The FAA offers the direct issuance of U.S. pilot certificates to holders of Canadian pilot certificates. Qualified Canadian pilots may take a condensed, knowledge test and earn an FAA pilot certificate based on their Canadian pilot certificate, without having to take a flight test. The FAA knowledge test is 40 questions for single engine (ASC), and 60 questions for multi engine (ACM). For ATP certificates with a multi-engine rating, the FAA requires completion of an ATP Certification Training Program (ATP-CTP). See FAA Knowledge Test Eligibility requirements section below.
