EASA Class 1 Aeromedical Examination

A Class 1 Medical Examination is mandatory for holders of a certificate being a Commercial Pilot CPL (A) or an Airline Transport Pilot ATPL (A).

Checking if you meet the safe medical standards

To obtain or retain a valid licence to fly it’s essential you meet pilot medical standards – it is one of the requirements of EASA to keep you and the public safe. It is necessary to hold a valid medical certificate before you can be granted a Commercial, Multi-Crew or ATPL licence.

Sky Medical Center is one of the providers in the Netherlands approved by the Dutch government to provide Medical Certificates.

A medical examination; what do we do during the medical examination?

For Class 1 medicals, you will need to complete a form relating to your medical history as well as undergoing a physical examination.

We will provide you with all the information you need about identification documents and the specific forms you need to complete, so your Class 1 medical appointment runs smoothly.

Provided that you have met all requirements, we can issue your certificate on the same day. Extra tests will only be required for more complex cases. If these should be needed, the Aero Medical team at SMC will liaise with the Regulatory Authority on your behalf.

Your initial medical will take approximately 4 hours. For initial Class 1 medicals, you will require comprehensive vision testing. We will arrange your eye examination at our local optometrist in conjunction with your pilot medical examination, saving you time and ensuring you are seen by someone who is familiar with the EASA requirements.

If you have any known medical problems, please contact us as early as possible to ensure you bring the correct documentation with you and so we can advise you if you need any further medical tests.
