Default Type ratings

The current type ratings table can be found here:

Https://registry.faa.gov/typeratings...ting_table.pdf

you then need to compare the actual type certificate involved to clarify what's included, and sorry to say that marketing name gimmicks often don't appear anywhere. Here is the link to look up the TCDS:

Where along the Citation line does it stop? ie, Does a Citation Encore fly under a "Bravo Type"? I have heard conflicting information from guys, so I am looking for clarification. And since I don't know a Citation Soverign from a Citation Mustang....I ask stupid questions.

I was initially told that my boss would not pay for training unless I agreed to FT work. FT work was not an option I was interested in. Yet, later on, they sent me anyway even though I had only agreed to PT work. So, this is why I was grateful. I'll never buy a type.
There is no such thing as a "Bravo type". Your license says CE500. The CE500 covers the Citation 500, I, I/SP, II, II/SP, V, Ultra, Encore, and Bravo.

The FAA doesn't require any kind of differences training. The insurance company may have other ideas though.

I’ll wager the FAA counters your statement. You may wish to consult the FAA’s FSB report regarding the CE-500 and differences training requirements.
