Putting EC225 on Australian CPL/APTL?

Postby Surprise » Thu Apr 24 2014, 11:37

Hello

I have a quick question about my EC225 (which is on a foreign License) endorsed onto my Australian License.

Ive done some research and found out whats required etc. However I believe in Aus its listed as AS332 (and not EC225). All my training records and endorsements etc show EC225.

The only reason I ask is because I hear stories about ex Mil guys not being able to transfer endorsements (eg theres no Civilian Equivalent of Seahawk, so no type is give on their Civilian CPL)

Before I go ahead and submit my paperwork to CASA, is anyone able to shed any light on this? Reckon I'll have a problem?

Thanks in advance

Luckily for you there is a civilian equivalent to the military 225 (725 if I'm not mistaken) and you are quite correct in CASA classifying the 225 under the 332 type endorsement. It's an often discussed topic as to how and why the latter is the way it is though :roll:

Whether or not you have a problem depends on how much of a care factor the person has when you call them to query or submit your paperwork for their 'assessment'.

CAO 40.3.0 is the reference and the 332 is a CLASS endorsement not a TYPE endorsement. The 332 covers 332 and 225 variants.

You're quite right there Oogle. The 332 and 225 are categorised in the same class endorsement despite there being (arguably) some quite significant differences between the types.
