European pilot medicals


The following information is correct until Brexit arrangements are finalised. As of April 2020, we are told that these arrangements will persist until December 2020.

I carry out all classes of EASA/EU medical renewal and revalidation: Class 1 (commercial), Class 2 (private) and Class 3 (ATCO).

I carry out class 2 (private) and cabin crew initial medicals.

Regular AMEs cannot do INITIAL CLASS 1 (COMMERCIAL) or CLASS 3 (ATCO) EASA/EU MEDICALS except at an AEROMEDICAL CENTRE (AeMC). I carry these out at Heathrow Medical Services but not in my own offices.

You can check the medical standards here.

Not a UK License holder?

If your state of license issue (SOLI) is not the UK, I cannot use the AMEonline system and instead have to transmit the paperwork to the relevant aviation authority. Please note that I charge more for these medicals to cover the extra work.

I can re-validate or renew EASA and JAR-compliant certificates issued by the EU states: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK; and also the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) States: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

I cannot renew Turkish or Serbian certificates as these are not affected by EU law, including the Aircrew Regulation. JAR certificates issued by AMEs in these states are not deemed to be EASA certificates and therefore cannot be re-validated or renewed by UK AMEs.

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.
