    Read FAR 61.73, then call the local FSDO.

    Hopefully this link will work:

    http://fsims.faa.gov/wdocs/8900.1/v05%20airman%20cert/chapter%2002/05_002_015rev1.pdf

    Start reading at paragraph 5-618 after you have read the regulation and you’ll know what the FSDO should tell you to bring to the FSDO. Then the only thing you need to do is get the documents organized and make an appointment with the FSDO.

    I don\’t know the poster\’s status, but I\’d like to point out that 61.73 specifically addresses US military pilots or military pilots from ICAO countries performing flight duties with the US military, in a non-student status, who already have an ICAO-conformant civil certificate.

    A German Air Force pilot will not get FAA certificates based on German military competency unless he/she is assigned to flight duties with the US military. Even then, if he/she doesn\’t have a German/EASA license…

    Of course, none of that prevents a foreign military pilot from taking one or more written tests and prepping for one or more checkrides since the FAA counts all the flight time. (VISA/TSA stuff applies too.)

    Good luck to the OP!
