Do I need a CII airplane written?

Do I need a CII airplane written?

Pretty complicated question...

I have ATP/CFI/CFII helicopter, and a CPL airplane. I am about to do my instrument airplane add on, followed by my CFII airplane. I know this is backwards as almost everyone does their CFI first, but I found that doing the CFII as my initial is possible and it will also save me a chunk of change.

My question is do I need to take a CFII written? For IFR and CPL add-on I know I obviously do not require a written, but is there one required for the CFII?

It is my understanding that I will not have to take the FOI's again, but I will still have to take a written exam for the CFI and CFII airplane ratings.

Is this true? And can anyone back this up with the applicable regs?

Not complicated at all. The answer is yes and yes. It's not a reg, it's in https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/...der8080.6d.pdf

At least you don't have to take the full tests. They're only 25 and 20 question add on tests.

I'll just say as a CFI you don't have to know everything but the FAA puts everything on line. You should spend some time lurking around the airman certification section on FSIMS.faa.gov. Sort of get to know your enemy.
