CRJs. Although I've heard many insurance companies will credit CL65 time towards the insurance requirements required to fly a CL60 (Challenger 600 series.)What aircraft would a CL-65 type allow you to operate as PIC without any further training?
Challenger 850/870/890 which are just converted CRJs.
That is correct, but I am pretty sure the TYPE is a different type rating. Anyone out there know a diffinitive answer on this?
Please do not pay for your own transition course, unless you are becoming a contract pilot. Paying for training for a job is ridiculous.
Where did you find this out. Is there a source? The only thing official i could find is an old FAA Advisory Circular from several years ago. That cleary showed the 600 series was different from cl65 crj. Nothing on the 850 or GE.CL-65:
CL-600 (challenger type):
CRJ 800 series:
Poor man's global
I am working on a corporate gig (again after waiting to upgrade :banghead and they fly the CL-604's and a 605. 2 type ratings although VERY similar. But its only the "short course" to transition- much like differences training between the CRJ's.
I just got a "dear john" email for a job flying an 850. Reason: CL65 type is not an 850 type. I thought it was interchangeable because it's a converted 50 seater. Apparently it's a different type. Maybe it's due to having longer range fuel tanks or other slight differences. Maybe it's an airline conspiracy to make a CL65 type even more worthless
The amount of misinformation on this website is absolutely ridiculous.
