EASA Class 1 and EASA Class 2
Dr Mark Sandler
Aviation Medical Examiner
I have been a GP in Hertfordshire for 29 years, having qualified in medicine at Sheffield University in 1984 my interest in aviation was fuelled by my late father-in-law who flew for many decades in classics such as Viscounts/Heralds/707/146 Avro RJ .
I am an experienced AME having trained in Aviation Medicine initially at RAF Farnborough in 1989 and proceeded to obtain a distinction in the Advanced Aviation Medicine training course in 2003.
I work with all major airlines including easyJet, BA,
Virgin Atlantic, TUI, Norwegian Air and Ryanair.

Class One Initial
Your Initial Medical must be performed by a registered Aeromedical Centre in central London or Gatwick, we can point you in the right direction, and when it comes to your renewal, we can contact you to arrange an appointment with us.
A class one medical consists of a thorough health check, urine sample test, visual examination and blood test, they usually take around one hour to complete. Additional tests as required by EASA can include an ECG and audiogram.
A class 2 medical is needed to fly privately and your instructor will advise you when this is needed, usually just prior to going solo. This takes around an hour to complete including much of that detailed for class 1 status above.
If you are a student pilot or just considering a career as a pilot and want the peace of mind to know that you will pass the medical after training, a shorter medical exam can be done, this costs £100.
