Can anyone tell me how someone gets an ICAO license? I hear many times that someone has an ICAO license, but what exactly does it mean (more specifically, how do you get it)???
For example, if I flew in "XYZ" country (and had the license of "XYZ" country) and this "XYZ" country was a member of ICAO, would that mean that I automatically also have an ICAO license (in addition to also having the license of "XYZ" country - in other words, is "XYZ" country's license also an ICAO license?). Or would I have to write an ICAO exam (and anything else involved) in order to get an ICAO license?
Or... does having an ICAO license just mean you have the license of an ICAO country (such as the fictional "XYZ" country).
Sorry for the drawn out question, but I wanted to be sure everyone knows what I'm asking. Thanks a lot for any info!
