Class 2 Medicals
Templar Medical performs Class 2 medicals for private pilots of various disciplines from balloon and glider pilots to aerobatic and historic aircraft pilots.
Class 2 Initial
The initial consultation includes a complete exploration of your medical history. All medical conditions (past and present) should be disclosed and further information may be required from your General Practitioner. Therefore, should you have a significant medical history and in order to facilitate your medical, please provide evidence in the form of letters or reports from your medical records. This will prevent the requirement to write to your GP, which will cause further delay and expense.
The initial medical includes a consultation and full clinical examination. It also includes an ECG.
Please bring an up to date (2 years) CAA Form 162 Ophalmology completed by an optician/optometrist.
Class 2 Revalidation
An ECG is required at the first medical, at 40 years of age and not again until the age of 50, when the requirement is 2 yearly thereafter – unless clinically indicated.

The refractive vision criteria (opticians prescription) has been abandoned under EASA FOR CLASS 2 however applicants will still be required to meet acuity standards which are 6/12 in each eye separately and 6/9 using both eyes. If spectacles are worn EASA still requires copy of the vision prescription to be provided at the initial examination only; unless there is a change in vision or eye symptoms. Class 2 pilots are not required to bring an updated vision prescription to each medical examination although it is good practice to do so, since it also allows the AME to ensure any gross error in the prescription.
Pilots who do not meet the 6/12 (each eye) may still be able to gain certification if they pass a medical flight test as long as the good eye has normal vision.
Decrease in Medical Fitness
The CAA require licence holders to seek advice from their AME if they experience a decrease in their level of medical fitness which could impact on flight safety, or are taking medication which might interfere with the safe exercise of the privileges of their licence.
David is available for aviation medical consultations other than CAA examinations. We have access to a number of specialist private consultants e.g. Cardiologists, to whom we can refer promptly and seek specialist opinion in order to return the pilot to a ‘Fit’ status as soon as possible (see Affiliates page in 'About Us').
