Passing a medical examination is essential for a pilot's career, as physical and mental health is a critical safety factor that can influence every phase of flight.
In the European Union, there are two classes of medical certificates: Class 1 for commercial pilots (CPL/ATPL) and Class 2 for private or recreational pilots (LAPL & PPL).
Aviation Medical Examiners (AME) certify pilots from a medical perspective, requiring each pilot to meet specific medical standards based on the class of the required medical certificate.
The medical certificate is a statement from an EASA-authorized doctor, attesting that the applicant meets the medical requirements to operate an aircraft in flight.
All pilots, regardless of student or licensed status, must possess a valid medical certificate to exercise the privileges of their pilot's license.
Periodic medical examinations required for certification are conducted by designated aviation medical examiners.
The admission test for the ATPL course is designed to assess various skills and fundamental knowledge necessary to undertake pilot training.
Here's an overview of the main aspects covered in the admission test:
English Language Proficiency: Assessment of language proficiency in English, essential for communication in the aviation context.
Personality Traits: Examination of personality traits that may influence the pilot's performance and ability to work in a flight environment.
Basic Mathematics: Evaluation of basic mathematical skills relevant for quick calculations and decisions in flight.
Basic Physics: Examination of fundamental physics concepts relevant to understanding the principles of flight.
The test is conducted online for the convenience of aspiring pilots. It's important to note that the evaluation cost is 250 EUR and must be paid in advance.
Once the test is successfully passed, this amount will be deducted from the total cost of the ATPL course.
