I know for a fact that that CDN pilots have worked ( and continue) overseas using their CDN lic and flying under the "other" countries registration. It is a simple process. Similar to Canada: The country in question applies to the local CAA and then the CAA approves a validation or a full ATPL license for that holder based on their home license. Be it ICAO,or FAA, or what have you. What you have said is completely false.
The European Union, Australia, and New Zealand allow a once in lifetime non renewable FLVC for 12 months. This to accomodate a foreign licenced pilot who permanetly moved into the country to make a living with his foreign licence while preparing his local licence. It is not used to allow the same foreign pilot to come and work six months out of the year, year after year with a foreign licence, as Transport Canada has been foreign licensed pilots to do in Canada.
The USA never allows foreign licences to fly US commercial aircraft, period.
Excellent research. Explain then how I and other CDN pilots have been able to hold validations and full ATPLs in Europe x2 countries, India, Asia, Africa x 3 countries, Aruba, Eastern Europe... Oh and I have flown US registered aircraft as well - commercially.... for periods up to 3 years..... all under a CDN lic.
When? 20 to 30 years ago?
