A few months ago I read an article about a FedEx pilot that has over 90 type ratings.

Not really. We used to get folks coming through who were type rating collectors. They'd see types that they could only get one place, and come plonk down some dollars and get the type. They'd have no practical use for it, but they're collectors. It's not that uncommon.

Another name you might find interesting (and I would guess he's a FedEx pilot given his address) is Leiland Mozart Duke: (I especially get a kick out of the Dispatcher, Control Tower Operator, and Senior Parachute Rigger certificates!)

I cant believe that those guys have that many types. There is NO way I could do it. I would hate doing all that training. But heck, I love to play golf and I bet those guys LOVE to get types.

"All Makes and Models"????? how??

This is the rap sheet on a family friend (the most veteran Reno Air Racer in history), Dave Morss. He's highly regarded as an experimental test pilot and I think that his LOA's (now type ratings) are more impressive than any of the previous FedEx guys' purchased type ratings. The more impressive fact is that he actually flies these machines that he's rated in. This is how he makes a living. Here's my big question.....how do you get the "All Makes and Models of Authorized Aircraft" limitation, and if read literally, is it really a "limitation"?? Or, does it mean, as an example, that authorization to fly NA-P51 (Mustang) allows him to fly all the different variations of that model (P-51A, P-51B, P-51D, F-51, TF-51, etc)? Anybody know for sure?

his website is www.davemorss.com for those looking for some neat stuff...

i believe it's a tie. Just like a low pass record. You can only tie that never break it.
I understand some old timers have ratings that indicate: All airplanes all types. That is no longer issued but that would be the most.

About 15 years ago I attended an AOPA sponsered CFI refresher course. One of the instructors was a recently retired FAA senior Air Carrier inspector. This guy put a copy, on the overhead projector, of the ATP certificate that he was issued during the last few years that he was with the FAA. Under limitations it read "UNRESTRICTED", in other words this guy was legal in everything. He mentioned that it came about as a result of an incident where he tried to pull some airline pilot's certificate. The inspector had been in the cockpit of some airliner when the crew did something stupid. The pilot's attorney argued that the inspector wasn't qualified to critique the crew because he wasn't type-rated in the particular aircraft that they had been flying. Long story short, he ended up with an unrestricted ATP. It also was of limited duration, l believe that it was 24 months, like a CFI certificate. He mentioned that the FAA had issued these certificates only to a handfull of their senior inspectors.
