The first step to convert a non european licence is the succesfull pass of the 14 subjects of the ATPL theory. The flight training phase of the conversion depends on the applicant's previous experience. Then a skill test with a certified EASA examiner must be passed. For the endorsement of a Type Rating on the EASA licence the applicant should have at least 500 hours on type.
