# Does a multi-engine ATP with single-engine commercial privileges provide single-engine instrument privileges?

Does a multi-engine ATP with single-engine commercial privileges provide single-engine instrument privileges?

I received my ATP certificate recently, and the back of my FAA certificate reads as follows.

AIRLINE TRANSPORT PILOT
AIRPLANE MULTIENGINE LAND
...
COMMERCIAL PRIVILEGES
AIRPLANE SINGLE ENGINE LAND
...


I left out the specific type ratings and limitations as noted by ....

The ATP supersedes an instrument rating, but the ATP is for the multi-engine category. Shouldn't the certificate reflect an instrument rating in the single-engine category?

The changes to my certificate were completed in IACRA and I have had part of a rating inadvertently removed before using the IACRA system.

• Since the Instrument addon is by category, not class, aka Instrument Airplane, or Instrument Rotorcraft, the ATP Multi-Engine Airplane, counts for Instrument Airplane for the Commercial Single. Dec 26 '16 at 3:34
• I agree with slookabill, I don't believe there is any distinction for instrument, you have it or you don't, it's not tied to a class of aircraft like single or multi. Dec 26 '16 at 4:51
• @slookabill you should post your comment as an answer. It's short but it's the correct one. Dec 27 '16 at 0:20
• Note also that you have an ATP Certificate, which gives you instrument privileges. On this certificate, there is a sub-section which states that you have Commercial Privileges for ASEL but that is still part of your ATP Certificate. May 15 '17 at 17:11
