Aviation Medicine

In order to maintain valid their licenses, pilots and air traffic controllers are required to undergo periodical medical examinations. The Aeromedical Section (AMS) of CAA supervises the Aeromedical Centers (AMC) and the Aeromedical Examiners (AME). It is also the first instance for reviews in case of differences among pilots/controllers and AMEs.

The regulation of the medical aspects of civil aviation within the CAA is performed by the Aeromedical Section (AMS).

The AMS sets and implements medical requirements for transport and commercial airplane and helicopter pilots, flight engineers , private airplanes and helicopters pilots, hot-air balloon, glider, microlight aircraft, hang-glider, paraglider pilots, parachuting and cabin crew, and the air traffic controllers.

The aeromedical examination determines the fitness of aviation personnel to perform safely their professional duties. It has a major importance as contributes to flight safety, at the same time helps to preserve pilots' health for their flying carrier.

Medical certification is performed in strict compliance with the national and international requirements.

Regulation No. 1/2010 (JAR-FCL 3) sets out the requirements for the medical certification of flight crew personnel. It also requires the establishment of an AMS within the CAA.

Student / Private pilots require a Class 2 Medical Certificate, professional licence holders require a Class 1 Medical Certificate.

The CAA AMS is responsible for the initial issue of Class 1 Medical Certificates and for the initial review of any limitation, variation, suspension or denial of a Class 1 or 2 Medical Certificate.

Reports on all medical examinations carried out on Kosovo-licensed flight crew, including those conducted by JAR-FCL Aeromedical Examiners outside Kosovo, will be submitted to the CAA AMS for assessment for medical certification purposes.

In cases of doubt, or incomplete information of a particular matter, the AMS may require further specialist information to be provided by an applicant.
