Type Ratings CE-500, 525, 560XL
CE-500 Type Rating; good for the Citation 500, 501, 550, 551 & 560. Cessna uses the names: Citation, Citation SP, V, Ultra, Encore & Bravo. All require the common CE-500 Type Rating and a Co-Pilot with at least a Private, Multi & Instrument.
The 501 & 551 can be flown by one CE-500 Type Rated pilot with a fully operational Auto Pilot/ Flight Director in the left seat with an operational boom mike. The other models require a special Single Pilot School in order to comply with the STC and or Exemption; and that school is $10,000 dollars US. The Letter of Authorization is only good for that pilot in that N number Citation.
Hiring a co-pilot by the day is a better deal.

A non US Citizen who has a Foreign Type Rating or Training (non typed co-pilot) in an A/C over 12,500 lbs must complete a TSA Back Ground Check which is applied for by the Applicant via Web Site prior to starting training. I am a TSA Preferred Provider & I can assist.
A non USA applicant must fill out the FAA Verification of Pilot & Medical Certificate if he/she wishes to add a Type Rating to his/her US License which is based on the Foreign License. A non USA Applicant must also pass the long FAA Written Test for Instrument-Pilot. Then get ground & flight training & pass the Oral/Flight Check per the FAR’s & the Instrument Pilot PTS, ATP PTS. Plus get the TSA Background Check prior to starting training.
