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!
