Online services

Get your applications in early – our offices will close from 25 December 2021 to Monday 3 January 2022 inclusive.

You can continue to apply for some permissions online through myCASA during this time. These include:

  • Initial licence applications for RPL/PPL/CPL
  • Licence reprint (9R)
  • Flight review
  • Transfer of Aircraft Registration
  • Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate
  • Medical Records System (MRS)
  • Aviation reference number (ARN) creation
  • myCASA account creation and linking to ARN
  • Remote pilot licence applications
  • Notification of an Aviation or General English Language Proficiency assessment
  • Renewal of Remote Operators Certificate (ReOC) without changes
  • Commercial drone registration and accreditation
  • Fireworks display notifications.

Some services may require administrative support to complete the process. This will be completed after the CASA Christmas shutdown period. Technical support issues should be lodged online and will be actioned when we reopen.
