foreign based FAA license BFR?

January 16, 2010

Last year I got a foreign based ASEL priate pilot, and then did multi engine flight training in the US, and got my AMEL private (US TESTS PASSED); BUT I did not do a BFR. A guy was telling me that a foreign based without a BFR is invalid. Is that true?

The 24 monty US BFR clock started with your US AMEL checkride.

Pilots holding foreign certificates must comply with the issuing country rules. The US BFR requirement is for FAA certificated pilots, so a pilot possessing a foreign certificate and complying with rules of the issuing country would be legal in the US without a US BFR.

    I have a FAA CPL/IR. I am not at all current. last BFR was over 2 years ago. I no longer live in the US. can i get a CFI in my home country (ICAO member) to endorse my logbook to get me current? i will be doing a multi-engine rating here.

Got something to say?
