LAPL Medicals

 LAPL Medicals

The LAPL was introduced to the UK on 17th September 2012 with the implementation of EASA. It will replace the NPPL for flying EASA registered aircraft. Usually a EASA LAPL can be conducted by your GP (who has access to your medical records). However, sometimes your GP might feel that your case warrants the expertise of an AME.

The medical assessment

This consists of a clinical examination in addition to a medical declaration; usually conducted by your GP. In cases where there are significant medical conditions and/or vision issues the CAA require formal referral from your GP to an AME, via a 'GP Referral Form' (Downloadable from this page).

The CAA Form CAP 1127 P 'A quick guide for Pilots' provides all the information you need regarding the porcess, (Downloadable from this page).


LAPL Initial/Revalidation £175.00


Validity periods

Under the age of 40 a LAPL medical certificate must be revalidated every 5 years (or until 42nd birthday if earlier). Over the age of 40 it must be revalidated every 2 years.


Certificates may be revalidated within 45 days of the expiry date if you wish to continue exercising the privileges of your licence

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').

I have just renewed my LAPL medical with David Carey - all very straight forward, sensible and efficient making it a relaxed and unusually pleasant experience considering it is a medical examination. I would have no hesitation in recommending him."

Howard Rutherford. MB BS FRCS, Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon (Retired)

Templar Medical provides a highly professional and courteous service for aviator’s medicals.  David is able to put you at ease explaining the reasoning behind each of the tests and the outcome of each phase of the examination.  I have no doubt the screening conducted by David is valuable as a monitor of one’s general health and would detect the onset of many potential problems.  I look forward to returning to David for my future medicals and would highly recommend his services to fellow aviators.”

His Knowledge, friendly manor, flexibility and great value for money made him the easy choice for my aviation medical needs moving forward.”
