Airbus A320 & Boeing 737
Why was this new course created?
During the APS MCC course, which is completed within the Airline Pilot Programme, students learn to coordinate in a multi-pilot cockpit and understand the pilots’ roles within it (MCC Multi Crew Co-operation).
In addition, this phase of the training, allows to understand the standard required for airline pilots initially getting acquainted with Medium Jet A320 (APS Airline Pilot Standards).
After completing our Commercial Pilot and Airline Transport Pilot courses, all of our students will meet airline entry requirements. At this point, they will have to carry out a personal interview as well as theoretical knowledge and practical tests with the airline itself.
Then, they complete a Type Rating which, in most cases, is in an Airbus A320 or Boeing 737, the two most important and popular commercial transport aircraft in the world.
Precisely for this last reason in which the students face a Type Rating for the first time, we decided to create a course that not only helps the student to successfully pass the Type Rating within the airline, but that allows them to, more than adequately, carry out simulator based practical entrance tests required by airlines.
That is why we have created the FTTC Full Type Training Course, where the student will learn in a hands-on way the operational characteristics of the two aircraft most widely operated by the world’s airlines, the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737.
Additionally, the student will also reinforce the theoretical entrance tests and personal interviews for acceptance to an airline.
→ 1 | SELF-STUDY COURSE MATERIAL.
In 360 degrees, videos and high resolution photos with general procedures on virtual platform and application for iPad as well as general and specific bibliography of all theoretical and practical components (distributed at least 2 weeks before course commencement).
→ 2 | ORIENTATION AND REINFORCEMENT OF THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE FOR AIRLINE ASSESSMENT.
6 hours classroom based training with current airline pilots. Orientation will be provided on the most important criteria according to various airlines in relation to the theoretical requirements.
→ 3 | PSYCOMETRIC TESTS AND GROUP DYNAMICS.
2 hours classroom based training with specialist psychologist. Examples and processes to follow based on the criteria of multiple airlines.
→ 4 | PREPARING FOR THE PERSONAL INTERVIEW.
2 hours classroom based training with specialist psychologist. Workshop during which several interviews will be analysed, focusing on the profiles sought by airlines.
→ 5 | THEORETICAL TYPE TRAINING AIRBUS A320.
10 hours. Imparted by active airline pilots with A320 type rating. The most important operational characteristics of the aircraft will be studied, as well as normal and emergency procedures, SOPs, flight phases, systems, use of the FMC, flight preparation, takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, approaches, etc.
→ 6 | THEORETICAL TYPE TRAINING BOEING 737.
10 hours. Imparted by current airline pilots with B737 type rating. The most important operational characteristics of the aircraft as normal, abnormal and emergency procedures, SOPs, flight profiles, systems, use of FMC, preparation of flight, takeoff, climb , cruise, descent, approaches, etc.
