Aviation Doc is still here – just a fresh new look with an improved website! Dr. Brendan Adams, Dr. Mindy Gautama, Dr. Scott Forsyth and the staff at YBW Aeromedical clinic are ready to assist you with your aviation and occupational medicine needs.
Attestation of Fitness dated after March 1, 2021 (Exemption NCR-062-2020) are no longer accepted for renewal of a medical certificate.
Our office is currently offering in-person medicals and telemedical appointments. More information can be found on Transport Canada’s website. https://tc.canada.ca/en/aviation/medical-fitness-aviation/covid-19-procedures-civil-aviation-medical-examinations-certificate-renewals
The fees for a virtual appointment are identical to in–person as the time commitment and legal liability are identical for us. Payment may be made (via telephone) to the reception staff following the appointment by giving credit card information. Your letter of renewal will then be mailed the same day. Carry this with you - you do not need a stamp in your Aviation Document Booklet.
As with many critical businesses – our office is following strict Covid prevention guidelines including temperature screening upon entry, barriers, limiting the waiting area to two people at a time, increased disinfection and anti-infection gowning/masking and hand sanitizing. This will slow us down somewhat but everyone’s safety is worth it – we must make this start-up successful and not have any infection events. Please bear with us as we do our utmost to protect your (and our) safety.
Dr. Adams, Dr. Gautama, Dr. Forsyth and the YBW Aeromedical Clinic are exclusively devoted to the world of aviation and safety critical medicine.
We understand pilots, flying and the special demands of caring for, and certifying those who work in this unique environment. Because of this, other safety critical industries have also chosen to use our services, both in medical assessment and addiction medicine treatment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
