ATP H Rating

Asked by: 38081 views FAA Regulations

Once I acquire my ATP H privileges, am I able to perform flight instruction? And if so, what does it include?

    Not sure where this notion comes from.

    See 61.167(b). With an ATP, you can instruct other pilots in air transportation.
    Pretty much, that means if you are employed by a Part 135 operator (there aren’t any 121 helicopter operations), you can instruct the pilots for that operator under its approved training program.

    You don’t need the ATP to perform that instruction. You can instruct in Part 135 if you are trained and designated as a flight instructor for the operator.

    Thanks Kris, just wanted some clarity on the issue, because I’m studying for my ATP H at the moment and one of the questions states under your ATP H authority, you can instruct in air transportation, but not in a aircraft, simulator etc etc, was a little confusing to me, thanks for the clarity
