SAAA along with all stakeholders in the aviation community were invited to make submissions in respect of CASA’s current review of Aviation Medical certifications.
SAAA naturally delivered a submission. In summary, we have been and continue to advocate like many others both here and in other countries for a system that is more suited for private pilots irrespective of whether they may be operating to VFR, NVFR, IFR or hold other license categories or endorsements. In developing our submission, we have been fortunate to draw on the expertise of many of our Members with a variety of backgrounds from highly qualified and experienced aviators and professional pilots, to those with medical and DAME experience. We thank all of our Members who contributed.CASA reported receiving around 160 submissions from pilots, industry associations, flying organisations and medical professionals. Those submissions where the author has provided permission for publication are now available on the CASA website from the link below. SAAA’s submission is included.
