Hi im 17yo male in the UK. I have failed the CAD test, so no class 1 for me for now. The plan is for me to move to america to do their OCVT+MFT to obtain an unrestricted FAA class 1 so i can fly commercially over there. Obviously it would be great if the OCVA got approved in the UK but im thinking it will take a number of years (like 10 years maybe). Have there been any developments in getting the CAA to approve it?
Also, i had a friend briefly tell me if i get an LoE from The FAA to get a class 1, i could get the CAA to approve that LoE and allow me to get a class 1 in the UK. Is there any truth to that?
