Renewal of Gyroplane Registration

It is a requirement of CASA that all gyroplanes are registered with ASRA with current ownership details and all major modifications are kept up-to-date.

Current members will be emailed a registration invoice after October each year. The invoice will have a link to the ASRA member administration database where payments can be made online using credit card or EFT. Members not having internet access will receive an invoice in the post.


Gyroplane Registration Change of Ownership

All gyroplane registrations for transfer of ownership can be performed online by an ASRA Technical Advisor or, be notified via the Gyroplane Registration, Renewal & Transfer Form 06, and post/email your completed form with a current image of a close-up side profile of your gyroplane to the ASRA Registrar. Payment options are on the form.


Major Modifications
It is a requirement of CASA that all major modifications are signed off by an ASRA Technical Advisor and recorded.

Only an ASRA Technical Advisor has the database permissions to update specifications of a gyroplane record in the ASRA member administration database. So once a TA has approved any major modifications to your gyro ensure that they have updated the specifications of your gyro in the registration record under your entry in the ASRA member administration database.

OR

Post the completed form signed by the TA with a current image of a close-up side profile of your gyroplane to the ASRA Registrar.


Medical forms

ASRA, under CASA regulations, requires pilots to provide evidence that they are medically fit to operate a gyroplane and hold a pilot certificate.

The medical standard for gyroplane pilots flying solo is the equivalent to that required for an Australian motor vehicle driver’s licence.

The ASRA Membership Application has a medical section that must be completed and signed by all members before flying as a solo pilot or student pilot in a gyroplane. This medical declaration is a copy of the F011A.

This F011 medical section is in 2 parts, section A & B. If you have had, or are currently suffering from, any of the medical conditions listed in Section A on the form you must not sign the self-assessment declaration. Instead you are required to have your doctor sign F011 Section B. Form 11 can be downloaded here.

Pilots with a passenger carrying endorsement or instructor ratings cannot use the medical section on the membership form. Instead you must submit either a current CASA Class 2 Pilot Medical Certificate or an ASRA Form 10 Medical Examiners Certificate.

The examining doctor must be made aware that the medical is to be carried out to the Commercial Drivers Standard and that its purpose is for Sports Aviation, not Commercial Aviation use. Therefore the Commercial Medical Examiners Certificate is not acceptable to ASRA on its own. The Form 10 must be signed by your doctor.

Updated ASRA medical certification must be undertaken at least every 4 years for persons under 40 years of age, and every 2 years for those 40 years of age or over. Specific medical conditions may require more frequent certification and under certain circumstances “for cause” examinations may be required.

Members with internet access can use the online ASRA member administration database to keep their medicals up to date. With the exception of the solo medical, all other signed medicals will need to be scanned and uploaded to the member’s database record using the procedure in the Online Database Manual available from here (add link).

Alternatively you can post or email completed medical forms to the ASRA Registrar.

Contact the ASRA Registrar to clarify any issues.


Public Liability Insurance

All ASRA members who are pilots are covered for $1,000,000 public liability. Pilots with passenger carrying endorsements have a further $250,000 cover for passengers.

ASRA acts as the broker for QBE and collects the premiums as a mandatory levy added to annual membership fees.

Public Liability cover for more than $1,000,000 may be available through QBE on a case by case basis.

In addition, QBE offers hull insurance for individual gyroplanes on a case by case basis.

NB: All pilots should be aware that all Public Liability Insurance claims are subject to the pilot being fully compliant with the ASRA Operations manual at the time of the claim.

ASRA’s Aviation Legal Liability Policy information and Certificate of Currency are available via the links below.
