The FAA extended to June 6 next year the compliance deadline for the new second-in-command type rating requirements for international operations. The rule, published August 4, had an original deadline of September 6.
Pilots will have several more months to comply with the new second-in-command (SIC) type rating rule. Published on August 4, the rule had an effective date of September 6, after which pilots serving as second-in-command would have to have an SIC type rating when flying to international destinations. However, at press time the FAA was preparing a notice that would establish a compliance deadline of March 6 next year.
Unless the FAA makes a last-minute change to the timetable, pilots have until June 6 to comply with a new second-in-command (SIC) type-rating rule. The rule requires pilots serving as second-in-command to have an SIC type rating when flying to international destinations (see FAR Parts 61.5 and 61.55).
