Medical Requirements

Regardless of your end-goal, before you fly solo for the first time you’ll need an aviation medical certificate.

For a Private Pilot License you’ll need a Category 3 or 1 Medical
For a Commercial Pilot License you’ll need a Category 1 Medical

It is a good idea to get this process underway early in your training. So long as you are in good health the exam should be no problem, however, there can be a delay in the processing of the medical. This medical examiner search tool on the Transport Canada website will help you locate a Civil Aviation Medical Examiner in your area.

Contact BP Aviation to help direct you to the local aviation medial examiner.
