Our Services

Pilots holding UK-issued licences

In March 2021 the CAA brought in the Cellma medical records system for pilots with UK-issued licences. Pilots who require a UK CAA medical must register on the CAA portal, fill out their application form online and pay the CAA submission fee (no fee for LAPL) that we previously collected on behalf of the CAA. This process can take a few days, therefore we advise pilots to attend to this in good time. Please see the CAA applicant guide for more information.

If you hold a PPL and your UK Class 2 medical certificate has a later LAPL expiry date then you may fly with LAPL privileges until that date, there is no need to advise the CAA. Self-declaration of medical fitness has been extended to pilots holding some UK licences. The CAA self-declaration form must be completed online via Cellma.

Pilots holding EU-issued licences

Dr Emma Ramsay has gained approval to perform medical examinations for pilots holding EU-issued licences (EASA medicals) under Transport Malta.

We are resuming bookings for EASA medicals from 29th July 2024.

For these medicals please complete the application form and mental health questionnaire prior to your appointment and bring them along with your current medical certificate, passport and EU licence.

Random drug and alcohol testing may be performed during the medical.
