Pilot Medicals NZ CAA
Dr Joanna Lapish is able to certify Class 1, 2 and 3 CAA medical certificates.

PLEASE!  Try to make your booking 30 days before your expiry date in case CAA require further investigations or I need to liaise with CAA for you.  If you see me up to 30 days before your expiry date, the CAA allows the date on your new certificate to be calculated from the expiry date. You will not lose this time by coming to see me early.  By leaving it too late your certificate may lapse before your next one is ready.

•    $400 First certificate (includes ECG and spirometry)
•    $300 Repeat certificate
•    $50 ECG
•    $70 Spirometry
•    $100 to do both CASA and CAA medical at same time

Pilot medicals elsewhere in upper North Island

I can come and do medicals elsewhere at upper North Island airfields for an additional fee of $500 (including GST).  If there is more than one pilot this cost can be shared amongst the pilots.  I need a suitable room for consulting, somewhere for pilots to produce a urine sample and a bed or couch for examination purposes.

Please phone reception to contact us if you are interested in arranging this.

Other costs:

CAA $121

Depending on what you need, and where you go, other costs are likely to be as below:

•    Lab tests approx. $41 (if you have had fasting lipids and glucose/HbA1c by your own GP in the last 11 months you can bring a printout of these results instead).
•    Optometrist report (class 1 and 3 only): $100–200
•    Audiologist report (not required for Class 2 if not IFR): $70–$15
•    Chest X-ray if any lung problems : approx. $100–150
•    Cardiologist report on ECG if there are abnormalities: approx $50
•    Other tests if any medical concerns.

CAA require that the CAA fee is paid prior to your appointment.  This can be done online via the CAA website. 

Please complete and bring the CAA Application form.  Do not sign the last page.


•    Bring – glasses, spare glasses, contact lenses (but come with contact lenses out).
•    Bring photo ID (eg drivers licence, passport)
