Airport Medical Services has been established since 1988 undertaking pilot licence medicals and other aviation medicals as well as general occupational health work. It is run by Dr Ken Edgington ably assisted by Dr Chris King and, until recently, by Dr Tony Goodwin and their secretarial staff. Dr Edgington and Dr Goodwin have had extensive experience in aviation and aviation medicine in the Armed Forces, with major airlines and Dr Edgington joined the practice from his last senior appointment as Chief Medical Officer of the UK CAA.


Dr Chris King has had his Class One stamp for many years and is in practice in Sussex, is involved in emergency GP programmes and has a PPL, flying from Goodwood. The series of articles he has written recently for BALPA's magazine, The Log, can be found in the Articles part of our website. We wish to thank BALPA and the Editor of the Log for their kind permission to reproduce them here.

We have accounts with most of the major airlines and so professional pilots fees are often charged directly to the airline, avoiding the hassle of expense claims.

Airport Medical Services is conveniently situated near London Gatwick Airport in Horley, about one mile from the North and South Terminals. The local bus routes 20 and 100 serve the Airport and Horley and provide a frequent service. Horley railway station is a five minute walk from our Practice. Gatwick is at junction 9 of the M23 Motorway and has rapid train links to London’s Victoria station from the South Terminal.


Please note that the Post Code is inaccurate for our address, you need to continue a further 75 yards, we are opposite Ringley Avenue.

The Practice also has facilities at Heathrow at the Arora International on the Bath Road opposite the Compass Centre, UB7 0DG. At present this service is available one day per week, normally on Wednesdays. Appointments are arranged through our main office at Gatwick (as above).

The Hotel has a secure basement car park that is free for the first 2 hours. Buses from Heathrow stop at the Hotel - enquire at the Central Area Bus Station.

We can undertake both commercial and private pilots medical examinations not only for the UK CAA but also many overseas authorities. In addition we act as Medical Adviser for a number of airlines, providing a range of services from Initial Entry Medical for flight deck, cabin and ground staff to Invalid Passenger Clearances, medical policy, examining sick staff, immunisations etc. We also act as Medical Advisers to the International Federation of Airline Pilots Associations (IFALPA), the Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators and to the Royal Aeronautical Society.
