Medical issues relating to Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers are found in Overseas Territories Aviation Requirement (OTAR) Part 67.  This OTAR Part sets out:

  • the requirements and procedures for the approval of appropriately qualified persons as Aeromedical Examiners and Aeromedical Ophthalmologists; and
  • the medical standards for the issue of medical certificates; and
  • the procedures for the issue, suspension and revocation of medical certificates.

There are three categories of medical certification:

(1) For Commercial Pilots Licence (Aeroplane & Helicopter) and Airline Transport Pilots Licence (Aeroplane & Helicopter);

(2) For Private Pilots Licence (Aeroplane & Helicopter) and Flight Engineer;

(3) For Air Traffic Controllers.

Supporting Overseas Territories Aviation Circulars (OTACs) give information on the criteria to be met for each category of Medical Certificate. Approved Aeromedical Examiners require specialist training in aviation medicine in addition to a general medical background (eg general practitioner, physician). Overseas Territory medical certificates can only be issued by Medical Examiners approved by a specific Territory.
