Medical for commercial sightseeing flights

Answered By AOPA
I’m a commercial pilot and have an opportunity to do some sightseeing flights for a local operator. I’m under 40 and got a first class medical 16 months ago. Do I still have 2nd class medical privileges or do I need to get a new 1st or 2nd class medical?

You currently have third class medical privileges and would be required to get a new 1st or 2nd before exercising your commercial privileges. FAR 61.23 is the reference for all your medical duration questions.

Basically, regardless of age or original medical certificate level, Second Class privileges expire 12 calendar months after the exam date.
