Validating canadian atpl to faa
If I convert my FAA commercial certificate and instrument rating to a Canadian commercial certificate and instrument rating, do I lose my FAA certificates? I know the local FSDO would be able to answer this, but has anyone actually done it? Not sure as to what you are referring to when you say "convert" many of the countries that are in ICAO (in this case the US and Canada) have an agreement of validation of licenses that usually involves less paperwork, exams and you get a validation of the license, they are based on your original license of the issuing country and you have to have that license valid to be able to operate with the validation, now, there is another procedure (and I recommend that you do so) that is to take all the required tests (some might be credited based on your previous certificate) and use the experience that you have already acquired to get an independent license so that you have two certificates instead of a validation based on one certificate.
2) An appt with any transport canada Licencing office, you can even walk in but an appt is better. You are basically tested only on the Ground School Courses This website pilot training dot CA is the best or 0 spent......
If you plan on taking an ATP checkride based on your foreign certificates at our Fort Lauderdale (FXE) location, examiners will expect you to have at least a U. Private Pilot certificate in order to act as pilot-in-command during your checkride.
This will involve making an appointment at the local FSDO office to obtain.

I have no experience for ATP but I just got a Canadian CPL based on FAA Commercial about 3 weeks ago.
If planned right, the whole process can all be done in 1 day or 2 at the most.... I have got a lot of good advise here, so I am always open to return the favour with whatever I can..... I went through the conversion process for FAA ATP to TC ATPL.
