Questions Regarding Foreign Ratings

Fri Oct 15, 1999 10:08 am

I have a couple of questions.

1. If I get my PPL in Canada, is it valid in USA?

2. If I upgrade my license in USA is it valid in Canada?

3. What is the minimum age to take flying lessons in Canada? I heard it varies by province.

4. I heard somewhere that if you go over to Europe to fly for a major, they, (the airline), will pay for all of your education, and guarantee you a job upon completion. Is that true?

Any help would be appreciated.

1) You will be abelt to fly and you should be able to go to the FAA and get your PPL changed easily.

2) You might have to do some more training in Cananda but your hours will count.

3) Not sure on this one

4) You can apply to the european airline with something called sponsorship this means the airline pays for your flight training and then you get paid a bit less in the begining but you are assured a job for a couple years. But this is really hard to do and you have to be really smart a european cit. and prove you are interested in flying.
