I´m at work and can´t sleep (before the jokes start: I´m a firefighter and we work in 24 hour shifts, so we are allowed to sleep on the job), so I got bored enough to browse through the deepest intestines of the EAA website. After some random browsing I eventually stumbled upon their current list of type ratings.
In Table 8 (Type Ratings List (Aeroplane) - Multi Pilot) it says the B777-200 series, the B777-300 series, the B777F and the B787-8 series can all be flown with a Class D license and a B777/787 Endorsement. In other words: They share a type rating.
Is this known to the AS crew, or have I overlooked something? Would be great to hear what others think.
Off topic: Where are you a firefighter? I'm a firefighter, Paramedic and Battalion Chief assistant, in Copenhagen, Denmark ;)
Nice! Always good to meet a fellow brother! Cheers! I guess your profile pic should have clued me in much earlier... :lol:
If you can read ICAO codes you should be able to figure out where I work... ;)
What does it say about the 767-400ER?
It´s right there in the same table actually. It says the B757-200 series, - 300 series, B767-200 series, - 300 series, - 300F series and B767-400ER can all be flown with a class D license and a B757/767 endorsement.
Specifically for the 764 it also says the following:
The differences training course is valid from the B757/767 "classic" to the B767-400ER for crew members previously
qualified on the B757/767 “classic” variants.The 767-400ERto B757/767 “classic” differences training shall be evaluated or
the full type rating training shall be accomplished.
