Medical condition assessment

Flying Instructors & Examiners - PPRuNe Forums - www.pprune.org
There seems to be recently, certainly through our flying club a lot of members failing medicals. They are just that age I suppose.

But what I am starting to object to are members being told to download forms such as hearing assessment. I am then asked to check them practically in the aircraft to see if they can hear radio communication and sign off.

Now i am not an AME or a Doctor or a hearing specialist.

Why can't the AME for the fee they charge, do the class 1 audio test and just satisfy themselves. Why pass the buck to a flight examiner or instructor.

The person coming to me could be as deaf as a post, am I going to ground a customer? Why put me in a situation where I have to tell someone I can't sign them off, which as not yet happened.

The latest has been a psychological type test for me to determine if a student has any problems functioning in the aircraft.

After that German wings incident, where's the come back.
