As the owner of a LAPL (A) Licence, I have also completed a Medical Declaration in lieu of the previous Class 2 certificate. I fly a non EASA light aircraft and, under the old medical certificate, was licenced to fly in France (or elsewhere out of the UK). As I understand it, my current situation only allows national and not international flying unless I "have obtained advanced permission from the relevant aviation authority of the country being overflown" (from Declaration Guidance Notes). Has anyone obtained such permission, if so how, or has the problem been otherwise resolved / revoked?
