We’re setting up a clinical case conference panel to help pilots and air traffic controllers understand how we make aviation medicine decisions.
About the panel
The panel will give pilots and air traffic controllers a way to meet with:
- senior CASA aviation medicine representatives
- Designated Aviation Medicine Examiners (DAMEs)
- treating medical practitioners.
You can ask us to organise a meeting if:
- you have a complex medical condition(s) that you would like to discuss before we consider your application for a medical certificate
- we denied your application for a medical certificate and you want to understand why
- we have, or are about to, place conditions on your medical certificate that you would like to discuss
- we have suspended or cancelled your medical certificate and you would like more information about why
- you have asked us to reconsider a decision under the aviation medicine rules (Civil Aviation Safety Regulation 67.190).
In some cases, we may approach you about a meeting. We’ll do this in agreement and consultation with your DAME.
Stay tuned for more information about how to request a meeting with the panel.
Appealing a decision
The clinical case conference panel will be an informal place to discuss your personal circumstances. A discussion with the panel can help you understand more about why we have made our decisions.
The panel cannot consider complaints or appeals. Find out how you can make a complaint or objection about a medical decision.
