Your AME 1 for class 1 and 2 pilots in Berlin & Brandeburg

Christian Schelske, MD

A medical examination for airworthiness (flight fitness) can only be performed by an aviation physician in accordance with the official fitness guidelines for applicants for or holders of pilot licenses. These officially recognized aeromedical experts can be found in Germany either in one of the eight Aeromedical Centers (AeMC) or in Class 1 and 2 aeromedical examination centers.

The purpose of the examination is to clarify whether the examinee is fit to fly. If so, an airman medical certificate of fitness may be issued. This, in turn, entitles the holder to exercise the rights under his pilot’s license.

As part of an airworthiness examination in Germany, in addition to a medical history and physical examination, instrumental as well as blood and urine tests are carried out. The minimum scope of examinations is prescribed by law and may be extended by the flight surgeon if indicated….
