At the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) we regulate and implement medical requirements for professional flight crew, private pilots, air traffic controllers and cabin crew.

A step-by-step guide to the classes of medical certificates for pilots and air traffic controllers and how to apply can be found in this overview, which also has information on obtaining a cabin crew medical report.

We also oversee the approval and continued certification of Aeromedical Centres (AeMCs) and an Aeromedical Examiner (AME) network.

Our medical records system - Cellma

The CAA medical records system (Cellma) can be accessed as a service via the CAA Customer Portal. This online system has replaced all existing paper-based application forms and also allows applicants to view their own medical record and to track the progress of applications and referrals to the Authority.
