CASA Aviation Medical

CASA Aviation Medicals for Class 1, 2, 2 (Basic) & 3 Medicals are conducted by Dr Dan Gwynne. Pricing is dependant on Class and any additional testing or assessment required. Please contact reception for further information.

Dr Dan Gwynne is a CASA Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) and a Delegate for the issue of Class 2 medicals. Certificates for Class 2 renewals can be issued directly following completion of assessment. He is also a member of The Australasian Society of Aerospace Medicine.

The assessment generally takes approximately 60 minutes to complete. However, follow up appointments may be required to complete the assessment depending on whether further documentation, investigations or specialist referral is required.

Initial assessment:

If your attending for an initial application the assessment can be quite detailed particularly if applying for Class 1 or 3 medicals. Hence, it is necessary to ensure you have documentation of ALL of your relevant history and any recent investigations at your appointment. For existing patients this information should be on our records, but for new patients you will need to bring this information to your consult either on paper or by emailing to reception@nautilushealth.com.au prior to your appointment.

Initial assessments can take up to 28 days to be assessed by CASA following submission.

Prior to your appointment:

Ensure you have an active Aviation Reference Number (ARN)

Ensure you have completed the online questionnaire on the MRS Portal

This is essential for the expedient conduct of your assessment and serves as a reminder to bring appropriate documentation to address any medical issues identified.

If you are uncertain how to fill some of the questions don’t be too concerned. We will review your responses during the consult and amend as required. However, do not withhold any information as this may jeopardise your assessment approval or may result in revocation of your certificate in the future.
