We can help you convert your foreign certificate to an FAA Rating!

We strive to provide the most up to date information, but the appropriate regulatory authorities have the latest and most current regulations and guidance for conversions.

If you plan to rent an aircraft and build hours, a foreign license verification is recommended. But if you would like to add additional FAA certificates/ratings, a more formal conversion is recommended.

Here’s How it Works:

FAA License Verification

For detailed instructions, click here to visit the FAA website. If you are applying for a certificate issued on the basis of a foreign license under the provisions of:

  • 14 CFR 61, Section 61.75
  • Special purpose pilot authorizations under Section 61.77
  • Using a pilot certificate issued under Section 61.75 to apply for a Commercial Pilot certificate under section 61.123 (h)
  • Applying for an Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate issued under Section 61.153 (d) (3)
  • Applying for a certificate issued on the basis of a foreign license
    under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 63, sections 63.23 and 63.42

The Airmen Certification Branch, AFS‐760 must have the Civil Aviation
Authority (CAA) verify the validity and currency of the foreign license
and medical certificate or endorsement before you apply for an FAA
certificate or authorization. The processing of the Verification of
Authenticity of Foreign License, Rating, and Medical Certification form
takes approximately 45 to 90 days to complete.
