First class medical certificate
A first class medical certificate is required for all airline transport pilots - those having ATP privileges - flying scheduled airliners. A first class medical is valid for ATP privileges for twelve months for pilots under age 40. Pilots over 40 must renew First class medical certificates every six months.
Second class medical certificate
A second class medical certificate is required for all pilots involved in commercial activities. The holder of the medical certificate must be mentally and physically fit to exercise safely the privileges of the applicable license.
The Second class medical is valid for commercial privileges for 12 months.
Third class medical certificate
A Third class medical certificate is appropriate for student pilots, recreational pilots, and private pilots who fly for pleasure or personal business (but not for hire). Student pilots need only a Third class/student pilot certificate that serves as a combination pilot and medical certificate. A third class medical is valid for 60 months for pilots under age 40, and 24 months for applicants who are older than 40.
If you are not a holder of the appropriate medical certificate, we will be glad to help you arrange your examination in an authorized Aeromedical Centre.
