FOR PILOTS NOT HOLDING AN FAA LICENSE BUT HOLDING A TRANSPORT CANADA LICENSE: It is a relatively simple process for holders of the Canadian Commercial License to obtain the FAA License thanks to a special agreement between the FAA and Transport Canada: All TC License holders need to do is contact an FAA FSDO (Flight Standards District Office) and make arrangements to take the written conversion exam.
FOR PILOTS NOT HOLDING AN FAA OR TRANSPORT CANADA LICENSE BUT HOLDING AN ICAO LICENSE (EASA FROZEN ATPL, AUSTRALIAN CASA CPL IR ME, ETC): Once pilots are approved to join, they can then complete at their own expense the FAA license conversion training with the FAA flight school of their choice.
