Student with ATP looking to add-on a Single Engine rating...
Got a student coming in for a week first week of August, wants to get a Single Engine Add-on. Has 2500 hours in an F-15, holds a Multi-engine ATP. Wants to get Single. Likely take him through Commercial Single Engine, but wanted to see if I was correct in looking at the Single Engine ATP add-on.
61.165 gives the requirements for the Single Add-on, and if I'm correct, these are the requirements:
Another Written based on 61.155(c) (seriously?!)
Must meet 61.157(b) - get training from an instructor with an ATP rating, get endorsed to take the ride, Checkride to instrument standards
So, reading this, to merely add on a single engine to his ATP Multi rating, he has to take another written, get trained by another ATP CFI, and then signed off? Wow, this has changed a lot. If this is all the case, I can't do that for him. After speaking with him, he is fine getting the CSEL, just need to make sure all my ducks are in a row with that. He has to have single privileges already, correct?
