CFI Brief: Medical Certificates Answers and Explanations

On Monday I posted two questions about medical certificates Let’s see how you did.

1. A Third-Class Medical Certificate was issued to a 19-year-old pilot on August 10, this year. To exercise the privileges of a Recreational or Private Pilot Certificate, the medical certificate will expire at midnight on
A—August 10, 2 years later.
B—August 31, 5 years later.
C—August 31, 2 years later.

The correct answer is B, August 31st, 5 years later. A Third-Class Medical Certificate expires at the end of the last day of the 60th month after the month of the date of the examination shown on the certificate if the person has not reached his or her 40th birthday on or before the date of examination, for operations requiring a Recreational or Private Pilot Certificate.

2. For private pilot operations, a Second-Class Medical Certificate issued to a 42-year-old pilot on July 15, this year, will expire at midnight on
A—July 15, 2 years later.
B—July 31, 1 year later.
C—July 31, 2 years later.

The correct answer is C, July 31st, 2 years later. A Second-Class Medical Certificate expires at the end of the last day of the 24th month after the month of the date of the examination shown on the certificate if the person has reached his or her 40th birthday on or before the date of examination, for operations requiring a Private Pilot Certificate.

Good job! These were some tough questions so don’t feel too bad if you didn’t get them both right you may just need some more practice. You can find additional questions like those above in ASA’s Test Prep Books and Prepware Software designed to get you ready for your FAA Knowledge Test. For more information on medical certificates refer to 14 CFR 61.23 in the FAR/AIM book.
