Type rating[edit]

I believe the statement that a type rating is required to act as co-pilot is incorrect. Obviously the Pilot-In-Command would require a type rating, but I believe that in the US, only Part 121 operations require that a copilot have a type rating in an aircraft that requires a type rating to act as pilot in command. I believe that is for compliance with ICAO regulations, and does not apply to operations under Part 135 or Part 91. I will change the notation in 30 days unless somebody can point out a FAR that shows that I am wrong (I might be, but I'm 95% certain). —Preceding unsigned comment added by MusketeeerMan (talkcontribs)

UF-2G[edit]

The article mentions a UF-2 as a German variant, and a UF-1G as a Coast Guard variant, but I have seen photos of a Coast Guard aircraft marked "UF-2G"...what was the difference with this version? 173.60.179.233 (talk) 00:41, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
