At this moment there is still some doubt regarding the French medical system.

As discussed previously on this site, the CAA do not recognise the French class 2 medical because it does not reach JAR standards.

The DGAC has recently overhauled their system to comply with European standards.

I am awaiting a reply from the CAA to determine if this new medical it is now acceptable to them.

I can give you a list of French doctors if you are considering embarking on a French PPL.

Usually a list of doctors can be found at your local Aeroclub.

There is now a link to a list of French Authorised Medical Examiners on the 'Aviation Links' section of this blog.
