International ferry questions

Recommended Posts

I have been presented with a potential opportunity to pick up and ferry a Canadian registered aircraft being purchased out of Canada to the ol US of eh.

I am a dual citizen and licensed commercial pilot in both countries. Have current FAA class 1 medical. Haven't been back to Canada in a few years to renew Canadian medical. I have the FCC radio operators certificate.

Will my FAA class 1 be recognized as an ICAO equivalent to complete said flight?

Besides all the appropriate documents for a canadian registered aircraft, logbook inspection, thorough preflight, etc, what do I need to have/do to cover my ass here?

I am somewhat familiar with the Airport of entry/customs requirements, I have registered for the EAPIS system, and believe I understand the reporting requirements associated with that. I understand there needs to be a mode c transponder and ELT on board.

Any input is appreciated, its an exciting opportunity, but if I'm going to do this I need to thoroughly insure my ass is covered.

Thanks you,

Forgot to mention that I have the required experience in the aircraft model to get the pesky canadian type rating required for each model flown as well.
