At the Wiener Privatklinik, we offer our patients all aeromedical examinations under one roof, a feature that remains uniquely our own in Austria.
Information on aeromedical examinations
Wiener Privatklinik, the oldest aeromedical center in Austria, provides all aeromedical examinations in one center.
According to EASA Part-FCL, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology has authorised the Aeromedical Center of the Wiener Privatklinik to perform aeromedical examinations for initial and extended examinations for Medical Class I, Class II, Class III and Cabin Crew.
