    I do hope Dr Kamathia has a different MDO than I. Whilst "a GP is ideally placed to opine on Fitness to Fly" if it goes belly up and the aircraft has to divert then I know who would be getting the legal letter to pay up. Frankly there would be no circumstances where a GP should be involved with this. All carriers have an Aviation Medical department who will give their sanction or refuse. Just say No.

  • Quite right. "Because I read it in Pulse" won't be much of a defence.
