Medical Examiners

A medical certificate is required before flying solo. Validity periods are dependant on age, i.e. Up to 30 every 5 years, 30-49 every 2 years, 50-64 every year, and six-monthly thereafter. Your appointment should be made directly with the doctor, (ask for a class 2 pilot's medical). It is advisable to book several weeks in advance.
