AVMED Changes

avmed notice

Changes planned from early May

We are making changes to the way in which we provide you with information related to aviation medicine from early May. This will see all existing aviation medicine content transferred from where it is currently located to sit within our main corporate website, casa.gov.au

While the site will look different to how it currently does, all of the information you access regularly will still be available. As part of this process we are reviewing all information to ensure it is up-to-date and relevant and to ensure that information is easy to find.

It is also important to note that the Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) and Designated Aviation Ophthalmologist (DAO) searches will continue to work as they currently do.

We will provide more specific information through alerts on the current site leading up to the transition and through direct communications following the launch of the new site.

For all inquiries concerning aviation medicine, please email avmed@casa.gov.au

Inverell North (YIVO) Flyaway

What a great day!

The Crew

7 Aircraft. 19 Crew.  20 vintage and antique cars, great flying weather, hospitable hosts.IMG_0740

Thanks to Captain Mike Barnier for organising a great day for the enthusiastic club members.  Between 9.30 am and 10.30 am the aircraft departed for Inverell North airstrip, a private runway on the eastern side of Inverell.

IMG_0746Mike had organised transport to the Inverell RSM Club for lunch and then back to the airstrip to view our host Bob and Susanna’s  collection of cars.  Fantastic! The shed/hangar alone brought a tear to a few of the assembled enthusiasts.



IMG_0751It was a slightly less calm flight home to Gunnedah. We were all back by 4pm for cool Coke on the verandah of the Clubhouse.


Thanks to all for reinforcing why we love to fly.
