FAA / ICAO Conversion

Conversion of a faa / icao-lIcENse to a easa-lIcENse

US FAA-issued licenses and licenses issued in ICAO-compliant countries can be converted into an EASA license. The conversion always includes at least one theory exam on a few or all subjects, as well as a test flight with an expert from the relevant Civil Aviation Authority. We have supported numerous pilots at all license levels to convert their foreign ICAO license and can look back on a great deal of experience.

Here are the key conditions that must be met for a conversion.

The number of flight hours required for the conversion varies depending on the flight experience. We are happy to provide you with a personal and non-binding offer. All theory can be learned for each license level via our e-learning platform. In general, we expect about 10 hours of theory and 10 hours flying time to become familiar with the Swiss airspaces and procedures.
