Part 141 CPL transfer credits

Asked by: 760 views Commercial Pilot, FAA Regulations, Flight Instructor, Student Pilot

IAW CFR Title 14 → Chapter I → Subchapter H → Part 141 Subpart E 141.77

If a student has completed a PPL and IFR part 141 course are they entitled to transfer up to 50% of the PART 141 CPL curriculum.

For Example. the Dual instruction total requirement is 55hrs. does that mean that 27.5 is transferred from PPL and IFR. Leaving 27.5 hours to be completed.

Best Regards.

    I’m not sure what it is that you are asking.

    Are you staying in the same school and wanting to apply the dual from the Private and Instrument to their Commercial course?

    Or, are you enrolling in School B’s Commercial course and wanting to credit time from School A’s Private and Instrument courses?

    Either way, you can’t do it. The transfer must be between courses for the same certificate or rating.

    If you had enrolled in School A’s Commercial course and decided to finish your training at School B, 141.77 allows you (under the stated circumstances) to credit up to 50% of the Commercial training received from School A towards the requirements of School B’s Commercial course.
