JAR-FCL 1.1016

(a) An applicant for a JAR-FCL license and IR, if applicable, already holding at least an equivalent license issued in accordance with ICAO Annex 1 by a non JAA-State shall meet all the requirements of JAR-FCL, except that the requirements of course duration, number of lessons and specific training hours may be reduced.The Authority may be guided as to the credits to be granted on the basis of a recommendation from an appropriate training organisation.

(b) The holder of an ATPL(A) issued in accordance with ICAO Annex 1 who meets the 1500 hours flying experiece requirements on multi-pilot aeroplanes as PIC or co-pilot of Appendix 1 to JAR-FCL 1.1015 may be exempted from the requirements to undergo approved training prior to undertaking the theoretical knowledge examinations and the skill test, if that license contains a valid multi-pilot type rating forthe aeroplane to be used for the ATPL(A) skill test.
