I started flight training back in 2008, got a second class medical and logged about 40 hours before changing jobs/moving and that ended my flight training. Now I want to finish my training and am looking for the place to start. Health-wise since my last medical in 10/2008 the only major medical issue was a herniated disc and surgery in 2011. I also had DOT physicals most years and the occasional Dr. visit for flu/virus/whatever. So my question is: Can I go Basic Med (assuming I can find a Dr. to do it) or should I go for the Third Class? In addition do the DOT physicals have to be listed on the application?
