NEW CAA Cellma Portal:

We hope that you are all well!
 
Could all Class 1, Class 2, Class 3 and LAPL pilots, PLEASE make sure they sign up to the new CAA portal: https://portal.caa.co.uk/
 
You will all need to sign up to the CAA new Cellma portal in order to book your medical with us. This system has been effective from 29th March 2021.
 
Applicants will need to apply and pay for their medical via their CAA Customer Portal and new ‘Medical’ service, rather than filling in the paper MED160 application form. You can find the latest information and a helpful Cellma Applicant User Guide on the CAA website: https://www.caa.co.uk/medical/.
 
From initial sign up of the portal, it takes around 10 days for the FCL to approve you.
 
(We have become aware that many pilots did not know the new system was coming into effect)
 
Thank you.

A Medical History

You are required to file a medical history about yourself, it is a medium length electronic application form and called the MED160.  This is now to be completed via Cellma and the appropriate fee paid (No fee for LAPL medicals.)

If you are having an initial medical, you will need to fill out an ophthalmology application form, this is called a MED162. You will need to go to an optician first, to get this form completed. Please note that you can download this proforma by clicking on the button below:

To accompany this Ophthalmology form and make the process as easy as possible, we have devised a letter which is useful to take along with you to your opticianOptician letter for MED162
