Peter Saundby became a RAF Medical Officer in 1957, retiring as an Air Commodore in 1991. He has held a PPL since 1953 and has been a glider pilot since 1960, becoming an instructor and Medical Adviser to the BGA. For over 20 years, he has been the UK representative to the FAI Medical Commission and Medical Coordinator for Europe Air Sports. He successfully argued the case for a simplified medical requirements for the NPPL in the UK, and is now negotiating with EASA to apply the same rules to the proposed European Recreational PPL. Thousands of British recreational pilots have benefitted from his negotiating skills.
