About us

The British Medical Pilots Association was founded in 1966 to provide a forum for academic and social interchange between professional colleagues with an interest in aviation. The Association aims to promote improved knowledge of aviation medicine and high standards of safety in the aviation environment.

Membership is open to any member of the medical, dental, or veterinary community, qualified or in training, who holds or has held a flying licence.  Civil  Aviation Authority approved  AME’s  are also eligible.

Subscription is currently £15 annually on the 1st April, preferably by bankers order, or by cheque payable to the British Medical Pilots Association. This fee is waived for students during training towards their primary professional qualification.

The Association is a corporate member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) and a member of the General Aviation Awareness Council (GAAC). Close links are also maintained with our sister organisations in France and Germany, L’Association Aeromedical and The German Flying Physicians. Members are encouraged to attend European meetings.

The association currently holds three meetings a year. There is also a brief history of the BMPA available, including details of officers of the association and past meetings.
