FAA releases procedure for 'unrestricted' pilot certificate

For Canadian pilots seeking an "unrestricted" certificate to allow them to fly U.S.-registered aircraft in the United States, the process should be a little smoother.

The FAA recently issued Order N 8000.364, which explains the requirements, whom to contact, and how the procedure works. The order is available to everyone in the aviation industry and has been sent to the flight standards district offices (FSDOs) - the offices responsible for the conversion. This should alleviate confusion caused by the FAA's advisory circular (released in December), which authorized the process but didn't provide enough direction to the FSDOs.
