5-726 PROGRAM TRACKING AND REPORTING SUBSYSTEM (PTRS) ACTIVITY CODES.
A. Oral: 1514.
B. Simulator: 1515.
C. Aircraft: 1516.
5-727 OBJECTIVE. This task provides the background and policy information to enable an aviation safety inspector (ASI) (Operations) to determine
if an applicant is qualified to receive an initial or additional type rating for a Private, Commercial, or Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Certificate under Title 14 of the Code of
Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part
Successful completion of this task results in the issuance of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Form 8060-4, Temporary Airman Certificate, that contains the applicable type
rating. Failure of a practical test will result in the issuance of FAA Form 8060-5, Notice of Disapproval of Application. Incomplete practical tests will result in the issuance of
a Letter of Discontinuance.
5-728 GENERAL. An aircraft type rating may be added to a Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot, or ATP Certificate. However, type rating practical tests are
conducted to a single standard for all certificate levels. Regardless of the grade of certificate held, an applicant must meet the standards for a type rating in the ATP and/or type rating
practical test standards (PTS) or
Airmen Certification Standards (ACS) as appropriate. All type ratings within category and class held on a superseded certificate are carried forward to the new certificate level
without further testing. For military pilots applying under the provisions of part
a type rating may be upgraded to the ATP Certificate level. Type ratings limited to visual flight rules (VFR) also may be upgraded to the ATP Certificate level without further testing.
However, there is no provision for taking an initial ATP practical test in an aircraft that would require a VFR limitation. A type rating for a single-place (single-pilot station)
aircraft may not be upgraded to the ATP Certificate level.
NOTE: An inspector conducting a practical test for a type rating issued concurrently with an ATP Certificate must follow
Volume 5, Chapter 2, Section 18, or
Volume 5, Chapter 3, Section 1,
as applicable, in addition to the guidance listed in this section.
A. Flight Instructor Recommendation. For an applicant applying for a type rating only, the Instructor’s Recommendation section of FAA
Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application, does not need to be signed unless the applicant is retesting due to a previously failed practical test for the rating.
1) If an applicant is applying for a type rating to be added to an existing pilot certificate, the applicant must have an endorsement in the
applicant’s logbook or training records, from an authorized instructor, certifying satisfactory completion of the training required by the appropriate provisions of part
61 subpart G.
Additionally, an inspector conducting a practical test for a type rating issued concurrently with an ATP Certificate must follow guidance in
Volume 5, Chapter 2, Section 18, or
Volume 5, Chapter 3, Section 1, as applicable.
2) If the applicant is applying for a type rating to be placed on a Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate, the airman must have an endorsement
in the airman’s logbook or training records from an authorized instructor, certifying satisfactory completion of the training required by §
B. Evaluator’s Record. The “Evaluator’s Record (Use for All ATP Certificate(s) and/or Type Rating(s))” section of FAA Form
be signed on the appropriate lines, including when the type rating practical test is conducted for a person who possesses a private or commercial pilot certificate.
C. Aircraft Undergoing Certification. For type ratings in aircraft that are undergoing type certification and which have not been issued a type
Volume 5, Chapter 9, Section 3.
D. Medical Certificate. The requirements for a medical certificate for a practical test are addressed in
An applicant is not required to hold a medical certificate if the practical test is given in a flight simulation training device (FSTD).
E. Type Rating Limited to VFR. A type rating bearing the limitation “VFR ONLY” may be added to an existing pilot certificate under
the provisions of §§
However, this option is available only for those aircraft which require a pilot type rating and are not capable of demonstrating instrument procedures because of the aircraft’s
type certificate (TC). This paragraph applies to type ratings being added to an ATP Certificate only. There is no provision for taking an initial type rating practical test when adding
that type rating to an existing pilot certificate in an aircraft that would require a VFR limitation.
F. Amphibian Aircraft. An amphibian type rating must bear the limitation “LIMITED TO LAND” or “LIMITED TO SEA” as appropriate,
unless the applicant demonstrates proficiency in both land and sea operations.
5-729 PILOT TYPE RATING THAT MAY BE PERFORMED AS EITHER A SINGLE‑PILOT OR WITH A SECOND IN COMMAND (SIC). Practical tests for pilot type ratings
may be performed as either a single-pilot or with an SIC in accordance with §
A. General. This policy guidance shows how to record whether the pilot type rating practical test was performed as a single-pilot or by using an SIC crewmember.
1) In a previous version of this order, the FAA had established policy that clarified the intent of 14 CFR part
allowing practical tests for some pilot type ratings to be performed as either a single-pilot or with an SIC.
2) This policy addresses performing pilot type rating practical tests as a single-pilot crew composition or with an SIC pilot crewmember in:
a) Large airplanes certificated under Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 41, where the airplane’s TC authorizes single-pilot operations. Although
SFAR 41 expired on September 13, 1983, many of the large airplanes that were certificated under SFAR 41 are still in active service (i.e., per §
b) Turbojet airplanes where the airplane’s TC or Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) allows for both single-pilot and two-pilot operations (i.e., per §
c) Commuter category airplanes that have a passenger seating configuration, excluding pilot seats, of nine seats or fewer, where the airplane’s TC
authorized single-pilot operations (i.e., per §
d) Situations where the FAA may issue a letter of authorization (LOA) for authorizing single‑pilot operations if that airplane is designed for and
TC’d with only one pilot station (i.e., per §
e) Situations where the FAA has issued grants of exemption from §§
some training providers that accomplish single-pilot training.
applicants to perform the type rating practical test as either a single-pilot or with an SIC in certain makes and models of aircraft. Aircraft with this single-pilot allowance will
expand as more aircraft receive certification permitting both single-pilot and two-pilot crew complements. Prior to conducting a type rating practical test, the person qualified to
administer the practical test must reference the aircraft Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS), Flight Standardization Board (FSB) report, or FAA-approved AFM/Rotorcraft Flight Manual
(RFM) to verify the FAA requirement for the pilot flightcrew complement to be either a single-pilot or a pilot and a co-pilot. If the practical test is conducted with the use of a
co-pilot, the limitation of “Second In Command Required” will be placed on the Temporary Airman Certificate in accordance with §
This only applies to practical tests accomplished in aircraft with a single-pilot operational allowance.
4) Some operators have been granted an exemption from the rule to train and authorize pilots to operate certain Textron 500 series airplanes
“single-pilot” that would otherwise require a pilot and co-pilot minimum crew (e.g., CE-500, CE-550, CE-S550, CE-552, and CE-560). These pilots must currently hold the
CE‑500 type rating to qualify for the single-pilot exemption training and authorization, including some additional minimum pilot time and experience requirements. The FAA has determined
that possession of the CE‑500 type rating in advance of the single-pilot exemption training is necessary to ensure previous specific make and model experience. This successfully mitigates
the risk and operational challenges, when transitioning to single-pilot operations. To determine which operators have been granted this single-pilot training and exemption grant,
one will need to search the FAA Automated Exemption System (AES)
Pilots authorized to operate single-pilot in these certain Textron 500 series airplanes must carry in their possession a copy of the applicable exemption, when operating as a single-pilot
in such airplanes, and possess the appropriate model‑specific endorsement in their logbook. Each person who successfully completes the training and proficiency check identified in
the exemption must have their pilot logbook endorsed by the operator’s instructor administering the training, using the following endorsement:
“I certify that (first name, MI, last name) has successfully completed the CE-500 single-pilot training curriculum conducted by
(Name of Company) for the (model-specific type, e.g., CE-550) identified in Exemption No. xxxxx, as amended.” /s/ [date] J. J. Jones 987654321CFI Exp. 03-31-16
5) When the aircraft’s TCDS or AFM/RFM specifically requires the crew composition to be a single-pilot, an applicant for that pilot type
rating must perform the practical test as a single-pilot. This requires the pilot to demonstrate, without assistance, the required
areas of operation and tasks as a single-pilot.
6) When the aircraft’s TCDS or AFM/RFM specifically requires the crew composition to be a pilot and co-pilot, an applicant for that type rating
must perform the practical test in that crew configuration.
7) When the FAA has authorized a crew composition with either a single-pilot crew or with an SIC, the applicant may elect to perform the practical test
as a single-pilot or with an SIC. The FAA has several ways of notating whether the practical test was performed as a single-pilot or with an SIC. This provision is provided for in accordance with §§
8) Direct questions about what aircraft are permitted to be operated with either of these pilot configurations to the FAA’s General Aviation and
Commercial Division (AFS-800), 800 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20591, 202-267-1100.
B. Recording Procedures for Authorizing Single-Pilot Operations or Requiring the SIC Limitation on the Applicant’s Pilot Certificate and Logbook.
These procedures apply for an aircraft that has either a crew or single-pilot operational allowance as described in the TCDS, AFM/RFM, or the FSB report.
1) An Applicant Who Satisfactorily Accomplishes the Practical Test as a Single-Pilot. The Operations ASI will issue the applicant the appropriate pilot
type rating on the Temporary Airman Certificate and will record the results of the practical test in the applicant’s logbook as: “[DATE] I certify that [Name of applicant,
certificate level and number] satisfactorily accomplished the [the pilot type rating] practical test as a single-pilot in a [make and model of aircraft].” See example of an
endorsement for recording the results of the practical test as a single-pilot in the applicant’s logbook:
2/14/2016—I certify that Dean Chamberlain, ATP Certificate No. 1111111 satisfactorily accomplished the CE-500 pilot type rating practical
test as a single-pilot in a Textron 501.
Christine Clark, ASI, WP FSDO No. 7
2) An Applicant Who Satisfactorily Accomplishes the Practical Test with an SIC Crewmember. The Operations ASI will issue the applicant the appropriate
pilot type rating on the pilot’s Temporary Airman Certificate with the limitation “[Make and model of aircraft] Second in Command Required.” (This only applies to
practical tests accomplished in aircraft that have a minimum crew allowance of one pilot or pilot and co-pilot specified in the airplane TCDS, FSB report, or AFM/RFM.) The ASI or pilot
examiner will record the results of the practical test in the applicant’s logbook as: “[DATE] I certify that [Name of applicant, certificate level, and number]
satisfactorily accomplished the [the pilot type rating] practical test in a [make and model of aircraft] with an SIC pilot crewmember.” See an example below of an endorsement for
recording the results of the practical test with an SIC pilot crewmember in the applicant’s logbook:
2/14/2016—I certify that Dean Chamberlain, ATP Certificate No. 1111111 satisfactorily accomplished the CE-500 pilot type rating practical
test in a Textron 501 with an SIC pilot crewmember.
Christine Clark, ASI, WP FSDO No. 7
Figure 5-85. Sample FAA Form 8060-4, Temporary Airman Certificate—Pilot Type Rating with the SIC Limitation
NOTE: This example is for the CE-525 pilot type rating with the SIC limitation.
C. Removal of the “Second in Command Required” Limitation from a Pilot Type Rating on the Pilot Certificate. A practical test is required
to remove the SIC limitation (refer to §
To remove the limitation, it is not necessary to complete the entire practical test as a single-pilot.
1) All areas of operations/tasks approved for a full flight simulator (FFS) may be accomplished in that FFS for the purpose of removing the “Second
in Command Required” limitation. However, this does not change any FFS requirements for the original issuance of the pilot type rating.
2) Satisfactory completion of an approved single-pilot training program and an end-of-course practical test for that program may meet the requirements
for removal of the “Second in Command Required” limitation.
3) Areas of operation (listed in the Airline Transport Pilot and Aircraft Type Rating
Practical Test Standards,
FAA-S-8081-5F), to include the following:
· Preflight preparation tasks: none;
· Preflight procedures tasks: all;
· Takeoff and departure phase tasks: all;
· In-flight maneuvers tasks: c, e, and f;
· Instrument procedures tasks: all;
· Landings and approaches to landing tasks: all;
· Normal and abnormal procedures;
· Emergency procedures; and
· Postflight procedures tasks: all.
4) Additional areas include:
· Collision avoidance;
· Communication management; and
· Instrument flight rules (IFR) cross-country flight plan avionics loading.
5-730 TEXTRON (BEECHCRAFT) MODEL 200 HEAVY AIRCRAFT. By letter of August 5, 1994, to the Small Aircraft Directorate (ACE-100), Kansas City, MO, the
Department of the Army, Headquarters, United States Army Aviation Center, Fort Rucker, AL, requested that aircraft type rating data applicable to Textron Model 200 aircraft
eligible to be operated at more than 12,500 pounds gross weight, be amended as necessary to include all currently eligible aircraft. Accordingly, a consolidated list of all Textron
Model 200 and derivative military aircraft eligible to be operated at more than 12,500 pounds gross weight is provided in Figure 5-92, Textron Model 200 and Military RC/FWC
5-731 PILOT TRAINING AND/OR CERTIFICATION EVENTS FOR TYPE RATINGS CONDUCTED IN RESTRICTED CATEGORY AIRCRAFT.
A. Basic Operational Requirements Under Part
Restricted category aircraft are required to be operated under the limitations found in §
that “no person may operate a restricted category civil aircraft—
1) For any purpose other than the special purpose for which it is certificated; or
2) In an operation other than one necessary to accomplish the work activity directly associated with that special purpose.”
B. Consideration for Type Rating Practical Tests. Section
a limited allowance for training. In part, it states that “operating a restricted category civil aircraft to provide flight crewmember training in a special purpose operation
for which the aircraft is certificated is considered to be an operation for that special purpose.” Note that this allowance to conduct training is limited to training directly
related to the special purpose only (listed in 14 CFR part
for which the aircraft is certificated under
Practical tests for the addition of a type rating designation to a pilot certificate, training in preparation for such practical tests, or other flights necessary for the conduct of
such practical tests (such as observations required for Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE) designation and surveillance) are outside the scope of the restricted special purpose for which
these aircraft were certificated and are prohibited under §
C. Consideration for Pilot in Command (PIC) Proficiency Checks Required by §
The FAA notes that the regulatory restriction under §
only to those flights associated with pilot certification and/or type rating requirements of part
This determination does not apply to proficiency flights conducted by those who already hold the requisite type rating and whose duties are to perform an operation described by §
These operations are governed by §
the TCDS. These flights, such as flights needed to satisfy the PIC proficiency checks required by §
associated Pilot Proficiency Examiner (PPE) observations), are considered necessary to accomplish the work activity directly associated with the aircraft’s special purpose and can
be conducted in accordance with §
D. Authorization in Lieu of a Type Rating. The provisions of §
a person to operate an aircraft described in §
the requisite type rating. While the FAA could issue an authorization to allow a pilot to serve as a PIC without the requisite type rating, this authorization would not provide exception
to operational restrictions found in §
5-732 PREREQUISITES AND COORDINATION REQUIREMENTS.
A. Prerequisites. This task requires knowledge of the part
and FAA policies, and qualification as an Operations ASI. In addition, the Operations ASI should have completed the appropriate initial pilot type rating course or be considered
“best qualified” by the Flight Standards Inspector Resource Program (FSIRP). The Operations ASI must have completed an initial or recurrent pilot type rating course within
the previous 12 months or hold an LOA or waiver authorizing Operations ASI to conduct the practical test.
B. Coordination. This task requires coordination with the airworthiness
unit and with the airmen records section of the Airmen Certification Branch

A. Schedule Appointment. Advise the applicant to bring the following documents to the appointment:
· A properly completed FAA Form
· A Private, Commercial, or ATP Certificate;
· An appropriate class of medical certificate Statement of Demonstrated Ability (SODA),
· A knowledge test report, if applicable;
· An FAA-approved, part
pilot school graduation certificate, if applicable;
· Personal logbook or other records substantiating the flight experience
shown on the application form;
· The aircraft maintenance records;
· The aircraft Certificate of Airworthiness;
· The aircraft registration;
· The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) aircraft station license, if applicable; and
· An acceptable form of photo identification.
B. Applicant Arrives for Appointment.
1) Collect and review the documents listed above.
2) Open the PTRS record.
C. Review Application. Verify that the information on the application (FAA Form
is presented accurately and completely.
1) In section I, ensure that the applicant has completed the Additional Aircraft Rating section and selected “Private,”
“Commercial,” or “ATP,” as appropriate. Ensure that the applicant has selected any other applicable boxes, such as “Added Rating.”
2) Ensure that the remainder of the application is completed in accordance with the instructions attached to the form and the information in
Volume 5, Chapter 1, Section 3.
3) If the applicant is applying for a Private or Commercial Pilot Certificate in conjunction with a type rating, ensure that the recommending instructor
has provided an endorsement no more than 2 calendar‑months before the application was submitted.
4) In section III of the application, Record of Pilot Time, the applicant must list at least the aeronautical experience required for the Airman
Certificate and rating sought. Graduates of part
pilot schools or part
training centers must provide their aeronautical experience in section III on the application even though the graduation certificate is evidence of having completed the course of
training. If aeronautical experience has no bearing on the airman certification action being sought, it is not necessary for an applicant to complete section III. Flight instructor
renewal applications, flight instructor reinstatement applications, ground instructor qualification applications, and pilot type rating applications would be examples where aeronautical
experience would not have a bearing on the airman certification action, and thus the applicant would not be required to complete section III. However, all applicants are encouraged to
complete section III, because FAA Form
on file with the FAA and can be used to substantiate past aeronautical experience if a person were to ever lose his or her logbook.
D. Verify Applicant’s Identity. Inspect acceptable forms of identification to establish the applicant’s identity (see
Volume 5, Chapter 1, Section 3).
Compare the identification with the personal information provided on FAA Form
1) If the applicant’s identity can be verified, proceed with the practical test.
2) If the applicant’s identity cannot be verified because of lack of identification or inadequate identification, explain what types of
identification are acceptable. Advise the applicant to return with appropriate identification to reapply.
3) If the applicant’s identity appears to be different from the information supplied on
FAA Form 8710-1,
or it appears that an attempt at falsification has been made, do not continue this task. Inform the applicant that the practical test cannot be accomplished until the applicant’s
identity can be properly verified. (See
Volume 5, Chapter 1, Section 3,
subparagraph 5-54F, Applicant Identification Anomalies.)
E. Establish Eligibility. Determine if the applicant meets the type rating requirements of §
(6), as appropriate.
1) If the applicant is upgrading a pilot certificate, ensure that the applicant meets the general eligibility, aeronautical knowledge, aeronautical
experience, and flight proficiency requirements for the grade of certificate sought.
2) Verify that the applicant holds an airman medical certificate appropriate to the certificate/rating sought.
3) Inspect the medical certificate to ensure that it does not bear any limitation that would make a special medical flight test necessary. (See Volume 5, Chapter 8.)
4) Check the record of flight time in section III of the application to determine if the applicant has the minimum flight experience required for the
type rating/grade of pilot certificate sought.
5) If the applicant is applying for a test based on graduation from an approved pilot school, inspect the applicant’s graduation certificate to
verify that the applicant meets the requirements of §
6) Examine the applicant’s logbook and/or other reliable record(s) to verify that all aeronautical knowledge, aeronautical experience, and the
required instructor endorsements for ground and flight training are recorded.
7) If the applicant is upgrading a certificate or concurrently obtaining an instrument rating, examine the knowledge test report or test report from an
approved school with knowledge test authority, as applicable.
8) If the applicant has checked the “Yes” box of section IV of the application, verify that the applicant meets the requirements of §
9) Several questions have been raised concerning the standards and testing to determine whether an applicant can read, speak, write, and understand the
English language (refer to Advisory Circular (AC)
English Language Skills Required by 14 CFR Parts
While there are no
to ascertain the applicant’s English language ability, the following examples may be used as guidelines in this evaluation:
a) An Operations ASI may ask the applicant to listen to a tape recording of an air traffic control (ATC) clearance or instructions, and then ask the applicant
to speak and explain the clearance or instructions back to the Operations ASI in the English language.
b) An applicant may be asked to write down in English the meaning of an ATC clearance, instructions, or a weather report, then asked to speak and explain
the clearance, instructions, or weather report back to the Operations ASI in the English language.
10) The intent is not to require the applicant to read, speak, write, and understand the English language at college-level standards. A common-sense
approach should be used in evaluating an applicant for this requirement (refer to §
F. Aircraft Requirements. Review, or arrange for an Airworthiness ASI to review, the applicant’s aircraft maintenance records, logbooks, Airworthiness
Certificate, and aircraft registration to determine if the aircraft is Airworthy and suitable for this practical test. Ensure that a type rating exists for the aircraft and determine if
the aircraft is certificated under SFAR 41 for single-pilot operation. After review, return the documents to the applicant.
G. FSTD Use. In accordance with §
an FSTD may only be used for the practical test in accordance with an approved course of training under part
Contact the National Simulator Program (AFS-205) with any questions concerning the permitted tasks when using FSTDs on practical tests. Additionally, applicants are not required to have
a valid medical certificate when accomplishing a practical test in an FSTD. (Refer to §
H. Discrepancies. If a discrepancy that cannot be immediately corrected exists in any of the documents, return the application and all submitted documents
to the applicant. Inform the applicant of the reasons for ineligibility, and explain how the applicant may correct the discrepancies.
I. Conduct Practical Test. After determining the applicant is eligible and meets all prerequisites for the type rating/certificate sought, accept the
application and conduct the practical test. A preflight briefing must be conducted before the practical test. (See
Volume 5, Chapter 1, Section 4.)
1) Evaluate the areas of operation, tasks, and maneuvers outlined in the ATP and/or type rating
the category of aircraft for which a type rating is sought.
2) The Operations ASI may give an applicant who is retesting credit for those areas of operation successfully completed on the previous practical test,
provided the test was conducted within 60 days before the retest. If the previous test was conducted more than 60 days before the retest, the applicant must be tested in all areas.
3) When conducting type rating practical tests in aircraft for which a single pilot is authorized, ensure the single-pilot applicant satisfactorily
performs all pilot duties without assistance.
4) Require applicants for type ratings on aircraft not listed in the table found at
present evidence that at least one aircraft of the type concerned has been issued a U.S. TC in accordance with §
a standard airworthiness certificate or a Special Airworthiness Certificate). The website is maintained by AFS-760.
5) The aircraft, if TC’d under §
will not be operated for any purpose other than the purpose for which the Special Airworthiness Certificate was issued.
J. Discontinuance. If the practical test is not completed for reasons other than unsatisfactory performance, issue the applicant a Letter of Discontinuance
(see Figure 5-90).
1) Return the application and all other submitted documents to the applicant.
2) Close the PTRS record.
K. Unsatisfactory Performance. If the applicant did not meet the applicable standards for the certificate sought, inform the applicant of the reasons
for the unsatisfactory performance.
1) Prepare FAA Form 8060-5 in duplicate as per
Volume 5, Chapter 1, Section 6.
An example of a correctly completed form is found in Figure 5-87. In addition to those instructions:
a) Record all areas of operation that were unsatisfactory or not completed. If specific procedures and flight maneuvers need to be repeated, record them on the form.
b) Indicate the number of the applicant’s practical test failures for this certificate or rating.
2) Sign, date, and check the appropriate boxes on the form. Give the applicant a copy of the Notice of Disapproval of Application and retain the original
for the certification file.
3) Retain the FAA Form
return all other submitted documents to the applicant.
L. Satisfactory Performance. When the applicant has satisfactorily met all requirements for the type rating/certificate sought, prepare FAA Form 8060-4
(see Figure 5-91), in accordance with the guidance in
Volume 5, Chapter 1, Section 5.
2) Enter all previous category, class, and type ratings, including any limitations held by the applicant.
3) Enter the type rating under the appropriate Airman Certificate privileges.
4) Enter any required operating limitations such as “CV-PBY5 LIMITED TO SEA” or “N‑B25 VFR ONLY.”
5) For type ratings issued for SFAR 41 or commuter category aircraft when single-pilot competency was not demonstrated, enter the limitation “[insert
appropriate aircraft type] SECOND IN COMMAND REQUIRED.”
6) Verify all information on the form is correct. Sign the certificate and direct the airman to sign line VII of the form. The original and temporary
certificates must have original signatures for both the applicant and the inspector/examiner.
7) Retain the original for the file and give the applicant the copy of the temporary certificate.
8) If the pilot certificate is issued in a foreign country, refer to §
61.13(a) and part
187 appendix A.
M. Complete the Certification File. Complete the certification file and return to the applicant all submitted documents not forwarded to AFS-760.
N. PTRS. Complete the PTRS record in accordance with the PPM.
5-735 TASK OUTCOMES. Completion of this task results in the issuance of one of the following:
· Temporary Airman Certificate;
· Notice of Disapproval of Application; or
· Letter of Discontinuance.
5-736 FUTURE ACTIVITIES:
· Applicant may return for another type rating, and
· Applicant may return for an upgraded certificate.
