Just needed an advice from you.
I got my FAA ME CPL on Dec 19, 2016 and due to some situation in the family was not able to get my license immediately converted to Transport Canada CPL.
Now thankfully, I will be getting it converted in May this year.
Will I face any issues for the conversion because of all this downtime?
I know that if my FAA IFR has lapsed more than 24 months then I will have to do a FAA IPC flight but I still have another 6 months to go for that so I am in clear in that case.
But would any other issue arise. Would appreciate your guidance and any advice.
The FAA-TC conversion agreement requires an IPC, or Checkride in your case, within the last 24 months.
Apart from that you should be in good shape. Have you been studying for your CPL and IFR exams?
Thanks a lot for your info.
So I just wanted to confirm, I should be good with the IR. I wouldn’t need an IPC since I am still within the 24 months?
And I have started studying for the CPL exams? But will I also need to give the IFR exam as well? I was thinking that the CPL exam covers them both. I would appreciate if you could confirm that.
Please let me know.
Thank you so much.
It's two separate exams, you can take them both the same day or not.
Have you reviewed the Advisory Circular on this? Remeber you can't do any of this untill you get your canadian medical.
Thanks for the information.
I have started studying for the CPL course through Pilottraining.ca
Will also study for IFR through it as well. (If you know of any other options please do suggest).
I applied for my medical and am still waiting for it. Contacted them and they said expectancy is mid march so hopefully it comes around then.
Do you have any other suggestions? Appreciate your help.
Don't forget TC provides a study guide for both exams.
All the best.
