The CAA requires pilots to have regular medical check-ups. These are essentially a simple physical exam that you get from a general practitioner doctor who is certified by the CAA as an aero-medical examiner. For the initial issuance of a medical certificate you shall visit a certified aero-medical examination centre and by the end of the examination you will get the certificate. The renewal of the certificate is done by certified aero-medical examiners every 12-60 months depending on the age of the pilot and the certificate’s class which is issued according to the type of the license (private, commercial etc.)
If you’re going to do your Private Pilot Licence, you need a Class 2 Flight Medical. If you are planning on going through to CPL, then it’s a good idea to do a Class 1 Flight Medical at the outset so that you know you can get one before committing yourself to the training and expense of the commercial course. Aviation Pilot Training advises all our students to get the Flight Medical at the beginning of the course to see if you are medically fit to continue with your training.

No. You only need vision that is correctable with glasses or contact lenses.

An Introductory Flight will give you the chance to pilot an airplane or helicopter for the first time. This will help you decide if you really want to pursue a pilot’s license plus it will give you a knowledge base for the ground studying. A 35-minute flight in the helicopter or 1 hour flight in the aeroplane is usually enough and with proper guidance from a Flight Instructor you will be able to discover the magic of flight.
You can start your private pilot’s license training at the age of 16 and you can have a license at the age of 17. Your commercial pilot’s license training can start at the age of 17 and you can get the license at the age of 18.
