OSU requires students to obtain at least a third-class medical certificate before getting in an aircraft. We recommend you get this before arriving on campus.
Although any class (first, second or third) of medical certificate will suffice, third-class is recommended. Generally, first-class is designed for the airline transport pilot, second-class is designed for the commercial pilot and third-class is designed for the student, recreational or private pilot. If you plan to become a professional pilot, you may consider obtaining the first-class medical certificate. Inform the Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) that the medical certificate will also serve as a student pilot certificate.
