any such personal
injury or illness as aforesaid, be required to undergo a full or partial
medical examination. He shall not, therefore, resume acting irn any
capacity for which he is licensed until he has either been examined and
pronounced fit or notified that an examination is not required.
(3) Pregnancy shall be regarded as incapacitating the holder of a
licence from carrying out flying duties. As soon as the condition has
been diagnosed the holder of a licence shall cease flying and shall not
again fly until she has, in due course, been examined and pronounced fit.
(4) Whenever the holder of a licence has performed a total of 125
hours', flying in the capacity of a member of the operating crew of a

being acting as a member of the operating crew of an aircraft in a region
distant from official medical centres the medical examination which he
should normally pass to obtain renewal of the licence may exceptionally,
at the discretion of the Governor-
(a) be deferred once for a period of six months in the case of a
member of the operating crew of a private aircraft; or









(h) he deferred for two consecutive periods of three months
each in the case of a member of the operating crew of a\ public
transport or aerial work aircraft, on condition that the applicant
obtains locally on each occasion a satisfactory medical certificate
after having been examined by a qualified medical officer.
36. The medical examination and assessment will be based on the
following requirements of mental and physical fitness:-
A. PHYSICAL STANDARD.
(a) GENERAL
(i) The applicant shall be required to be free from any
congenital or acquired disability causing such degree
of functional incapacity as is considered by the
medical examiner likely to interfere, in the case of
piloting, with the safe handling of an aircraft at any
altitude throughout a prolonged or difficult flight or,
in the case of members of the operating crew of an
aircraft other than pilots, with the efficient per-
formance of the duties to be carried out when
exercising the privileges of licence.
(ii) The medical examination will include a full enquiry
into the family and personal history of the applicant.
The information obtained shall be given in a state-
ment made and signed by him and will be taken into
consideration by the medical examiner.
(b) EXAMINATION OF THE NERVOUS .SYSTEM.
The applicant shall have no history of significant mental or nervous
trouble. He shall be required to he free from any disability of ,the
nervous system considered by the medical examiner to be of such degree
as likely to interfere with efficient function during prolonged flight.
Cases in which syphilis, past or present, has affected the central nervous
system will be assessed as permanently unfit.
(c) INJURIES OF THE HEAD.
(i) Cases of simple concussion or simple fracture of'ihe
skull without associated intracranial injury will be
assessed as temporarily unfit for a period of not less
than two months from the date of the concussion or
fracture. When the licence is renewed, it will be
made valid only for a period of two months in the first
instance. Thereafter its validity will be restricted to
consecutive periods of two months until the medical









examiner reports that he has good reason to presume
that the after-effects of the concussion or fracture are
no longer likely to cause a sudden incapacity in flight.
(ii) Cases of head injury associated with intracranial
injuries will be assessed as permanently unfit if a
local lesion of the brain persists.
(iii) Cases of head injury in which there has been an
operation on the skull with loss of bony substance
involving the two tables of the cranial vault will be
assessed as permanently unfit.
(iv) Cases of head injury associated with a lesion of the
dura mater will be assessed as permanently unfit
even if a bone graft has been done.

(d) GENERAL SURGICAL EXAMINATION.

The applicant shall neither suffer from any wound or injury, nor
have undergone any operation, nor possess any abnormality, congenital
or acquired, which is considered by the medical examiner likely to
interfere with the efficient performance of the duties to be carried out
when exercising the privileges of the licence.

Cases in which there is any significant anatomical or functional lesion
in the walls of any part of the digestive tract, any stricture, any calculus
or foreign body, any significant peritopeal lesion, established by clinical
or laboratory examinations, will be assessed as unfit. An applicant who
has undergone a major surgical operation on the biliary passages or the
digestive tract, except for appendicitis, which has involved a total or
partial excision or a diversion of any of these organs will be assessed as
unfit unless a period of one year has elapsed since the surgical operation
and the effects of the operation are not considered liable to cause sudden
incapacity in the air, provided that this period of one year may be
shortened on the production of an attestation made by a surgeon having
knowledge of the nature of the disease which necessitated the operation,
certifying that no immediate or future after-effects are to be feared.
(e) GENERAL MEDICAL EXAMINATION.

The i:pplicait shall not suffer from any disease or disability which
renders him liale suddenly to become incompetent in the performance of
the duties to be carried out when exercising the privileges of the licence.

There shall be no significant cardiovascular abnormality. The
systolic and diastolic blood pressures shall be within normal limits,









There shall be no acute disability of the lungs nor any active disease
of the structures of the lungs, mediastinum or pleura. In the case of
an examination for the first grant of a licence, radioscopy will form part
of the chest examination. RIadiography will form a part of the medical
examination in all doubtful clinical cases.
Cases of active pulmonary tuberculosis, however diagnosed, will be
assessed as unfit. Cases of quiescent or healed lesions which are known
to be tuberculous, or are .presumably tuberculous, in origin may be
assessed as fit. Cases of doubt about the activity of a lesion, where
symptoms of activity of the disease are lacking, clinically, will be assessed
as temporarily unfit for a period of not less than three months from the
date of the medical examination. At the end of the three months' period, a
further radiographic record will be made and compared carefully with
the original. If there is no sign of extension of the disease and there
are no general symptoms or symptoms referable to the chest, the applicant
may be assessed as fit, but where the licence is renewed in these circum-
stances, it will be made valid only for a period of three months-in the
first instance. Thereafter, provided there continues to be no sign of
extension of the disease.as shown by radiographio examinations carried
out at the end of each three months' period, the validity of the licence
will be restricted to consecutive, periods of three months. When the
applicant has been under observation under this- scheme for a total period
of at least two years and comparison of all the radiographic records shows
no changes or only retrogression of the lesion, the lesion will be regarded
as "quiescent or "healed ".
Cases of disease of, or of significant impairment of the functioning
of the liver, biliary passages or pancreas will be assessed as unfit.
Cases of diabetes will also be assessed as unfit.
The applicant shall be required to be free from disease of the
urogenital tract.

An applicant for the first grant of a licence who has a personal
history of syphilis shall be required to furnish evidence, satisfactory to
the medical examiner, that he has undergone adequate treatment; this
evidence shall include the result of an examination of the blood and of
the cerebrospinal fluid. An applicant showing any clinical signs of
active syphilis will be assessed as temporarily unfit fora period of not
less than three months from the date of the medical examination. At the
end of the three months' period, provided the applicant furnishes proof,
satisfactory to the medical examiner, that he has undergone-adequate
treatment in the interim and that serological reaction for-syphilis is
negative, he may be assessed as fit but, where a licence is granted or
renewed in these circumstances, it will be made valid only for a period
of three months in the first instance. Thereafter, provided serological








23

Reactions for syphilis continue to be negative at the end of each three
Months' period, the validity of the licence will be. restricted to
consecutive periods of three months. When the applicant has been
Sunder observation under this scheme for a total period of at least three
years and the serological reactions have continued to be negative, the
restriction on the period of validity of the licence may be'removed. In
cases where the serological reaction for syphilis remains persistently
positive, examinations of the cerebro-spinal fluid at the end of each
period of six months with negative results may be accepted in lieu of
negative serological reactions at the end of each period of three months.
Any evidence of syphilis of the central nervous system will be confirmed
by the result of an examination of the cerebro-spinal fluid.
The cases of applicants of the female sex who have undergone
gynecological or other surgical operations -will be considered in-
dividually. In the event of presumed pregnancy the applicant will be
assessed as temporarily unfit until, at least, after the pregnancy has been
terminated; after confinement or miscarriage the candidate will not be
permitted to exercise the privileges of her licence until she has under-
gone a new medical examination and been assessed as fit.
(f) EYE EXAMINATION.
There shall be no active pathological condition, acute or chronic, of
either eye or adnexte which is considered likely by the medical examiner
to interfere with its proper function. (Aote: The details of the Visual
Standard are specified in paragraph B and those for Colour Perception
in paragraph C of this regulation).
(g) EAR EXAMINATION.
There shall be-
(i) No active pathological process, acute or chronic, of the
internal ear or middle ear cleft;
(ii) No unhealed unclosedd) perforation of the tympanic
membrane;
(iii) No obstruction of the Eustachian tubes;
(iv) No disturbances of the vestibular apparatus.
(Note: The details of the Hearing Standard are specified in para-
graph D of this regulation).
.(h) NOSE, THROAT AND MOUTH EXAMINATION.
There shall be free nasal air entry on both sides. There shall be no
serious malformation or serious, acute or chronic, affection of the buccal
cavity or upper respiratory tract.

B. VISUAL STANDARD
The measurement of visual acuity will be made by means of a series
of optotypes of Landholt, or similar optotypes, illuminated at not less
than twelve lux and not more than twenty lux, and placed at a distance
of twenty feet from the applicant.

The applicant shall be required to have:-
(a) a visual acuity of at least 6/12 (20/40) in each eye sepa-
rately without correction:

(i) in the case of an applicant for the grant of a licence,
if the vision in either or both eyes is less than 6/12
(20/40) but not less than 6/24 (20/80) and can be
brought up to 6/6 (20/20) or better in each eye by
glasses, the applicant may be assessed as fit upon
condition that correcting glasses are worn while
exercising the privileges of the licence; and
(ii) in the case an applicant for the renewal of a licence,
if the vision in either or both eyes is less than 6/12
(20/40) but not less than 6/60 (20/200) and can be
brought up to 6/9 (20/30) or better in each eye by
glasses, the applicant may be assessed as fit upon
condition that correcting glasses are worn while
exercising the privileges of the licence, and that in
the case of any such applicant with vision in either
or both eyes less than 6/24 (20/80) he carries on his
person a spare set of correcting glasses.
(b) normal fields of vision, due allowance being made where
errors of refraction exist for those areas not covered by the correct-
ing lenses.
C. COLOUR PERCEPTION STANDARD
The measurement of colour perception should be made by means of
a suitable lantern. When a lantern is used it should present the
light, transmitted by coloured screens lighted at five lux, for one second
and seen at a distance of twenty feet in an angle of three minutes.
The applicant shall be required to be able to distinguish easily signal
red, signal green and white.
D. HEARING STANDARD
The applicant shall be required not to have a loss in either ear of
more than twenty decibels at any one of the four frequencies, 500,










1,000, 2,000 and 3,000 cycles per second as measured by means of a
standard pure tone audiometer in a quiet room, that is, a room in which
the intensity level of the background noise is less than fifty decibels as
measured by a sound level meter.
Where, however, the applicant for the grant or renewal of a licence
fails to satisfy this standard the licence may nevertheless be granted or
renewed provided that the applicant either-
(a) has not a loss in either ear of more than twenty decibels
at any one of the three frequencies, 500, 1,000 and 2,000 cycles per
second, or of more than forty decibels/at the frequency of 3,000
cycles per second; or
(b) demonstrates his ability, under practical or simulated
practical conditions, to receive spoken messages by radiotelephony
accurately in a complex noise background of an intensity level of not
less than 100 decibels, the intensity level of the spoken messages
being 8 decibels above the intensity level of the background noise,
and the Governor is satisfied that the applicant, by reason of his
experience in radio reception, can competently perform the duties for
,which the licence is desired,
