Pilots and air traffic controllers now apply for medical certificates online through CASA’s new medical records system, MRS.
Pilots and air traffic controllers will receive an email reminding them when their next medical is due. It will ask them to log in to MRS to start their application for a medical certificate. First-time users will answer questions about their medical history. This information will be retained in MRS and will be discussed with their designated aviation medical examiner.
Pilots and air traffic controllers also use MRS to pay the processing fee, find designated aviation medical examiners and track the progress of their application.
MRS was introduced to streamline the aviation medical process. It was designed based on feedback from people in the aviation community and medical professionals. As well as being consulted, the aviation community and medical professionals were also involved in testing the secure online system.
