All pilots require a medical examination prior to gaining a licence and regular examinations thereafter to retain their licence. The exact requirements vary with age and licence.
The Medical Examination is conducted by Designated Aviation Medical Examiners (DAMEs) who have been authorised by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to conduct medical examinations required by Airservices Australia. The medical standards for the ARFF have been determined in conjunction with CASA Directorate of Aviation Medicine. The medical examinations determine the applicant’s suitability for ARFF duties and eligibility for membership of the Authority’s Superannuation Scheme.
Dr Daniel Black is a CASA approved ophthalmologist who is able to conduct the examination required for the Class 1 medical which is required for commercial purposes.
Please book your appointment as early as possible are the clinics are frequently booked out for 4-6 weeks.
