Allows a person to be issued a U.S. pilot certificate with private pilot privileges on the basis of a foreign
pilot license that is equivalent to or higher than the U.S. private pilot certification level. The foreign pilot
license must have been issued by a foreign Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) that is a member state of
the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and the foreign pilot license must be valid. The
holder of a valid foreign pilot license issued by an ICAO member state may use that foreign pilot
license as the basis for issuance of a U.S. pilot certificate even if the issuing country is now defunct
(e.g., the Russian Federation).
