Aeromedical Examiner    www.pilotmedical.co.uk

 
 

Each medical consists of:

The applicant completing an application form and    bringing it  to the medical (link to form below).

Time spent discussing any symptoms or relevant history

A physical examination.

Any tests (eg an ECG or an audiogram) IF mandated.

Issue of the medical certificate (assuming you’re fit!)


The examination will usually take about forty minutes and the medical certificate will usually be issued to you at the time of the examination.


I suggest you use this checklist to prepare for the medical:


  1. 1.Bring your passport or other photo ID.

  2. 2.Bring a completed Airside Driver Application Form.

  3. 3.Bring any previous certificate if you have had one.

  4. 4.If you have glasses, bring them (even if you wear contact lenses - we’ll check your eyes with and without glasses).

  5. 5.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.

  6. 6.Where to come? Check the LOCATION page of this site.

  7. 7.Bring some means of paying (see ‘fees and paying’ page). If you are a DTVA employee you will not need to pay (I have an arrangement for invoicing the Airport). This arrangement applies to DTVA Employees only. The DTVA work-groups included are, multi-skilled operatives, ADMs, Consort staff, Fire crew, ATC, ATE, Engineering staff and Airport Management. Applicants not employed by DTVA will need to pay for the medical at the medical appointment (receipts will be given).
