The Medical Examination
If you decide to start flight training, it is advisable to have your pilot medical examination performed at an early stage to confirm that you are fit. Legally, you cannot fly solo until you are in possession of a valid medical certificate. There is nothing worse than having your instructor deciding that you are ready to go solo and then finding that you have to wait to have your medical.
The youngest age at which you can have your pilot medical examination is fifteen years and six months – there is no upper age limit. Each examination comprises a medical questionnaire, physical examination and, if necessary according to the schedule, an ECG and/or audiogram. A urine test is always required.
You should allow between forty-five and ninety minutes for the examination. Unless there are any specific queries, the medical certificate is usually issued at the time of examination.
