****  UPDATE 26 FEBRUARY 2021  ****


Dr Tallent is a qualified AME (Aeromedical Examiner) and can therefore examine all commercial pilots for UK and EU (EASA) medical certificates.

Aircrew medical certificates for which Dr Tallent is fully authorised include:

  • UK and EU (EASA) Class One renewal/revalidation for Professional Pilots (Please see notes below)

  • European Class Three renewal/revalidation for Air Traffic Control Officers
  • CAA Class One for Flight Engineers
  • FAA (US) Class First, Second and Third – initial and renewal for all classes

Some aviation authorities require blood tests (eg lipid profile, fasting blood glucose, haemoglobin), cardiovascular risk assessment, stress ECG – we perform all of these in-house.

Note 1: If you have not attended our practice before, it is essential to bring your passport for identification – we are obliged to check this and take a photocopy; it is not possible to proceed with the medical until we have seen the original, current passport; a scan, copy, even if certified or notarised, or a photo driving licence is not acceptable.

For ALL SUBSEQUENT MEDICALS, please bring your passport or photo driving licence.

Note 2:  Please bring medical reports in respect of any significant medical history since the last medical.

Note 3:  We do not accept applicants under the age of 17 years; applicants aged 17 years should carefully read the GMC Guidance on under-18s and seek advice on the content from a parent or person with parental responsibility if the content is  unclear, and are recommended to attend with a parent or person with parental responsibility.  At the time of the medical examination the applicant will be requested to sign a confirmation statement to the effect that they are aware of the content of the GMC Guidance, and indicate (i) whether there are any aspects that they wish to discuss with the AME, (ii) whether they wish to involve a parent or person with parental responsibility in this discussion, and (iii) whether they wish the parent or person with parental responsibility to be present during any or all parts of the medical examination.
