Their website says that they want you to arrive with your ATP written so I was wondering if anyone knows what their interpretation of the Regs is since each place seem to have a different one. I have been at a regional for a few years so mine is expired, but I am still employeed by the same 121 carrier. I know it's good should I upgrade with my company(we know that won't happen in the next 3 years,) but some places like all ATP's will make you retake it.What would you like to know about it?
Yes, that is who I am talking about. I have heard of many guys that have used him. I might have to go purchase flanel pants and a down parka though if go that route.If you're talking about Trask at PQI, I'd go there. He was great! Took my written with All ATP's in Bowling Green, KY.
I have never heard of a Fisdo before. I have heard of a FSDO though. Just giving ya a hard time. I am currently employed by a 121 carrier and my written is expired. If I were to upgrade to Captain tomorrow, or next year at the 121 carrier the written would still be good for the Practical test. Now, I am employed by the same 121 carrier and say I go to the FSDO tomorrow and ask to take a checkride for the ATP, would they make me retake the written? I have spoken with a couple of DPEs today that say you can take the checkride without retaking the written, as long as I am still employed by the 121 carrier and if I can show them proof that I am still employed under part 121.The ATP written only stays current for a check ride with a 121 or 135 carrier depending on the written you took. Read the regs and talk to the fisdo. The Fisdo is the controling factor and the interpreter of the rule.
This is 100% WRONG and I'm surprised "a couple of DPEs" would have told you that.I have spoken with a couple of DPEs today that say you can take the checkride without retaking the written, as long as I am still employed by the 121 carrier
