Upon completing basic flight training, you will present yourself at the Coast Guard Aviation Training Center (ATC) in Mobile, Alabama, and learn how to fly a Coast Guard aircraft. When exercising the privileges of a pilot certificate, at least one private or commercial pilot certificate with an instrument qualification or an air transport pilot certificate must be obtained. To do this, you must receive and record ground training from an authorized instructor or take a training course at home on the areas of aeronautical knowledge that apply to the requested instrument qualification. Additionally, you must receive ground and flight training from an authorized instructor on the cross-country training requirements of subpart E of this part that apply to the aircraft qualification in power.
Company control pilots who are authorized to perform flight tests with instruments under parts 121, 125 or 135 of this chapter or subpart K of part 91 of this chapter can also be credited with the required hours. A maximum of 5 hours of training can be credited on a flight simulator or flight training device that represents the category, class and type, if applicable, of aircraft appropriate to the requested qualification, for the flight training time required in this section if the training is carried out in a course taught by a certified training center according to part 142 of this chapter. Foreign pilots who hold a valid license must also meet certain requirements. These include medical documentation and a special-purpose pilot authorization issued under this section.
Furthermore, they must have their foreign pilot's license and medical documentation in physical possession or be able to access them immediately on the aircraft. In order to obtain a pilot aptitude test, recreational pilots must meet the appropriate aeronautical knowledge and flight training requirements of § 61.87 for that aircraft. Private pilots who are aircraft sellers and have at least 200 recorded flight hours can show an aircraft in flight to a prospective purchaser. Pilots with a lighter-than-air flight classification or a free balloon that was issued after June 30, 1945 may be reissued without an expiration date. Additionally, two training flights of 1 hour each in a balloon with an airborne heater with an authorized instructor in preparation for the practical test within 2 calendar months prior to the month of the test are required. In conclusion, pilots who have completed their initial pilot training in Central Oklahoma need to take written tests in order to obtain their pilot certificate and instrument qualification.
They must also meet certain requirements such as medical documentation and special-purpose pilot authorization issued under this section. Furthermore, they must have their foreign pilot's license and medical documentation in physical possession or be able to access them immediately on the aircraft.
