Any other advice?

A urine sample will be required. so please ensure a reasonable fluid intake before attending. It is  good advice to avoid high-g or aerobatic flying, helicopter flying or vigorous exercise for 24 hours before your medical. Any of these can in some circumstances produce falsely-abnormal urine tests.

Simple extra heart beats on the ECG can course anxiety and delays. Avoiding excess caffeine can reduce the risk of having extra heart beats. Minor abnormalities on the ECG can also occur following large meals, and so should be avoided.

Audiograms

For pilots requiring a audiogram please make this known when making your booking so that we can make a longer booking to allow time  for the audiogram. This will be performed on site at the time of the medical.

Chaperone Policy

A chaperone is available for all consultations and examinations. If you do know in advance of your appointment that you wish for a chaperone please make it known at the time of booking to avoid any delays. A copy of the chaperone policy can be downloaded from the following link.


Casework

As all casework is now performed by the AME and not the CAA, this will incur a fee. This will be charged at £50 per quarter hour. The majority of simple cases will be able to be completed within this period, however for more complicated cases this may require more time. If it is greater than £50 then the pilot will be informed before proceeding.
