Medical Certificates info from http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/publications/tp14371-lra-3-0-2567.htm#3-2-7

- for your HAGAR to be valid, you have to carry your Medical Certificate with you on board your glider, once issued by TC.

The Cat 4 Medical Declaration can not be found on the above website.
- We archived one on the HPAC website a decade or so ago. No telling if it is still current though. See: http://www.hpac.ca/forms/Cat4Medical.pdf

Information pertaining to Hang Gliding can not be found in Medical Certificate specific information on the TC Website, including CARs.
This clarification needs to be addressed by the HPAC.

Questions:
1. When filling out the Cat 4, what do we check off in "Issue/renewal of a pilot licence/permit" Glider Planeur or Recreational Pilote de Loisir - or nothing?
As is, its a bit confusing, both to us and the Doctor / CAME
.
- "Ultra-light and glider (we are defined as a glider with the word hang or para appended) applicants require a witness' signature. Recreation pilot permit applicants do not."

2. Where to you submit it to? There is no mailing address on the form.

UPDATE: Found in TP 14371 - Transport Canada Aeronautical Information Manual http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/publications/tp14371-menu-3092.htm LRA Section.

"When a category 4 medical declaration is completed in full, the candidate must submit the above-mentioned form to a Transport Canada regional office, where a medical certificate will be issued."
________________________________

3.4.1.1 Category 4 Medical Declaration http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/publications/tp14371-lra-3-0-2567.htm#3-4-1

When applying for the issue or revalidation of any of the following Canadian aviation documents (CAD) listed below, the applicant may apply to obtain a category 4 medical certificate
by completing the Medical Declaration for Licences and Permits Requiring a Category 4 Medical Standard form (Form # 26-0297):

(a) Student Pilot Permit-Aeroplane;

(b) Pilot Permit-Recreational;

(c) Pilot Permit-Ultra-light Aeroplane

(d) Student Pilot Permit-Glider; and

(e) Pilot Licence-Glider.

This medical declaration may be used to determine the applicant’s medical fitness to exercise the privileges of their permit.
When completing the above-mentioned medical declaration, the applicant will not normally be required to undergo a periodic medical examination by a CAME.

The Medical Declaration for Licences and Permits Requiring a Category 4 Medical Standard form (Form # 26-0297) is composed of three parts.

Part A

All applicants must complete this part of the form. Part A requires the applicant to fill in their name, current address and other personal information.

Part B

All ultra-light and glider pilot applicants are required to complete, sign and date Part B of the medical declaration, and have it signed by a witness. (Again, we are defined as a glider with the word hang or para appended))
If the applicant has ever suffered from any of the conditions listed in Part B, they must undergo a medical examination with a CAME.

Applicants for a Student Pilot Permit-Aeroplane and a Pilot Permit-Recreational are required to complete, sign and date Part B of the medical declaration. There is no requirement to have a witness signature in this case.

Part C

This part applies only to Student Pilot Permit-Aeroplane or Pilot Permit- Recreational holders.
In addition to completing Part B, the above-mentioned applicants need to have Part C of the medical declaration completed by a physician licensed in Canada or a CAME.
There is no requirement to have a witness signature in this case.
All Pilot Permit-Recreational applicants will require a resting 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) after the age of 40, as well as on the first medical after the age of 50, and then every 4 years thereafter.
The ECG tracing is not required to be submitted with the medical declaration form.


When a category 4 medical declaration is completed in full, the candidate must submit the above-mentioned form to a Transport Canada regional office,
where a medical certificate will be issued. An applicant may have completed the category 4 medical declaration,
but may not act as a flight crew member unless the candidate can produce the appropriate medical certificate. Please refer to CAR 401.03 for more details.

A pilot renewing a category 4 medical declaration should complete the declaration form 60 days before the expiry date of the medical certificate.
This will allow Transport Canada licensing personnel enough time to issue a new category 4 medical certificate before the original medical certificate expires.

An applicant holding a category 4 medical certificate may exercise the privileges of the appropriate permit or licence while flying in Canadian airspace only.
