CLASS & AIRCRAFT TYPE

A class rating allows the pilot to fly a certain group of aircraft that require training common to all aircraft within the group.

A type rating is specified if a particular aircraft requires additional specialized training beyond the scope of initial license and aircraft class training.

Almost all single engine piston (SEP) or multi engine piston (MEP) single pilot aircraft can be flown without a type rating, but are covered by a class rating instead.

Aircrafts that require a type rating are decided by the local aviation authority.
