CAA & FAA Aviation Medicals, Casework, and Ophthalmology

for pilots, air traffic controllers, and cabin crew

Welcome to

My name is John Pitts. My qualifications are BSc (Hons) MB ChB LLM FRCP FRCS FRCOphth DAvMed.

The MB ChB is my medical degree from Glasgow Uni. The LLM is a masters in medical law from Cardiff Uni, where my dissertation was in aviation regulation. The FRCP dates from my time working in general medicine and neurology. The FRCS and FRCOphth are my qualification as an eye surgeon, and the DAvMed is my postgraduate qualification in aviation medicine. I am based in London, mainly in Marylebone, W1 (just a short walk from Great Portland Street, Baker Street, Regent’s Park or Oxford Circus tube stations), with occasional Saturdays at London Bridge.

I offer CAA & FAA pilot medicals, casework, and ophthalmology services for pilots and cabin crew.

I strongly respect your right to dignity during medical examination.

Intimate examination (i.e. breast, testicular and rectal examination) is not part of aircrew medicals. A chaperone is always present for female medicals and can be arranged for male medicals – just ask! If you wish, you can download self-examination leaflets below. Female DownloadMale Download
