The CAA has advised that medicals for GA pilots (Class 2/LAPL) are SUSPENDED during the lockdown period, but can resume when lockdown restrictions are lifted (provisionally Wednesday 2nd December). PLEASE DO NOT BOOK A CLASS 2 OR LAPL MEDICAL DURING THIS PERIOD UNLESS IT IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF WORK OR IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES AS DEFINED BY CAA.
PLEASE READ THIS PARAGRAPH: You should receive an e-mail confirmation – if not please call us to check that your appointment has indeed been registered, or try again to book the same slot – if it is still available, the first attempt failed. When booking please LOOK CAREFULLY at your computer/phone/tablet screen and make sure you have not omitted a “CONTINUE” OR A FINAL “SUBMIT” AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE – YOU MAY NEED TO SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE DEPENDING ON DEVICE/BROWSER – ESPECIALLY ON MOBILE PHONES – TO SEE THIS.
Bookings can be made online or by telephone (01293 776996). The online booking system will send an e-mail confirmation.
Routine Medicals: This includes renewal/revalidation CAA EASA Class 1, initial/renewal/revalidation CAA EASA Class 2, all classes of initial and renewal FAA medicals, etc.
Initial CAA EASA Class 1 or extended CAA EASA Class 1 medicals (where the last medical expired more than 5 years after the single pilot commercial air transport expiry date) – MUST be carried out at an aeromedical centre elsewhere. PLEASE NOTE – WE ARE NO LONGER AN AEROMEDICAL CENTRE.
Using the online booking system – select:
(i) Service = “Routine medical”;
(ii) Staff member = Dr David Tallent (on Mondays and Tuesdays); or
(iii) Staff member = Dr Sam Ward (on Fridays)
Please note that non-EASA medicals (eg FAA, Transport Canada) must be booked with Dr Tallent – NOT Dr Ward.
Payment of fees for routine medicals is made at the time of the medical, by credit/debit card, cheque or cash. No deposit is payable at the time of booking.
Please note that the online booking system will indicate:
(i) an appointment START TIME – this is the time your medical starts;
(ii) a FINISH TIME (this may be anything from 15 to 60 minutes after the START TIME) – this does NOT indicate the duration of the appointment, or the time of completion of the medical – it indicates the interval between successive appointments for different clients, and is therefore of no relevance to the client. In other words, you only need 1 appointment slot for a medical, even if you are booking an extra medical, eg. a CAA and FAA medical simultaneously.
Typically an appointment duration is 60 – 75 minutes for a Class 1 renewal/revalidation or other medical.
