UK CAA and EASA Cabin Crew Medicals

Please note that EASA medicals are currently only carried out at our AYR clinic.


If you are planning to become a cabin crew member, you must hold a cabin crew medical attestation.

At Scotland Aeromedical, our AME’s are on hand to ensure that you can receive your valid cabin crew medical report. This certificate is normally valid for 5 years. We have years of experience in performing cabin crew medicals, and each medical can be booked and arranged to suit you best. Get in touch using the form to book your  Cabin Crew Medical today.

UK CAA and EASA Cabin Crew medicals

All operating cabin crew must hold a valid cabin crew medical report and Scotland Aeromedical can perform initial and renewal Cabin Crew medical examinations and assessments.

All new cabin crew require an initial medical examination before commencing cabin crew training. Periodic cabin crew medical assessments are required for all cabin crew at intervals of no more than 60 months. Cabin Crew periodic medical assessments carried out up to 45 days prior to the expiry date of the previous medical report will be valid for up to 60 months from that expiry date. Assessments carried out more than 45 days before the expiry date of the previous medical report will be valid for up to 60 months from the date of the medical assessment.

How long will the Cabin Crew medical report be valid for?

The Cabin Crew medical report will usually be valid for 60 months (5 years). However, more frequent medical examinations or assessments may be required in certain circumstances, such as the crew member having a medical condition requiring regular surveillance.

Additional medical examinations or assessments may be necessary if:

  1. a cabin crew member returns to work following a prolonged period of illness.

  2. there is any doubt about the continued fitness of a cabin crew member.



Do cabin crew hold a licence and medical certificate?

No. Cabin crew will have a cabin crew 'attestation', not a licence, and a cabin crew 'medical report', not a medical certificate. However, they are required to have a medical report with a 'fit' assessment before operating as cabin crew and usually before commencing cabin crew training.

What tests will be performed at my Cabin Crew medical?


At the Cabin Crew medical, one of our AMEs will review your medical history and will perform a medical examination to check that everything is functioning correctly.  The examination will cover areas such as vision, hearing, lungs, heart, blood pressure, stomach, limbs and nervous system. You will need to provide a urine sample for testing.



What do I need to bring to the Cabin Crew medical appointment?

  1. Signed client consent form – this will be emailed to you with your appointment confirmation.

  2. Photo identification (e.g. passport or driving licence).

  3. Completed but unsigned application form - this will also be emailed to you.

  4. If this is a renewal medical, your last Cabin Crew medical report, even if expired.
