What are FAA medical exams?
An FAA exam is used to determine whether a pilot meets the minimum safety standards in regards to physical and mental condition as determined by the FAA. In the United States, there are three classes of medical certifications for pilots; such certificates are required to legally exercise the privileges of either a Private, Commercial or Airline Transport Pilot license. Medical Certificates are not needed for Glider, Balloon, Recreational or Sport Pilot certifications. The tree classifications are:
- Class I: Typically reserved for commercial airline transport pilots, but are requested by most First Officers and many business aviation flight crews. The certification lasts 6 calendar months if older than 40 at the time of evaluation or 12 months if younger than 40.
- Class II: Required for commercial pilots, including business aviation flight crew, crop dusters, aerial advertising pilots, charter pilots, or navigators and First Officers of commercial airline flights. The certification lasts 12 calendar months.
- Class III: Mainly used for recreational or private pilots. The certification lasts 60 calendar months if younger than 40 at the time of the evaluation or 24 months if other than 40.
