EXPERIENCE

 

In 1997 I trained in Aviation Medicine at the RAF School of Aviation Medicine, RAF Farnborough and was successful in passing the Certificate of General Aviation Medicine. I have subsequently been a member of several Aviation Medicine related professional societies.

 

 

In April 2013 I was appointed as Consultant Advisor in Respiratory Medicine to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). This role is part of the Safety Regulatory Group of the CAA. I assess pilots (professional and non-professional) and air traffic controllers (ATCOs) for all EASA Classes (1, 2 and 3) Medical Certification related to respiratory medicine. The predominant issues I deal with are asthma, bronchial hyperreactivity, respiratory tract infections, sarcoidosis, general respiratory problems and the likelihood of a pilot or ATCO becoming incapacitated by virtue of their respiratory disease. They will be assessed by an aviation medical examiner (AME) regarding their licence certification and my role is to advise the AME as to the risks of incapacitation from respiratory disease.

 

Following the closure of the CAA Aeromedical Clinic in February 2016, pilots/ATCOs are now seen in my private practice in London. I am Consultant Advisor in Respiratory Medicine to the two London Aeromedical Centres, namely Centreline Aviation Medical Services in central London and Heathrow Medical Services.

 

In 2013 I was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society. Fellowship (FRAeS) is the highest grade attainable and is only bestowed upon those in the profession of aeronautics or aerospace who meet the requirements for Member and can also demonstrate that they meet one or more of the following criteria:
