What to expect at your Cabin Crew medical?
We are UK CAA approved AMEs and cannot perform EASA medicals. It is your responsibilty to check with your employer if a UK AME issued certificate is acceptable.
The medical will take about 30 minutes.
You will need to come prepared. Please bring:
You will complete the application form, which your AME will go through with you on the day of the medical.
The medical involves a physical examination of heart, lungs, abdomen and nervous system. You will have your height, weight, pulse and blood pressure measured. You will have your vision and ears assessed. You will be required to provide a sample of urine for testing (I will supply a pot).
If you meet the medical standards required, the certifictate will be issued on the day of your medical.
If you do not meet the standards required, then you will be assessed as “unfit”. You may need to have further tests and submit reports from other specialists. You will be guided through the process. All extra costs incurred, are your responsibility.
If you are made “unfit”, you will be charged for the time spent reviewing your case. This time is typically spent on “casework” and comprises: writing referrals, reviewing specialist reports, communicating with you, communicating with the CAA medical department. You may require a review appointment if the casework has been complicated.
