Should/can I tick the box for Turbojet Airplane Type Rating on AirlineApps if I have type ratings on my ICAO ATPL, but not on my FAA ATP?

I converted my ICAO ATPL to an FAA ATP, but didnít want to spend more for a type rating on my FAA ATP thinking my time on the aircraft would speak for itself.

Considering the previous tabs are looking for information about your FAA certificates, it would seem the question about the turbojet type rating would refer to the FAA ATP. If you want your foreign license info to be known about, I would put the training you did for it under the education history section as professional development courses. Thatís the way I handled it.

As an aside, I know some pilots (mostly non-US) out there use the term ICAO ATPL to describe any other countryís ATP other than the US but itís a pretty useless tag. The full FAA ATP is ICAO compliant and therefore an ďICAO ATPĒ itself. Not sure how the practice got started but itís a misnomer.

Thanks for your response. I was thinking the same, that it refers to the FAA ATP. Thank you for that suggestion. That seems to be a good way to go about it.

I understand what you're saying. I can't speak for others, but in my case I'm aware that the FAA ATP is ICAO compliant and an "ICAO ATP" itself. I just prefer to refer to my foreign license, for the purpose of this thread, in the most general term "ICAO ATPL" vs "ICAO compliant ATPL issued by X aviation authority" to keep it short and to stay anonymous by not mentioning the country I'm currently working in.

Not familiar with AirlineApps... but can you indicate the member state of issuance of your ATPL? It may be required when any particular carrier conducts their PRIA and background check. Or perhaps you can contact the vendor for guidance.

US airlines require FAA ATP
If you are trying for a US airline put your FAA ATP otherwise they will never drop your app for review
A type on a foreign license is not going to help you
