Aviation medical appointments are available Mon-Fri. Our reception staff are fully trained in advising you of the tests that you will need to have as part of your application to hold a medical certificate to fly. Unfortunately none of the authorities in different countries are uniform in their requirements so it is always advisable to discuss what is necessary for your medical application prior to your appointment. When applying for a NZ certificate, where possible, your certificate will be issued to you on the same day as your appointment. Sometimes you will need further investigations, in which case, after your application has been assessed and completed, you will be advised to come to pick up your certificate.

FEES: The base fee we charge for a pilot medical examination is $310 (please see below for EASA fees). Additional tests such as a resting ECG ($65), plain spirometry ($85), or pre & post spirometry ($95) are extra. All prices include GST. Please note that these fees do not include the processing fees that each aviation authority may charge, or costs of any further specialist testing.

If you complete more than one medical examination on the day, we will apply a $50 discount for each subsequent medical.

Useful information regarding critical timeframes. Audios, labs and ECGs are valid for 90 days prior to the date of medical examination and applicants can apply up to 28 days before the expiry of their medical certificate. Otherwise, the expiry date will be relative to the date of medical examination.

For example, Mr Ruff Chops hold a Class 1 certificate that expires on 28 April 2018 and would like to renew it. If Mr Chops is examined on or after 1 April 2018 (but before 28 April), then his new Class 1 certificate will expire on 28 April 2019. If Mr Chops comes in sooner than 1 April 2018 (say 20 March), then the new certificate will expire on 20 March 2019.
