Business description

Project Datolite offers various medical examinations, primarily for pilots and

airline personnel. The assessments include, but are not limited to, Class I and II for pilots, and Class III for ATCOs; fit-to-fly and airside driver examinations; and associated revalidations and renewals.
The company generates supplementary revenue through medical examinations for other activities, such as driving.
Operating in a high-barrier-to-entry market, the business has retained its
prominence through numerous approvals. These include the CAA and EASA,
enabling the examinations to meet the regulatory requirements set out by
international governing bodies.
Our clients are now offering the company for sale to facilitate the majority
shareholder’s retirement plans, and to encourage growth utilising the resources of a new owner. Offers invited.
