Commercial Pilot Rating

Asked by: 1772 views Uncategorized

I'm a rotorcraft CFI and I want to add on a fixed wing commercial license (I do not have my fixed wing private).  Since I'm already a rated pilot (rotorcraft) what is the requirement for cross country signoffs?  Do I need a 90 day endorsement from my instructor for each airport outside of 25NM?  I don't believe I do since I'm already a rated pilot.  Since my instructor has endorsed me to fly solo solo (with a xwind limitation) I believe that permits me to fly to airports of my choosing at my discretion.  Thoughts?

    You are no longer a student pilot so the only endorsement you need is one authorizing you to be a PIC in airplanes for solo operations only. There are no limits put on such an endorsement unless your CFI specifies them- it does not even expire unless there is an expiration put on it. I have trained a number of Army pilots in your situation and have some information on my website.
