Aviation medicals are conducted via appointment only as information needs to be obtained prior and investigations ordered as needed. Bookings will need to be made by phoning reception. Please notify reception of your ARN (Aviation Reference Number) and the Class of Medical (1, 2 or 3) for which you are applying. Further information can then be forwarded to you regarding necessary ancillary tests to be done prior to your appointment.
Aviation medicals and associated pathology and specialist tests are not covered by Medicare. This may not be the case if your regular Doctor orders a blood test which is deemed necessary for your general medical care. All investigations within 3 months of your aviation medical are deemed valid. Please bring these results with you or ask for a copy to go directly to your DAME.
