Just an FYI. I teach at a FAA FAR part 142 center on the Falcon EASy aircraft. I thought you might be interested in the clarification of the categories.

there are four categories of candidates:

Category 1 is for pilots who do not have a heavy type rating (over 12,500 lbs.) on their FAA or foreign airman certificate. Initial Type Rating TSA Approval Process

Category 2 is for pilots who do have a heavy type rating (over 12,500 lbs.) on their FAA or foreign airman certificate, but are training in an aircraft they are not currently qualified in. Initial Type Rating TSA Approval Process

Category 3 is for pilots training in any aircraft with a MTOW of 12,500 lbs. or less. (Note: in many cases Category 3 is waived and no TSA application is required. Check with your learning center).

Category 4 is for pilots who are training in aircraft they are already qualified in, for example recurrent training. No fingerprints are required. Recurrent TSA Approval Process
