To maintain the validity of the medical certificate, certificate holders must undergo routine medical examinations as required depending on the class of certificate and the duration of the medical clearance.
Certificate holders are required to undergo routine medical examinations periodically, depending on the class of certificate and the duration of the medical clearance.
Upon completion of the routine medical examination, the Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) or the Aeromedical Center (AeMC) determines whether the certificate holder's health remains suitable for flying (fit) or if any medical conditions have arisen that warrant an assessment as unfit.
In cases where the Aviation Medical Examiner or the Aeromedical Center renders a decision of 'unfit,' the certificate holder has the option to appeal the decision to the Danish Transport Authority. In certain instances, the matter may need to be referred to the Danish Transport Authority, which will make a final determination. This is typically the case when a Class 1 medical clearance holder develops specific health issues, such as cancer or heart problems.
However, if a Class 2 medical clearance holder encounters similar specific health problems, it will generally be the responsibility of the Aviation Medical Examiner or the Aeromedical Center to make a determination, with guidance from the Danish Transport Authority.
If it is deemed necessary to conduct additional examinations to assess an applicant's medical fitness, the Aviation Medical Examiner, the Aeromedical Center, or the Danish Transport Authority may request such examinations.
In cases where an applicant does not fully meet the requirements for medical fitness for the relevant medical clearance class, the Aviation Medical Examiner, the Aeromedical Center, or the Danish Transport Authority may impose the necessary restrictions on the medical clearance.
If the medical issues that an applicant may have are deemed to jeopardize the safe exercise of the privileges associated with the relevant certificate, the application may be denied, and a medical clearance will not be issued thereafter.
