CASA Audit

The CASA Audit letters provide details of what is required for the next certification. Please ensure that you review the letter when performing the medical for a pilot on an audit to ensure that all information requested is provided to CASA so as to reduce any delays and frustration during the renewal process.

No ARN- No Medical

We have recently had a few issues when online medical applications are performed where the applicant has not yet requested or received an ARN.

While it is not possible to submit these applications, they will be accessible in your account. After 3 months of the examination being raised the file will automatically “Suspend” and disappear from your account.

If this occurs the file is inaccessible within MRS (including us).

Please ensure that all of your pilots have an ARN before commencing the examination process.
