Moving from CPL/IR + CFI Onwards... MPL?

Hello all!

First time thread poster here, looking for a bit of advice! (Please don't bash me if I posted this is the wrong section).

I am looking for an answer to a question that I have spent the last 2 hours scavenging through google for, but with no luck.

Is it possible for a CPL/IR Pilot, who has poured blood, sweat, and tears into his Instructor rating, and build up over 800 hours of instructional time, to convert his license to a MPL (Multi-Crew Pilot License)? Yes, yes I do very well understand how a MPL is regarded (again, no bashing), however I have gone through and gotten my other licenses as stated before, in a foreign country, and now things are taking a turn for the worse.

So I was wondering if this was possible? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to inbox me as well.

Thanks guys and happy flying!

MPL isn't ideal in this case why don't you just convert your licences to FAA and considering you already have 800+ hours you stand a chance of getting picked up by an airline

Edit: In America

No,

The requirements for an MPL are to be attached to an operator and do the MPL course on a specific type so you cannot convert to an MPL.

You can convert to a CPL and do an MCC (supposing you have ATPL theory) and apply for jobs in Europe.

Ps if you have 800 hrs you dont qualify to apply for airline jobs in FAA land as you must have 1500 hrs and most airlines want 3000 plus jet PIC time.

Thanks for the reply guys..

Yeah I was looking at converting to FAA, but I was told it wasn't recommended as it wouldn't be too easy for me to get a visa for flying there, and my fiancé is Indonesian, thought it might be quite difficult to get us both there....

Also, isn't the minimum for part 121 in U.S 1,500?

Thanks again guys!

Unless you have the right to work there then don't bother. It's very difficult to get.

Yes the FAA ATP requires 1500hrs
