Medical Requirements CPL
Student Pilots must possess a valid medical certificate in order to exercise the privileges of their respective flying licenses. Before initiating flying training student must qualify for a CLASS II medical examination by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) standard Doctor.
To teach as a pilot you must undergo a We One Aviation Academy Medical examination. These are “general” medical and anyone with good general health should have no trouble passing.
If you are completing the Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence-Aero plane) you will need a Class 1 Aviation Medical issued by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). A Class 1 medical is only valid for 12 months, so we suggest you do not do this too far ahead of your course commencement.
If you have held a Class 1 Aviation Medical in your own country (and can evidence this) then you only need a Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Class 2 Aviation Medical to sit your CPL flight test.
If you were only conducting flight training for a Private Pilot Licence then a “Basic Class 2 Aviation Medical” (another category) is all you need.
Some of the medical tests you will need to undertake are an ECG (for the heart), an audio test, and an eye test.
Note: wearing glasses/ contact us lenses does NOT prevent you from transitory this Pilot Medical Exam. Your eyesight would need to be very poor before it becomes a problem.
For basic questions, you can contact us and we will try to help (we are not aviation medical experts and may not be able to assist) if your question is of a more complex nature contact us at your nearest aviation medical examiner.
Whilst the We One Aviation Academy medical can be done after arrival in (DGCA), it is always prudent to do it before you depart if there is a standard examiner not too far away from you.
There are a number of doctors overseas who are approved by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to conduct this examination.
