although this is an aviation related topic, I didn't find where else to put it. I was wondering about getting around and seeing the world with my own eyes. I am aviation mechanic witholding the EASA CAT-A license and was wondering if there are any countries outside the EU and the ECAC nations that accredit this standard or what type of transformation possibilities there are.
For example: I am witholding CAT A3 for Bell206/206L - would a US company (or better FAA) accredit my qualification or would it need me to redo the FAA standard tests for qualification although I would/could work on the same types as here? I am guessing on having to redo all of it.
To be honest I didn't look up any of this yet, as I'm not planning on doing this in the near future but I do know I want to get around some day. If anyone has any experience with working abroad as a mechanic (not including european companies or those controlled by european agencies) I'd apreciate any advice. Any english, french or spanish speaking country would come into my shortlist. Or actually any information to any country at all would be interesting.
Maybe we could start a list, stating wich requirements are needed for certifying staff in certain countries.
I guess I'll start out with europe:
Regulation (EC) 2042/2003 of Nov.20.2003 part66 (specific: Part66.A.15, 66.A.20, 66.A.25, 66.A.30, 66.A.45)
I actually planed to type it down but I'll leave my hands off of that. All that bureaucratic language is too much for me - anyhow its all in there.
