FAQ n.19088

I hold a Category A1 Part-66 licence. What are the requirements to extend my licence to Category B1.1?

Answer

Basically, the requirements to extend a cat A licence towards a cat B1.1 are demonstration of :

  • the basic knowledge required for the relevant subcategory B1.1; and
  • the experience required by Appendix IV to Part-66.

Two years of practical maintenance experience on operating aircraft in the B1.1 category (not in the A category) is needed before applying for the extension in addition to the demonstration of basic knowledge required for the relevant subcategory B1.1.

The experience requirement will be reduced by 50% if the applicant has completed an approved Part-147 course relevant to the category extension according to Appendix IV of Part-66.
