CAA & FAA Aviation Medicals, Casework, and Ophthalmology

for pilots, air traffic controllers, and cabin crew

Welcome to pilotmedicals.com

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 at London Bridge, and am establishing a practice in Shoreham-by-Sea

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

BOOKING A MEDICAL

DIGNITY

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.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis and my return to NHS work, there may be a short delay before I reply to emails and booking requests. Please be aware of the extensions the CAA have granted in commercial and recreational aviation (available on my links page). Before attending for your medical, please confirm that you have not had symptoms in the previous week, or been in contact with anyone who has had symptoms in the previous two weeks. Please wear a mouth and nose covering to your medical and respect our receptionist, who has to carry out a symptom and contact tracing questions before she can admit you to the clinic. Please note that I will check our forehead temperatures before proceeding on the day. Thank you for understanding these precautions.
