What class of medical certificate must I hold and how long is it valid?

A second-class airman medical certificate

Those exercising the privileges of a flight engineer certificate, a flight navigator certificate, or acting as air traffic control tower operator must hold a second-class airman medical certificate.

A third-class airman medical certificate
