Getting an SIC type rating also seems, according to the FSDO, to NOT be possible if based on training/checking done by a foreign carrier or personnel. If the training program is not FAA approved and the checks, etc., are not done by FAA designees in FAA checked simulators, they wouldn't be valid for adding the SIC type rating to your US certificate, no matter HOW MANY signatures you get!
However, the FAA does have a special deal with Canada. If you have a Canadian license it's pretty easy to get the equivalent US license and ratings with only paperwork.
Sorry but there is no way to convert the FAA writtens... how do you 'convert' an hour on a computer to 14 paper exams totalling something like 20 hours ? I hadn't opened a study book in 15 yrs until 2 1/2 days before sitting my FAA ATPL... I scored 87% in slightly under 1 hr... it's laughable.
Thought you have to do the FAA written to convert your CPL license. Even with our Canadian licenses we have to write a written now to convert it. And our licenses are so close they're thinking of merging them as one. (Except we still learn spins?)
Quick question regarding IR currency of my FAA IR. I left my FARAIM in the last move and been in JAA land a bit too long now.
Last IPC i did was 1/07/2007 (January 7th) Then i traveled home to the EU and did my JAA IR in July/August/Sept (in a BE76 ME). Since this i have flown at least 20 approaches in a B737-800 FFS at SAS Flig.. err Oxford Flight Academy in Stockholm Sweden during my B737 type rating. Does this cover my IR proficency for my FAA Cert? But then again My FAA Cert was issued 14th of Dec. 2005, so i guess i have to do a PC anyways? What about my ME on the FAA ticket? done in Febuary 2005. Sorry about all the questions, If I wasnt 2kg overweight i would have kept that FARAIM
Sorry to re-iterate on an already asked question, but, Did I understand that if you hold a JAA CPL you can get an FAA CPL issued on the strength of it? I understand for the JAA to CAA IR Conversion there is a written exam and a flight test plus an oral, but is this not the same for a JAA CPL conversion? Thanks folks
Hello, I currently hold a JAR CPL fATPL and will soon go for a type rating in the US. Is it possible to obtain a FAA ATP by doing a check ride during the type rating provided that I have the ATP FAA theory and all the required experience ? If yes, should I first obtain an FAA license conversion or is it possible to proceed directly to an ATP issuance ? Thank you for the help !
Im an Australian licenced pilot thinking of heading over to the States to do a block of twin time building in Florida. I've read a fair bit about converting JAA but nothing in great detail about converting an Aussie licence. Anyone out there that has any experience on this matter?
Same rules for everyone. If you've already got the ME and an IR on your Oz license, take the IR written exam, then present all at the FSDO when you get to the States. You'll get your FAA PPL SEL/MEL, IR issued based on your Aussie ticket.
I have an embraer 170/190 type rating from SAT Zurich on my icao license and will like to have it endorsed on my FAA License. Please how do i go about it and what are the requirements especially since the type rating was done in a JAR state? I have so far logged 90 hours on the embraer 190.
