Book a medical

 There are different categories depending on what license you are aiming for. Book an appropriate medical for the license you'd like to obtain; if planning on attaining the CPL, it is highly recommended to book a Category 1 Medical. All medicals (except the Category 4) must be done by a Transport Canada Medical Examiner.

The medical takes about an hour. Medical must be completed and processed by Transport Canada (takes 6-8 weeks) in order to go on your first solo flight, so make sure to do this right away!

CPL: Category 1
PPL: Category 3
RPP: Category 4*
