    My SWAG.
    A medical is a medical. ICAO does not specify who is the examine physician. Further no one ever asked me for my medical except our own inspectors. I flew to Canada many times back in the day (last time 2008 and unless things changed I don't recall ever meeting a Canadian Customs guy, unless driving.

    Not sure, but I think Basic Med doesn't work in the Great White North.

    Can't fly Canada under BasicMed currently, but they are working on it (for a while now...). In 2008 there was no BasicMed so if you went to Canada then there's no comparison to now. From what others who have crossed the border recently have posted here, you do get checked in on entry to Canada. It would be quite a bummer to go on the risk they won't check your documents and find out they get checked, you argue ICAO and get denied entry. But if your a risk taker, go for it and let us know how it works out.

    I haven't flown there since BasicMed, but they never checked any documents the half dozen times I've crossed the border. That includes the radio station license you are suppose to have. I talked with a Canadian Customs Agent a few years back about that, and he said he's done customs inspections 'with prejudice' and never asked for it. YMMV. Legally, you should have it. We haven't had one since they started charging for it.

    Given the earlier comments in this thread about the Alaska to Sibera route, I thought this article in the General Aviation New was interesting.

    Interesting. I think B369 is the name of the route on the charts.
