FAA 61.75 & Additional Ratings

Hi there,

Would anyone be able to shed some light on this?

I apply for the certificate based on a foreign license for the PPL on my EASA license which I have the following SEP, Complex/High Performance, Tailwheel and FI

Can I go to the states and add a MEL and IR to my certificate with the notion of "US Test Passed" on the certificate and fly an N reg on these privileges based on the training I did in the US? My EASA would not have the multi engine or IR

61.75 (c) says:

(c)Aircraft ratings issued. Aircraft ratings listed on a person's foreign pilot license, in addition to any issued after testing under the provisions of this part, may be placed on that person's U.S. pilot certificate for private pilot privileges only.
So, looks like it. There’s a specific paragraph on the IR,

Yes of course. Pass the test, get the licence. You could then pay the 45 and validate it to fly G-reg multi in the UK.

As stated, the add on ratings are effectively the same as if your base licence was a standard US.
Strictly speaking though you need a US CFI to endorse you for tailwheel unless your experience pre-dates the cut-off for grandfather rights. I'm not sure about the other endorsements, but similar rules may apply.
You'd need to pass the commercial and CFI check rides to have instructor privileges.

The tail wheel endorsement is not required if you can show tail wheel PIC time prior to April 15 1991. The high performance endorsement is not required if you can show high performance PIC time prior to August 4th 1997. As pointed out, under the FAA system the Flight Instructor is a separate certificate and 61.75 doesn't apply.
