Gloster Aviation Medicals remains fully operational and all bookings should be made as usual through our online booking site. We ask clients who have an appointment scheduled to be vigilant regarding Covid-19 and to let us know as soon as possible if they are unwell or have been advised to isolate.

CAA portal and Cellma

As of 29th March 2021 the CAA has brought in the Cellma medicals records system for pilots with UK-issued licences. Pilots who require a UK CAA medical must now register on the CAA portal, fill out their application form online and pay the CAA submission fee (no fee for LAPL) that we previously collected on behalf of the CAA. This process is currently taking over two weeks, therefore we advise pilots to attend to this in good time. We are able to conduct your medical examination whilst this administrative process is in motion but we cannot issue your medical certificate until it is complete. Please see the CAA website and the following useful documents:

Extensions to the validity of medical certificates

The CAA Covid-19 exemptions that extended the validity of medical certificates have now ended. If you hold a PPL and your UK Class 2 medical certificate has a later LAPL expiry date then you may fly with LAPL privileges until that date, there is no need to advise the CAA. Please note that LAPL privileges exclude the use of any Instrument Rating. Self-declaration of medical fitness has been extended to pilots holding some UK licences. Please check the CAA publication list for full details. The CAA self-declaration form must be completed online via Cellma.

UK-EU Transition

As of the 1st January 2021 the UK left EASA. Pilots holding UK-issued licences who previously required EASA medicals should in future book a UK CAA medical on our booking site. Dr Emma Ramsay has gained approval to perform medical examinations for pilots holding EU-issued licences (EASA medicals) under Transport Malta. For these medicals please complete the following forms prior to your appointment and bring along your current medical certificate and EU licence:

Please contact us us if you have any questions regarding the above.
