Special Provisions for obtaining a Sport Pilot Certificate
 


61.329 Are there special provisions for obtaining a sport pilot certificate for persons who are registered ultralight pilots with an FAA-recognized ultralight organization?

(a)  If you are a registered ultralight pilot with an FAA-recognized ultralight organization use the following table to determine how to obtain a sport pilot certificate.
             
            (1)  A registered ultralight pilot with an FAA-recognized ultralight organization on or before September 1, 2004, and you want to apply for a sport pilot certificate,         

                        (i)  Not later than January 31, 2007--
                                    (A)  Meet the eligibility requirements in 61.305 and 61.23, but not the aeronautical knowledge requirements specified in 61.309, the flight proficiency requirements specified in 61.311, and the aeronautical experience requirements specified in 61.313,
                                    (B)  Pass the knowledge test for a sport pilot certificate specified in 61.307 or the knowledge test for a flight instructor certificate with a sport pilot rating specified in 61.405,
                                    (C) Pass the practical test for a sport pilot certificate specified in 61.307,
                                    (D)  Provide the FAA with a certified copy of your ultralight pilot records from an FAA-recognized ultralight organization, and those records must--
                                                (1)  Document that you are a registered ultralight pilot with that FAA-recognized ultralight organization, and
                                                (2)  Indicate that you are recognized to operate each category and class of aircraft for which you seek sport pilot privileges.


           
  (2) A registered ultralight pilot with an FAA-recognized ultralight organization after  September 1, 2004,  and you want to apply for a sport pilot certificate,
                       (i)  Meet the eligibility requirements in 61.305 and 61.23,
                       (ii)  Meet the aeronautical knowledge requirements specified in 61.309, the flight proficiency requirements specified in 61.311, and aeronautical experience requirements specified in 61.313; however, you may credit your ultralight aeronautical experience in accordance with 61.52  toward the requirements in 61.309, 61.311, and 61.313,
                       (iii) Pass the knowledge and practical tests for a sport pilot certificate specified in 61.307, and
                       (iv) Provide the FAA with a certified copy of your ultralight pilot records from an FAA-recognized ultralight organization, and those records must--
                                   (A)  Document that you are a registered ultralight pilot with that FAA-recognized ultralight organization, and
                                   (B)  Indicate that you are recognized to operate the category and class of aircraft for which you seek sport pilot privileges.


(b)  When you successfully pass the practical test for a sport pilot certificate, the FAA will issue you a sport pilot certificate without any category and class ratings.  The FAA will provide you with a logbook endorsement for the category, class, and make and model of aircraft in which you have successfully passed the practical test and for which you are authorized to act as pilot in command.  If you meet the provisions of paragraph (a)(1) of this section, the FAA will provide you with a logbook endorsement for each category, class, and make and model of aircraft listed on the ultralight pilot records you provide to the FAA.
