Smile Question on Physicals

My Name is Cody and im 17yrs old, next fall im going to a helicopter flight school. I was wondering when the best time to get my flight physical. Should i just get my third class? Or Second? Or is it best to get my First? Should i wait 'til i get to school or should i not waste any time.

Thanks For you Input

It is not a bad idea to get your class 1 before you commence your training and/or handing out large sums of money.

This will make sure that all your training won't be wasted if you have an un-correctable medical problem.

Good luck with your flying, Dave.
