61-143 - Conversion Process for Pilot Certificates in Accordance with the Technical Implementation Procedures - Licensing as Part of the Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement Between the FAA and EASA

Date Issued
June 22, 2021
Responsible Office
AFS-800
Description

This AC describes the procedures for converting a European Union Part-Flight Crew Licensing (EU Part-FCL) pilot license to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pilot certificate. It also contains information on whom to contact and where to find the process for converting an FAA pilot certificate to an EU Part-FCL pilot license. This AC describes how this conversion process is different from the process for obtaining an FAA pilot certificate issued on the basis of a foreign pilot license under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61, § 61.75 and for which the FAA certificate is limited by the foreign license.
