What’s involved in my LAPL Medical?

For LAPL 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 LAPL 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.

Should you be aware of any medical issues it is wise to inform us prior to your physical examination. We can then advise you about any information which may be required, preventing delays.

Initial LAPL Medicals and revalidation for LAPL licence holders

Initial medicals usually take an hour. If you wear spectacles or contact lenses for distance or reading vision, please bring a recent prescription from your optician.

We also offer renewal medicals for LAPL licence holders.

Being a pilot is a safety-critical job. We see your aviation medical as an opportunity to discuss your individual queries about human factors and performance. This means giving you advice on how to best manage your lifestyle, rest and any health concerns; so helping you stay fit to fly.
