All pilot licences require a medical certificate or medical declaration and while it is fine to have a trial flight
and some initial lessons you should avoid committing to a full training programme before having a medical check.
You may be worried that the medical will stop you from learning to fly. Common concerns usually include:
An aeromedical examiner (AME) will be able to offer you individual advice and will also be qualified to issue you
with a medical certificate following a medical examination.
AMEs are based all over the UK. Find one near you using our Find an AME
You can get a LAPL medical certificate from a GP that has signed-up to take part in the scheme.
Pilots wishing to train for either a National Private Pilot Licence or UK Private Pilot Licence may self-declare
their medical fitness, rather than having to visit a GP or AME. Details on this method and a link to the online
application form are available here: Medical requirements for private pilots.
