When do I need a medical certificate? You need a medical certificate before you start flight training with LSH. This will alert you to any condition that would prevent you from becoming a pilot before you pay for lessons.
How do I get a medical certificate? By passing a physical examination administered by a doctor who is an FAA authorized aviation medical examiner. Visit http://ame.cami.jccbi.gov to find one near you.
What class of medical certificate must a student pilot have? Second-Class medical certification is required to fly commercially in a helicopter. We suggest you attain a 2nd class medical to ensure you will be eligible to fly as a commercial pilot. The Second-Class medical lasts for 60 months.
If I have a physical disability, can I get a medical certificate? Yes. Medical certificates can be issued in many cases where physical disabilities are involved.
