EASA to FAA Validation                   [ JOIN HERE ]


If you want to fly Worldwide a N-registrated Airplane, either VFR or IFR, you have to hold an FAA Pilot Certificate.

If you hold an ICAO Pilot License (EASA PPL or CPL, Australian license, etc.) you can get a restricted FAA Pilot Certificate, based on your Foreign License. The process includes some mailings and an interview with an FAA representative.

Airplane, Glider or Helicopter, Private or Commercial... Whatever your situation, we can help you !

  • You want to validate your license in order to get an FAA Certificate ?
  • You would like to know how to validate your Instrument Rating as well ?
  • You already hold an FAA Pilot Certificate, but you need a Flight Review ?
  • You are a professional Pilot, and would like to know if you could benefit from any "straight-validation" to get an FAA professional Certificate ?

Check below, we will answer these questions...

And whatever your situation, do not hesitate to contact us and explain your particular case.
We'll be happy to help you find the best option for your validation, and understand the process needed.

  • You want to validate your license in order to get an FAA Certificate ?

      Contact us ! We'll give you all explanations needed to help you go through the process.

  • You would like to know how to validate your Instrument Rating as well ?
      If you hold a non-FAA Instrument Rating, this does not allow you to fly under IFR on a N-registrated aircraft, even if you hold an FAA validation, and even if you fly in your own country, unless you validated this Instrument Rating and have it added on your FAA Pilot Certificate.

      A specific FAA Knowledge Test exists to validate your Foreign Instrument Rating, and we provide you with the required training during our 3 Day intensive training.
      To register to a training, check our Calendar !

      After the training, you can take the test in any FAA testing center in the US, and we can help you to register for the exam.
  • You already hold an FAA Pilot Certificate, but you need a Flight Review ?
      The FAA Validation process is not enough to go and fly... Your cannot use the privileges of your FAA Pilot Certificate unless you have performed a Flight Review with an FAA Flight Instructor (CFI).
      This flight (ground school + flight training), commonly known as "BFR", is a required recurrent training, and is valid for 24 calendar months.

      Our instructors are available for Flight Reviews all around Europe, on your own airplane or on one of our airplanes. Do not hesitate to contact us !



  • You are a professional Pilot, and would like to know if you could benefit conversion towards an FAA Certificate ?
      You hold a non-FAA professional License, and wish to fly N-registrated aircraft ?

      Do not hesitate to contact us ! We'll be happy to study your situation with you and find the best option.
