The Doctor is In At Bancroft


Pilots fly in for all kinds of reasons and now they can fly in to Bancroft Airport in southern Ontario for their medical. Dr. Henry Christiansen, a civil aviation medical examiner, has established an office on the field in the newly-renovated terminal. “Having a Transport Canada Civil Aviation Medical Examiner on site at the airport makes us unique,” said Bancroft Flying Club President Lynn Davis. “Pilots can fly into Bancroft for their medical, have lunch downtown, fuel up and fly back home.”

Christiansen has been the local CAME for decades in conjunction with his regular practice. On retiring from his practice, he decided to keep working with the many pilots he’s come to know over the years and welcome new ones into aviation. Pilots can book medicals through the Bancroft Flying Club Web site.
