I’ve heard that a few days ago the FAA has stopped the “validaton” possibility to get a foreign ICAO license validated for private flying of n-registered airplanes. They say Part 61.75 is being revised, but why would they suspend 61.75 while it’s being revised if they didn’t want to make any major changes (restrictions)?
Anybody know something about the issue? Is it because of terrorism or just because of the administrative costs? American flight schools sure won’t like that because many depend largely on foreign pilots.
If this remains the status quo, it will also definitely make it more difficult sell the second half of our '20 here in Europe as long as it is n-registered…
