What You Need to Know About Aviation Medicals
Canadian pilots and air traffic controllers must have an aviation medical exam to work in Canadian or FAA-regulated air spaces. This exam can only be provided by physicians who are authorized by Transport Canada and able to determine fitness to fly.
What is an Aviation Medical Fitness Exam?
During this appointment, a Civil Aviation Medical Examination Report will be completed as well as routine tests such as an eye exam (optometry exam), a hearing test (audiogram), height & weight measurements, and blood pressure. An Electrocardiogram may also be required and you may be provided with a requisition for this test.
