Hello Guys,

I'm currently holding a FAA CPL/IR/ME and as I did my commercial training on ME, I would like to add the SE add-on.
I just wanted to know if I needed a student visa for this, I just know that I do not need to go through TSA.
I wrote to a FAA office and I didn't get any answer, I checked couple of times on USCIS website but didn't find any answer neither.
It seems difficult to find any official text on my case.
Is there anybody here who could direct me to a text talking about this.

Thanks in advance for your future answer
Grey area as some schools will say that you do but in fact you don't as you already have the commercial license. It's not for the issue of a new certificate. I recently did the same and wasn't required to get M1 visa.
