EASA Class 1,2,3 and LAPL Aviation medicals

I am pleased to report that I am an EASA Approved AME and I can offer medical appointments for all EASA licensed pilots, ATCOs and Cabin Crew. I CAN'T DO INITIAL CLASS 1 OR 3 ASSESSMENTS. IF THATS WHAT YOU NEED, YOU'LL NEED ONE OF THE AEROMEDICAL CENTRES. If you need an EASA Class 1 or Class 3 revalidation or renewal examination or EASA Class 2 and LAPL initial, revalidation or renewal examination please book an appointment via the booking page of this website. If you require BOTH UK and EASA assessments, that’s no problem but be sure to complete the preparatory steps outlined on the UK and EASA pages of the website so that you’re ready. Please understand that the standard fee applies to each medical, mainly to cover the oversight and approval costs levied by the regulatory authorities (but rest assured these are still some of the lowest fees in the UK).

How does it work?
As with EASA aircrew and ATCOs who are licensed in one EASA state or another, AMEs are similarly approved by an EASA state national authority. In my case, I am approved as a 'Class 1' AME by the Maltese national authority (Transport Malta), with Malta being an EASA contracting state.

As an EASA approved AME, I will conduct a medical assessment to EASA standards (laid out in 'PartMed' regulatory framework). As an EASA approved AME I am able to assess Licence holders from any EASA state so I should be able to help with any EASA medical certificate.
Simply send me an email (see contact page) and I'll reply with a list of dates (in the next few days and weeks) for you to choose from to come to an appointment. Follow the instructions below which includes completing an application form to being with you to the appointment. When we meet, I will perform an EASA medical assessment on you and all being well, I'll issue you with a new EASA medical certificate at the appointment. I will then send copies of all relevant documentation (such as the application form and examination report form) as well as a copy of the certificate issued to you at the appointment to your licensing authority (wether that be the Irish Aviation Authority, Austrocontrol, the LuftfhartBundesamt or any other EASA state licensing authority).

You can be assured that, whichever Licence you hold, from whichever EASA state licensing authority, I will issue you a valid EASA Medical certificate which will 'validate' your EASA licence. I provide that summary to explain how being seen by a Malta Approved AME in the UK (on Malta issued EASA paperwork) will be acceptable for a licence holder who has a Sate of Licence Issue (SOLI) from say Denmark, Austria, France, Spain, Ireland, Malta, Germany or frankly any other EASA state.

  1. To book a medical, please see this website: Card payment details are needed to secure the booking, but no payment will be taken at the time of booking. Payment for the medical is taken at the time of the medical itself. If you make a late cancellation (within 24hrs of the appointment) or fail to attend the appointment, a late cancellation failure to attend fee of £50 will be charged.
  2. Bring your passport.
  3. Follow the following link to the relevant Medical certificate application form, print it, fill it in and bring it with you. For Pilots: EASA Class 1/2/3/LAPL Medical certificate application form.
  4. If you are a Class 1 or Class 2 Medical certificate applicant, please complete this mental health checklist and bring it with you.
  5. Bring any current or expired medical certificate.
  6. Relevant to Class 1 certificate holders: This step is important OPTICIANS REPORTS: If you wear glasses or have any eyesight limitation on your current certificate, take this form to an optician, ask them to examine you, complete it and bring it with you. You could help the optician by completing your own demographics (sections 1-13 and 302). The optician doesn’t need to complete section 310. Their sections are 303 to 323 and then name and address at the bottom.
  7. If you have any medical conditions or are on any medication (particularly new diagnoses or treatments) email me beforehand with details. I want to help you prepare for the medical to minimise problems on the day.
  8. All class 1 pilots will need a finger prick haemoglobin blood test. Whilst I’m taking that blood we could use a drop to check your lipid profile. For some this is mandatory but for most it’s optional. So consider if you would like your lipid profile checking at the medical.  I’ll use the information to calculate your stroke and heart attack risk over the next decade and discuss strategies to reduce elevated risk.
  9. If you would like a chaperone to be present during the medical, either bring someone with you or let me know beforehand if you’d like me to make arrangements for one.
  10. Bring some means of paying (see fees and paying page).
