Applicants should note that applications that have not completed prior to Brexit may no longer be valid within the EU. Please refer to the guidance documentation issued by the EU Commission here

The IAA also manages the system of medical assessments for the medical certification of flight and cabin crew and air traffic services personnel.

Before you embark on a career in aviation, either as a pilot (private or commercial), cabin crew, or in air traffic management you must first undergo a medical assessment. Visit the Aero-medical section for more details.
