EASA FI medical class 1 requirement for aged 40+

Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

EASA FI medical class 1 requirement for aged 40+

The EASA medical certificate expiry date for Class 1 has two different validity periods (if you're 40+ years of age). 6 months for Single pilot commercial operations carrying passengers and 12 months otherwise.

Am I correct in assuming that Flight Instructing is not considered "Single pilot commercial operations carrying passengers"? In other words that the Class I medical is valid for 12 months for 40+.

Thank you.

That’s correct. You don’t even need a CPL to work as an FI, so a Class 2 medical is sufficient. Commercial flight schools might be reluctant to employ you though.

After 6 months you still have validity for Class 2 anyway, as shown on your medical. The vast majority of non airline pilot, non IR holding instructors (and plenty of PPL Examiners), of a certain age, only hold a Class2.

Thank you for your replies Gents.

Ok, great, from your responses it seems that the yearly renewal of the EASA class I medical will be sufficient.

Cheers,

You can hold an IR with a class 2 medical but you need to pass the audiogram as well
