 In order to fly a glider, you must have a certain level of medical fitness, and you need to say what that status is. There are three options:

         A. I declare that I satisfy the medical requirements displayed on the medical Declaration of Physical Fitness form (see below), and am fit to fly a glider

         B. I will be assessed by a GP against the Medical Practitioner’s Certificate of Fitness for the issue of a private motor vehicle driver’s licence; (see below) or

         C. I Hold a valid CASA Medical Certificate

All medical forms for adult declarations can be found AT THIS LINK

If you are under 18, you MUST download this paper declaration form and have it signed by parent/guardian, and email it to returns@glidingaustralia.org.

If you are self-declaring your status a form is not required unless you are under 18yo (see below).

If you choose Option B or C then you MUST provide the GFA with a copy of your medical documents - this can be done either by uploading the scanned documents using the File Upload button below, or by emailing the documents to returns@glidingaustralia.org.
