Since when do you need an ATP to have a Type Rating?
Interestingly, in the US one one the requirements to hold an ATP Certificate is:
Sec. 61.151 Eligibility requirements: General.
To be eligible for an airline transport pilot certificate, a person must--
(a) Be at least 23 years of age;
(b) Be able to read, speak, write, and understand the English language.
(c) Be of good moral character;
While this requirement is both vague and at the same time a cover-all, one could easily argue that misrepresenting qualifications in order to get a licence and a job is a lack of poor moral character . . . certainly the level of moral character expected of an airline pilot.
Strangely, the only example I have heard of the US FAA (or at least, one overzealous inspector) denying an ATP to an applicant on this grounds was because the applicant was gay.
