INITIAL EASA class 2 medical

What to expect at your INITIAL EASA class 2 medical?

 

The medical will take about an hour, as there is a lot of data to input onto the CAA medical system.

You will need to come prepared. Please bring:

  • Photo identification
  • Completed Med 162 form (see below) 
  • Glasses and prescription (if relevant)

You will complete the application form Med 160, which we will then go through together.

The medical involves a physical examination of heart, lungs, abdomen and nervous system. I will measure your height, weight, pulse and blood pressure. You will have your hearing and ears assessed.

You will need to provide a sample of urine for testing (I will provide a pot).

I may need to perform an ECG test, which will depend on your age and medical history. Sometimes the result of the ECG test needs over reading by a Consultant Cardiologist. The charge for this is £50 and is payable in advance, by you on the day of the medical.

 

Med 162 form

You will need to make an appointment at the optician for a routine eye test, which will cost about £20. Please download the Med 162 form, using the link, and ask the optician to complete it for you.

You will only need to do this at your initial medical, as I will do the necessary eye examination tests at renewal/revalidation medicals.

 

If you meet the medical standards required by EASA, I will issue the certificate on the day of your medical. Occasionally this may be delayed, if there is a problem with the IT system.

 

If you do not meet the standards required by EASA, then your medical will be deferred and you may need to have further tests and submit reports from other specialists. I will be able to guide you through the process. All extra costs are your responsibility.

What to expect at your Renewal/Revalidation EASA class 2 medical

The medical will take about an hour.

 

You will need to come prepared. Please bring:

  • Photo identification
  • Your old medical certificate
  • Glasses and prescription (if relevant)

 

You will complete the application form Med 160, which we will then go through together.

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, hearing and ears assessed.

You will need to provide a sample of urine for testing (I will provide a pot).

I may need to perform an ECG test, which will depend on your age and medical history. Sometimes the result of the ECG test needs over reading by a Consultant Cardiologist. The charge for this is £50 and is payable in advance, by you, on the day of the medical.

 

If you meet the medical standards required by EASA, I will issue the certificate on the day of your medical. Occasionally this may be delayed, if there is a problem with the IT system.

 

If you do not meet the standards required by EASA, then your medical will be either be “deferred” or you will be made “unfit”. You will need to have further tests and submit reports from other specialists. I will be able to guide you through the process. All extra costs incurred, are your responsibility.

 

If you are made “unfit”, I will charge for the time I spend 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 and updating the CAA online medical system. You may require a review appointment with me if the casework has been complicated.
