Question;

How do i convert a Canadian ATPL to a FAA ATPL? is it a costly, long process? Flight test?

I am looking to possibly put a B777 rating on it after.

Get your hands on FAA Advisory Circular AC No: 61-135.

It will answer all of your questions.

B777 rating onto a FAA ATPL

Can I pay the cash, do the course and then put it on the licence? (e.g with Pan Am Academy)

Do they count ZFT in the US? I have Boeing experience to date?

777 rating

Do you already have the FAA ATPL? Then you can pay the money and the FAA will put it on your license, providing you get through the check ride.

It's just one 40 queston test. I don't know if the test has been updated since 07, if the question comes comes up about what the age limit is for 121 ops, remember it's 65.

Josmison,

I'm not sure want square you're trying to fill. The regs say:

"(4) 250 hours of flight time in an airplane as a pilot in command, or as second in command performing the duties of pilot in command while under the supervision of a pilot in command, or any combination thereof, which includes at least—
(i) 100 hours of cross-country flight time; and
(ii) 25 hours of night flight time."

So you can count the SIC time to meet the 250 hours PIC.

"(c) A commercial pilot may credit the following second-in-command flight time or flight-engineer flight time toward the 1,500 hours of total time as a pilot required by paragraph (a) of this section:
(1) Second-in-command time, provided the time is acquired in an airplane—
(i) Required to have more than one pilot flight crewmember by the airplane's flight manual, type certificate, or the regulations under which the flight is being conducted;
(ii) Engaged in operations under subpart K of part 91, part 121, or part 135 of this chapter for which a second in command is required; or
(iii) That is required by the operating rules of this chapter to have more than one pilot flight crewmember."

So were the 700 hours flown under 121?

FAA does have PIC/US

In FAA world, I don't believe there is such a thing as PICUS.

Correct. I hold both FAA and CASA license and I used to have the same problem. The answer is simple, there can be only one PIC and no SIC in a C208 under part 91 operations for the purpose of FAA certification.

The exception is, as stated by Harmattan96, if you were giving dual instruction or acting as designated safety pilot under recurrent instrument competency and under part 135 ops.

drop me a PM if you need further infos
Wrong,
as per 14CFR 61.59
4) 250 hours of flight time in an airplane as a pilot in command, or as second n command performing the duties of pilot in command while under the supervision of a pilot in command, or any combination thereof, which includes at least—

FAA ATP

Hi fellow aviators and belated Happy New Year to all of you

I am due for my PC this coming Feb on the DASH8 and was wondering if you guys could confirm my plan of action

Got a FAA CPL ME/SE land with IR and would like to "upgrade" to the FAA ATP. I do meet all the flight time requirements to take the checkride and have the Dash8 rating (100-400) on another ICAO CPL license. Now is it possible to

1. Take the written exam
2. The grueling (or not) ATP oral
3. Then the ATP checkride on the Dash8
4. Hopefully be send home with a handshake and "CONGRATZ"

Would there be a problem if two examiner (local CAA plus the FAA one) would sit back in, relax and see me sweating?

I do hold an ICAO First class medical, and would there still be the need to get a FAA 3rd class medical, as I am just doing the check in the SIM??? And if I pass will the type rating on the ATP be a SIC or PIC one

Got 1000hrs plus on the Dash8 but haven't been too much exposed to FAA regs. for quite some time.

How can I prepare for the Oral as the Check itself is already outlined in the PTS?

Any constructive input is more than welcome and feel free to pm me anytime!

HELP WANTED!!!

Cheers,

luftwaffe

I think the hardest thing will be to find a sim that is approved by both the FAA and your local CAA and to get the two inspectors together at the same time. Also if there are things one requires and the other doesn't it might be confusing.

You don't need any medical to take the check in the sim, however you have to have a current First Class to take the written. If you have 1000 hours on the plane, you shouldn't have much of a problem on the oral. You should be able to explain all the switches and lights on the panel. And give an overview of all the systems. Plus the memory items on the checklist. You may also have to do a basic performance problem, runway required with snow on the runway or something off the performance charts.

I would think you would want the PIC type rating, the FAA doesn't even do the checkride for the SIC rating.

FAA ATP Knowledge Test

For the ATP knowledge test result, is it only good for two years?

The ATP knowledge test is good for 2 years unless you are employed by a part 121 company and have gone through their training program - only then you can take the ATP checkride with an expired written.

Lightbulb FAA ATP

Supposely, FAA ATP requirements have been met and to apply for FAA (SE) ATP, can the checkride be done in an ordinary C172 airplane? If yes, must it be complex airplane?

What about ME ATP, can the checkride be done in any light twin?
