LAPL health check-up


The Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) is a European (EASA) pilot’s licence. This licence allows you to fly a glider or balloon, for example. It comes with a mandatory medical certificate. Since July 1, 2015 this also applies to drone operators. The LAPL medical certificate is obtained automatically after Class 1 or 2 medical examinations.


During the health check-up, the KLM Health Services medical team makes a detailed analysis of your medical history. The medical exam itself contains the following elements:

  • Physical examination
  • Urine test
  • Height, weight, BMI, and blood pressure measurement
  • (Extensive) eye test and colour vision test
  • Audiogram
  • If indicated, additional tests (e.g. ECG, blood test, pulmonary function test)

If our medical examiner finds it necessary, our aviation medicine specialists (cardiologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, ENT specialists) are consulted. The exact contents of a medical examination differ per type and class of medical certificate, rating and the age of the pilot.


It is possible to (and easy to arrange) a specific LAPL aeromedical examination so as to obtain your LAPL medical certificate. The period of validity of the certificate is age dependent:

  • Up to 40 years: 60 months
  • From 41 years: 24 months

What we offer
