It is imperative that you are medically fit to fulfil such an important position.

Twas the night before Christmas (actually 2 nights, but who’s counting) and the website booking system and email system went down

To add insult to injury, the website development team went on holiday the day before…

If you are having problems booking, please call on 0481 812 837 or email at our temporary account saraviationmedicine@gmail.com

We will be responding to emails and phone calls everyday, except Christmas day and New Years Day (There’d be a reason for that – but dont tell CASA!).

Otherwise, have a happy festive season, enjoy your flying and we look forward to seeing you in 2022!
