I had a 2nd class medical a long time ago but I haven't flown in quite a long time (i.e. years). It's not my job and it's a bit of an expensive hobby.I think somewhere in the application it says a Class III medical is required. My Class II just expired but it was nowhere near as stringent as a Class I.
So let me ask you this, are Class I, Class II, etc. medicals equivalent to the medicals pilots are required to get (1st class = Class I, 2nd class = Class 2, etc.) or is the medical ATC specific? Sorry if that seems like a dumb question, I'm just not intimately familiar with the ATC side of things.
