FAA IEP Written Exam (EASA IR to FAA IR Conversion)

Hi All,

Just so nobody mixes up the process, this is not to get an FAA 61.75 validation. I am using the scope defined in the TIP-L which has been agreed by the FAA and EASA. My question specifically relates to the two written examinations required by the FAA to convert. Has anyone sat either the PEP or IEP written exams?

This is not to do with the IFP - Instrument Foreign Pilor written which is a validation of a european licence.

Is the IEP question database only related to airspace/comms etc or is it on the complete IR database?

Refards,

W2

Based on my experience with IFP, I would suspect that it will also include Regulations and Airport Procedures.

Since the FAA have still not completed converting all Knowledge Test questions to the ACS reference format, there may be inadvertent inclusions, as well as ‘wider definitions’ of what is really on the paper.

Also with the reduced number of questions, there is a greater prospect of a fail, with fewer incorrect answers.

Since the Private database is relatively simple, as is the Instrument alone, I would recommend reviewing the full test prep for each. While not the most comprehensive databanks, I found the ASA iOS apps more than sufficient.

Good luck.

Having just checked, my ASA apps were out of date…

The publisher frequently updates the app (for free).

The options for testing/practise now include both the PEP and IEP options. Even more recommended for your scenario.

See attached, the number of questions for each knowledge test (according to the ASA database).

Good luck.



IEP, above; PEP, below

I really appreciate the help awair, I did the IEP exam and passed yesterday! Would you have the same screenshot for the PEP? Do ASA have a prep for PEP exam?

Many thanks. It was a great help and was exactly as per the ASA questions

For what it's worth I did the whole IR rather than the bridge a couple of years ago. I used the ASA guides (one for written, one for oral), plus Rod Machado's superb online learning material. The ASA written test guide includes subscription for a load of online practice tests, which were excellent.

I sailed through the written using those, and Rod Machado's material was superb for understanding all things IFR in the USA. The oral was the real challenge, and I confess I took two goes, but the ASA oral test guide + Rod Machado did get me through second time.

I would recommend the same for anybody doing any flavour of US IR now, but with SPECIAL attention (i.e. memorise the whole damned thing) to the oral exam guide.

I plan to do the PEP and IEP written exams next year, are these are ASA apps we're talking about?

My screenshot above was for both exams. I've now inserted a space between...

The apps are the iOS versions, which have been continually updated for free since I first purchased. Android is also available. Not sure if the desktop versions expire?

And congratulations!

Thank you!

Just for information, the FAA does not accept an IPC completed in Europe for the purposes of this conversion process. The documentation states the IPC must be completed within the USA.

PEP exam was ok! Some aerodynamics questions and a few odd bits here and there but the ASA test prep was perfect for the prep. I got my IPC done in the USA and I now have a stand alone PPL with Single and Multi Instrument! Delighted
