Aviation Medicals

Dr Jacques de Groot is a CASA Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) with an Australian Certificate of Civil Aviation Medicine (ACCAM) from Monash University in Melbourne.

As a DAME Dr de Groot is certified to perform:

  • CASA Aviation Medicals for all Class 1, 2 and 3 licence holders.
  • Both initial and renewal aviation medicals.
  • For Commercial and Private Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers.

The Actual Aviation Medical:

Aviation Medicals at Ranges Medical involve a review of the examinee’s medical history and a physical examination. This begins with a brief appointment with one of our Practice Nurses followed by an appointment with Dr Jacques de Groot.

Additional tests may be required depending the examinee’s age and CASA requirements. These tests may include; Blood tests (eg. lipids and blood sugar), ECG and Audiometry (hearing test). 
We have the facilities to perform some of these tests in-house at Ranges Medical. Other examinations can also be organised by referral to external providers, such as local audiology services and CASA designated Ophthalmologist or Optometrist. Blood tests can be organised prior to the appointment so the results will be available at the time of the examination.

Fees (Inc. GST)

Initial Medical $220.00

Renewal Medical $220.00

ECG $77.00
