Sean Runacres

What does Sean do?

Dr Sean Runacres is a Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME) for CASA and is passionate about flying. He has been working on his Private Pilots Licence (PPL) for about 20 years and is very close to finally finishing it.

In addition to the Australian Certificate in Civil Aviation Medicine, which authorises him to assess pilots and air traffic controllers for CASA, he has completed the Advanced Practical Aviation Medicine course with Monash University.

This course was run within the Singaporean Air Force and provided practical experience and training in G-forces, spatial disorientation, night vision and ejection seat training.

Why Sean?

Sean understands the desire to fly and what is required to keep you in the air safely, for longer.

Sean knows a medical clearance is also putting food on the table, feeding the family and putting a roof over their head. While there will come a time when CASA declines to issue a medical clearance, Sean will work tirelessly to ensure that all avenues have been exhausted before this decision is made.

The Victorian Government has implemented Stage 4 restrictions across Metropolitan Melbourne. These restrictions require all non-essential business to close, unless exempted.

SAR Aviation Medicine does not provide essential services and is now closed until the restrictions are lifted.

Those that have made appointments will be contacted in due course.

We will re-open for business at the earliest opportunity.

If you have any questions, or are under a CASA audit, please feel free to contact us.

Update 6 Sep 2020: There have been no changes to the restrictions as advertised by the Victorian State Government at this time.
