This advisory circular (AC) provides the procedure and eligibility requirements for a Transport Canada Civil Aviation Authority (TCCA) pilot license holder converting to an Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pilot certificate and an outline of the procedures and eligiblity requirments for an FAA pilot certificate holder converting to a TCCA pilot license. Pilots who are licensed by TCCA and comply with the special conditions listed within the Implementation Procedures for Licensing (IPL) are considered to be eligible for the associated FAA pilot certificate for airplane and/or rotorcraft–helicopter at the private, commercial, and airline transport pilot (ATP) levels including associated instrument ratings and applicable pilot type ratings.
