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.

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 the government’s advice on social distancing and non-essential journeys, and my return to NHS work, I am restricting the number and nature of pilot medicals I am booking. Clients should bear in mind that extensions to validity of commercial medical certificates have been adopted by the UK CAA. Please see their website for details. Before attending a medical, please confirm that you have not had symptoms in the last week, or have been in contact in the last two weeks with someone who has symptoms. Please wear a face covering to your medical. Please note that I will check your forehead temperature before proceeding on the day.
