The FAA is seeking comments on its proposal to upgrade Part 121 pilot certification experience requirements. The new standards would require airline first officers to hold an ATP certificate with a type rating, and airline captain applicants to have at least 1,000 hours of flight time in air carrier operations.

The FAA may also issue a restricted ATP to military pilots or some holders of aviation-related college degrees who have less than 1,500 hours total time. Multi-engine applicants will be expected to complete an ATP Certification Training program. The comment docket is open until April 29, 2012.
