Gloster Aviation Medicals Open

Gloster Aviation Medicals remains fully operational following recent government and CAA guidance. All bookings should be made as usual through our online booking site. Please review our standard operating procedure during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are required by the CAA to risk assess each client prior to their appointment in order to operate in the safest way possible. All clients will need to fill out our online risk assessment questionnaire. Pilots requiring EASA medicals will also need to download and complete a CAA MED160 application form to bring with them to the medical. Please see instructions about how to fill out this form. We will not be printing MED160 forms as we did previously, in order to minimise time spent in the office.

Extensions to the validity of medical certificates

The CAA have introduced a number of exemptions which may extend the validity of medical certificates. Please check their publication list for full details.

Self-declaration of medical fitness has been extended to pilots holding some EASA licences, see CAA publication ORS4 No. 1421 . The CAA self-declaration form must completed online and is available here.

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