I hold a CPL from Pakistan and currently fly an A320. I have accumulated over 4000 flight hours. If I visit the United States, what is the procedure to obtain a FAA ATP certificate?
There are many things that need to be accomplished.
- Get a letter of authenticity from the FAA validating your license is valid and from an ICAO contracting country.
- Study and pass the ATP multi-engine written test. You may have to get a graduation certificate from a school offering the CTP course.
- Apply for and receive TSA clearance.
- Take the FAA ATP practical test in an A320 airplane or FFS simulator. It is best to contact a training center on what is required.
