QUESTION: Dear Deirdre

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviator

What are the eligibility criteria for Pilots to fly Local (Domestic) as well as International flights ?

i.e. Educational Certificate Training qualifications, No of Hours Flight Operations etc

Pilot will require separate Commercial Aircraft Flying Licenses Permits each for Domestic and International flight operations ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

ANSWER: Usually, a pilot does not require separate certification by each country. There may be different rules regarding customs procedures - a pilot entering the United States must land at an official port of entry. Here is one article discussing this from the US perspective.

QUESTION: Dear Deirdre

Thank you.

Pilot will require separate Commercial Aircraft Flying Licenses Permits each for Domestic and International flight operations ?

As a example,

A Pilot flying aircraft within India working for a commercial domestic airline carrier would now like to work for a commercial international airline carrier, in this case he/she will be flying overseas the aircraft, so a separate international aircraft flying license permit is required ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
You don't necessarily need a license in each country. There is something called "reciprocity", in which a license granted in one country is viewed as valid in other countries. Generally, if a country is part of the ICAO (the International Civil Aviation Organization - part of the United Nations), a license in one country will be considered valid in others.
