EASA Class 1 Aeromedical Examination

If you are applying or holding a commercial pilot licence (CPL), a multi-crew pilot licence (MPL) or an airline transport pilot licence (ATPL), you need a valid class 1 medical certificate.

Checking if you meet the safe medical standards

In order to obtain or maintain a valid license to fly, it is essential that you, as a pilot, meet medical standards – it is one of the EASA’s requirements to keep you and your environment safe. It is necessary to obtain a valid medical certificate before a CPL, ATPL or MPL license can be granted. Sky Medical Center is an approved Aeromedical Center by the Dutch government to provide Medical Certificates.

Aeromedical research; how does that work?

Your examination starts with the digital submission or completion of the application form in which you describe your medical, psychological and other history. The medical assistant will carry out the required physical examinations in the examination room.
You will then be examined by the Aeromedical Examiner, such as your eyesight, throat, nose and ears, and a number of neurological tests.
Provided you have met the requirements, we can issue your certificate on the same day. If there is a condition, documentation is required. If required, the Aeromedical Examiner will contact your Licensing Authority to discuss whether the Medical can be issued.
The initial class 1 medical examination will take approximately 4 hours. You do not need to be sober. We will arrange your extensive eye examination with our optometrist prior to the examination on the same day, if possible.
If you already have known medical problems, please contact us as soon as possible. So that you can be advised what documentation you bring with you.

The validity is restricted to 6 months for holders of licenses which allow them to perform commercial passenger flights in single pilot airplanes and being 40 years of age and older and for pilots with a license who are 60 years of age and older.
