It's a matter of reciprocal agreements. The current ability to convert between FAA and Transport Canada certificates is rather straightforward under the latest rules.
I wouldn't say that. NetJets ME didn't have a problem with my FAA ATP when they called me for an interview. Not that I wanted to live in the Middle East, but most of the developing world will accept the equivalent of an ICAO ATPL, which an FAA ATP satisfies for the most part. Other countries like in EU, Canada, Australia, NZ and Latin America add their own restrictions to protect their own pilots.
An FAA ATP is valid anywhere when you are flying an N-registered a/c. It is a ridiculous rule especially in Europe and the UK and international agreements should be in place to validate licenses.
The human head in the bottom left of your avitar, belongs to the father of a good friend of mine here in CLT. His last name was Coleman and he survived that explosion.
Just to let you know.
Have a good one!
Ummm.. Yeah we did. We are talking about powered flight of course. Not gliders.FYI- America did not invent the airplane.
