Commercial Check Ride

Recommended Posts

I understand that a valid 2nd class medical is required to "exercise the privileges" of a commercial pilot certificate, but is a current 2nd class medical needed to just take the commercial check ride? The practical test standards book says "yes", but the official word from the regulatory "bible" (the FARs) aren't as clear to me.


Any pointers to the official "word" or help in the interpretation would be greatly appreciated.

Ahhhh, there's the little bugger!

3rd class it is.

I knew it must be buried in there somewhere - Thank you!


Searching the internet for an answer led to conflicting information as well.

Even the Bristow Academy web site says a Class 2 medical is required to take the test.
