From the folks that I have been talking to, there are quite a few of us with around 500 hours or less, with quite a few around 250-300 hours... All of us have submitted docs and were told we will be invited to an interview

FAA Flight Radio Operators License.

Hey Guys, I received an Email from Cathay to verify if I have an Flight Radio Operators License.
I hold an FAA Commercial Multi and I got it converted to an Transport Canada License.

In the US, we don't have a Radio Operators License. So what should I submit then?

If your license got converted to TC, you should have a radio license copy, everyone in Canada does.

Also, i'm sure you're not the first FAA pilot that's applied to CX, so just explain to them that the FAA doesn't issue such a document.

Is it a separate booklet apart from the license? Because I just have the license. Didnít receive the radio license copy. But Iíll let them know that FAA does not issue a radio license.

Thanks

Yes the radio license is issued as a separate piece of paper as industry canada is the issuer and it has nothing to do with transport canada... if you fly and are caught without a radio license in Canada, you could get fined as far as i'm aware

Seems like its taking everyone to get a reply back in two months. I submitted my documents on 1st May 2019. When I asked them when would the interviews take place they mentioned August, but now it seems like it will be a while for me. Hopefully I do get to interview in August.

I wish I saw this thread while I was waiting in agony for interview dates. Got mine for end of July. Submitted all documents in March. Currently 270TT with CPL IATRA, etc.. Has this whatsapp group been started yet? Would be cool to talk to some people in the same boat.
