To maintain aviation safety, all pilots and air traffic controllers must be in good health and have good hearing, vision and colour perception. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) therefore requires pilots and aircrew to obtain an aviation medicals certificate that’s specific to their role.
A number of SmartClinics General Practitioners are Australian Designated Aviation Medical Examiners (DAME) who can issue the above aviation medical certificates. Assessments are conducted via appointment only and must be booked in advance.
Please note that Aviation Medicals cannot be booked online. To book an appointment, please call our Annerley or Carseldine clinic reception teams.

We do not currently take online bookings for Aviation Medicals and they must be booked over the phone in advance as they take longer than a standard GP appointment. Our friendly reception teams are also happy to answer any questions you may have in regards to the different types of tests that are involved in the examination, the expected time of your consultation and assessment and any related costs. The will also be able to determine how long your specific aviation medical certificate will be valid for.
