421Driver said:Has anyone done a FAA 135 checkride as a ATP checkride as well? So if you are taking a 135 ride with an FAA inspector you should be able to do the ATP ride as well?
I did the same exact thing for my SE ATP, albeit for 91K. It was nice and easy, although the oral took the better part of 5 hours. Did I mention it was FREE?!? :beer:4fanman said:I just did mine with my company's POI. However, it wasn't my required 135 ride. A checkairman was due his observed ride with the fed and he needed a "guinnea pig" to be his victim in the left seat. The checkairman administered the ride with the fed watching us both and the fed told him what he needed to see to accomplish my ATP ride.
The best part was that it was FREE and I got to do it in an airplane that I have almost 1000 hours in versus paying at ALL ATP's for an airplane that I have never flown before. Did I mention FREE?
Many others have done this at my company as well.
