Basic Cockpit Training
The multi-crew cooperation course is aimed at pilots without experience in a two-person cockpit. The training underscores the development of nontechnical skills for working in a multi-crew environment. The objectives of the MCC training are optimal decision-making, communication, allocation of duties, use of checklists, reciprocal monitoring, teamwork, and support during all stages of flying in normal, abnormal, and emergency situations.
By participating in one of our type rating courses, your crews acquire the type rating for one of the current commercial aircrafts. The courses are run in accordance with the specifications of the JAR-FCL and supplemented by elements tailored to the practices of your airline.
Our courses include:
- System knowledge transfer with the aid of e-learning programs
- Handling of normal and abnormal procedures
- Nontechnical skills training as a component of line-oriented flight training
The Bridge Course enables inexperienced trainees to successfully complete a type rating course. The overall philosophy associated with the men-machine interface in highly advanced flight decks is introduced. The importance of clear duty distribution between the PF (Pilot Flying) and the PM (Pilot Monitoring) will be underlined.
The cross-crew qualification course is a shorter type rating for Airbus pilots who already possess an Airbus type rating for one of the aircraft types A320, A330, A340, or A380 but who would now like to switch to another type.
Example: a pilot switches from an A320 to an A330.
The pilot possesses a valid type rating but has no experience of a particular model within the aircraft type. The Familiarization training is conducted with the help of handouts, e-learning programs, or classroom instruction. Generally, practical training with a full flight simulator or a flat-panel trainer is not required.
Example: a pilot should be able to operate an A319 alongside an A320.
Recurrent training serves to maintain the aircraft type qualification for which pilots possess a type rating. Participants refresh their type-related knowledge regarding system functions and procedures. The courses include e-learning programs and full-flight simulator training. The training ends with a proficiency check in the full flight simulator in accordance with Regulation Air Crew or Regulation Air Operations.
