Having had a look at the new Inspector's Handbook, what I just said may not be true anymore. You do still have to be approved to take the written test but the guidance only says the authorization must be dated to expire on the same date that the applicant's medical will expire.
The reg (61.153(e)) just says that applicant must meet the experience requirements before applying for the flight test. Don't know why that would be there if you had to prove your times before the written.
If it hasn't changed, you need to take the commercial written and atp written as well as the commercial checkride and atp checkride. They can be done in single and multi engine aircraft. No need to do it in a simulator unless you want to. As far as schools go, it's up to you which one fits you best. For conversion, I would recommend the bigger, well known schools as they usually do it in as little time as possible. Just my 2 cents.
I have a JAA CPL with ir and type rating. I have approx 950TT
I'm going to do the written atp test (FAA) in Paris BUT i want to do the practical test during my JAA recurrent in the states (in the sim). Ofcourse since i don't have a atpl i want to go for a FAA cpl with ir and typerating.
I have a single engine CPL and multi engine CPL. I may have a chance to take a multi engine ATP practical test but not single engine ATP test. However I will still need to fly single engines with CPL priviledges only (instruct on singles).
is it possible to hold a multi engine ATP license and a single engine CPL license at the same time ?
Should I do Check ride in A320 SIM as an LPC or Fly King Air B200?
The B200 type rating in the US isn't required, as it's under 12,500 lbs. No type rating required. Unless you're flying a variant with a weight in excess of 12,500 lbs (C-12, for example), one won't be issued, either.
Yes it is. Your will have a limitation stating " Single engine Commercial priviliges only" or something similar.
Close. The FAA issues certificates, rather than licenses. Whether it's the ATP or commercial, it's still just one pilot certificate, with various ratings. Ratings are had in category and class, and may be held at various levels of privilege.
One may hold a pilot certificate with ATP privileges for Airplane, Multi-Engine Land, but at the same time hold on the same certificate Commercial privileges for Airplane, Single-Engine Land.
a) Enter “HOLDER DOES NOT MEET THE PILOT-IN-COMMAND FLIGHT EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS OF ICAO” if the applicant meets the requirements of § 61.159 .
b) Enter “HOLDER DOES NOT MEET THE PILOT-IN-COMMAND AERONAUTICAL EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS OF ICAO” if the applicant meets the total flight time requirement only by applying § 61.159(d) and does not meet the criteria of § 61.159(e) .
c) An inspector should remove the limitations listed in paragraphs K1a and b above when the applicant presents satisfactory evidence that he or she has met the pertinent regulatory requirements.
They don't really say how you present your evidence.
What do you mean by saying you've had no luck contacting the FAA? The one time I've had a certificate come back wrong, I've found the Airman Certification Branch in Oklahoma City helpful.
I sent a message to the Philly FSDO since that was the one I dealt with last. I got a repsonse from them telling me that I should contact the New York Int'l Field Office. I contacted them only to find out they will also look into it. Its been a couple of weeks already..............
I just want to know whether I can present the evidence my mail, such as certified logbook copy or 8710 or whatever other documentation. Since I am overseas, I do not wish to make a trip to the U.S only for this.
There is an e-mail link, fax number and phone number. The time my certificate was screwed up, I called the designee, didn't hear anything for 6 weeks, called a friend who works for the FAA locally and he said call 405-954-3261. I called, a real person answered the phone, I told them the problem, they pulled up my file and said I was right and they would fix the certificate. In ten days I had a correct certificate in the mail box.
Try the e-mail if you don't want to set your alarm clock for the middle of the night. I get to teach some FAA inspectors this week, I'll ask them about your situation. It's probably outside their normal area of work but they should be able to point you in the right direction.
Thank you for your question. This can be accomplished through our International Field Office(s) (IFO). Where are you located at this time? Once I know this, I'll be better prepared to provide you with the proper IFO. Once you contact them, you'll be looking for an operations inspector to have the limitation removed. Hope this helps. Please contact me with your location. Thanks again.
This is not something we can answer for you as our support for IACRA is strictly computer related. We have to direct you to an FAA office, your recommending instructor or designated examiner for an answer to this question.
I called the phone number you mentioned i.e. 405-954-3261. I spoke to an examiner and she told me basically that I would personally have to meet with an inspector at a FSDO to have that restriction removed. She said I could try talking to the New York int'l field office.
Looks like there is no other way to do this other than making a trip to the States.....
Yeah, the Inspectors I talked with said you would have to appear before an Inspector because you are getting a new certificate and would have to sign the temporary certificate after you show the time logged.
You might see if FAA office in London or Frankfurt can do it. I know the FAA office in Sinapore is maintenance only and does not do pilot stuff. Good luck.
