Im pretty sure you would have to take the same type ride as anyone else to get it put on your certificate. Theres a few TC holders of the 47 these days but once youre typed it shows up as BV234

Maybe some of the prior service folks can share past experience on adding a type rating to their CPL

Are you able to attain the FAA type rating for the Chinook if you are qualified on the CH47F?
