Gloster Aviation Medicals reopening on 1st June 2020

We are pleased to announce that Gloster Aviation Medicals will be reopening on 1st June following recent government and CAA guidance. We will initially be prioritising pilots who are unable to use CAA, FAA or other EASA state medical certificate exemptions and require a medical for their employment. We are required by the CAA to individually risk assess each client prior to their appointment. Please review our risk assessment and fill out our online questionnaire if you wish to make a booking. Our online booking site remains open.

Extensions to the validity of medical certificates

The CAA have introduced a number of exemptions which may extend the validity of medical certificates. The CAA is updating these exemptions on a regular basis. Please check their publication list.

The FAA have introduced an exemption which extends the validity of medical certificates that expire between 31st March and 31st May 2020 to 30th June 2020.

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