It is self-evident that every professional and recreational pilot must be certified by an aeromedical examination, provided by an authorised aeromedical examiner. There are different guidelines, set up by The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), to ensure the safety of pilots, parachutists, cabin crew and passengers. A successful medical examination is one of the important requirements for being allowed to independently fly an aircraft. An aeromedical examiner from Sky Medical Center is specialised in this type of examination. He or she validates that you are medically capable of flying an aircraft by performing a number of health checks. If you are approved after examination, you get your medical certificate the same day and you are cleared to fly again. In other words, the medical examination from Sky Medical Center does not require complex and lengthy procedures.
The elements of a medical examination
There are various aeromedical certificates that pilots need, depending on the types of aircrafts they fly. At Sky Medical Center, you can register for an examination for, among others, EASA Class 1, Class 2, LAPL or Cabin Crew aeromedical certificate. Before the aeromedical examiner starts his or her general physical examination, you fill out the application form about your medical history. This also involves a vision test, which is of course an important aspect of your medical status when it comes to flying an aircraft. It is recommended to contact your aeromedical examiner as soon as possible to discuss the medical problems you already have. This way, you are also informed about the correct and required documentation.
The duration of obtaining your certificate
When you want to do the initial EASA aeromedical Class 1 examination, it will take approximately four hours to complete the tests.
