What is a Class 1 Medical?
At GreyBird Pilot Academy, it is a requirement that our students have a Class 1 Medical certificate before they start studying at one of our bases.
A Class 1 Medical is a certificate that proves that you are physically and mentally fit to become a pilot at an airline. There are many false rumors about the health requirements to become a pilot. Here, we will refute some of them:
- You do not have to have a certain height or weight
- You do not have to have perfect eyesight
- You do not have to have perfect hearing
- You do not have to have a perfect medical record
