Here is a link to the UK Cabin Crew standards

The entire medical process can normally be completed within 1 hour.

At the renewal assessments under 50 years old a clinical examination is usually required if there has been a change in health or if the previously declared medical history is not available.

 

Cabin Crew must also seek the advice of an AME (Aeromedical Examiner) when they become aware of any decrease in their medical fitness which may affect their ability ot do their job.

 

Having previous worked for Emirates Airlines I have personally licensed over 3000 cabin crew and continue to do Cabin Crew medicals for British Airways, Jet2.com, Easy-jet, Monarch Airways and Thompson. I have been part of several hundred medical boards allowing crew to fly who have previously not attained the desired standards.

 

Medical Standards

 

The UK CAA have produced a UK Alternative Means of Compliance with respect to the EASA Cabin Crew regulations in which, unless clinically indicated, a heart tracing (ECG) and an Audiogram are not required.

 

Colour Vision testing

Cabin crew work is not colour critical however colour vision testsing is still required under EASA rules. Those failing the colour vision testing therefore will be asked to do a trade test which is normally the SEP (Safety Equipment and Procedures) training. Once successfully completed unrestricted licenses will be issued.

 

 

There is a form to complete followed by a clinical assessment and then printing of the certificate.

Chaperones are welcomed but let us know at the time of booking if you wish us to provide one.

If you have any queries regarding your level of fitness send us a message through the contact page.
