CL 300. That's a very good point. The FAA may not require anything beyond a class 2 but some administrations may do.

Winkwink:
I agree, there is no such FAR, I'm just sharing the info.

They said that there had been 'several SAFA groundings' including 'a Falcon in France.'

CL300:
I think that's also a very good take on the matter.

I was only speaking about our corporate requirements, not regulatory.

The point I was making 18months ago, was the fact that although the requirements said that only a Class 2 was needed, the aircraft insurance policy was clearly worded that the Commander needed to hold an ATP with Class 1 medical.

Best wishes, Jimbo

That's fair enough. The FARs do not mandate it.

From the FAA point of view, seat, certificate or anything else is irrelevant. If it's part 91 and someone is paying for your services as flight crew, you require at least a class 2 medical. If you're doing it for free, then just a class 3.

Actually, flying someone (the owner, etc.) "for free" requires a class 2 medical because the FAA would consider the flight time to be a form of compensation.

Thanks guys
So I do a class 1 annually then , it becomes a class 2 after 6 months, but I am still good to go until just before it becomes a class 3.
Cool
Thanks for the info

KKoran. Good point. I suppose what I meant was that if you were employed as a marketing director at John Deere (just an example) and flew the company jet (Part 91) a class 3 would suffice.
If you just fly the jet, class 2 (even if you don't get any money).
Nothing easy, even in FAA. EASA..don't even start.
