An extensive range of training courses.

All of our training courses are based on national and international regulations. In fact, certain courses even exceed the requirements of the EU Aircrew Regulation Part-FCL and EU-OPS.

The Multi-Crew Cooperations course is designed for pilot crews without any experience in a two-person cockpit. The training course focuses on developing the non-technical skills required to work in a multi-crew environment. 

Type Rating

By participating in one of our Type Rating courses, your crews will earn the type rating needed to fly one of your commercial aircraft. The courses are carried out in accordance with the EASA Part FCL guidelines and expanded to include elements that are tailored to your airline’s actual operations.

Bridge Course

Participating in a bridge course is the best way for inexperienced trainees to prepare for a type rating course.

Cross-Crew Qualification (CCQ)

The Cross-Crew Qualification course is a shortened type rating for Airbus pilot crews who already hold a type rating for an A320, A330, A340, or A380 aircraft type and want to switch to a different type.

Differences Training

This course is designed for pilot crews that already hold a type rating aircraft type and now want to switch to another variation within the type.

Familiarization Training

Familiarization Training is designed for pilot crews that hold a valid type rating but do not have any experience flying a certain variation of the aircraft type. 

Recurrent Training & Checking (OPC/LPC)

Extended Twin Egine Operations (ETOPS)

During the ETOPS course, participants are taught an understanding of flight operations on long-haul routes and the associated additional rules relating to flight planning and in-flight decision-making.

Required Navigation Performance/Area Navigation (RNP RNAV)

Divided into a theoretical and a practical section, this course teaches participants about the specific RNAV areas and requirements.

Head-up Guidance System Training (HUD/HGS)

This training course teaches participants how to operate HUD/HGS on a variety of aircraft types.

Zero Flight Time Landing Training (ZFTT)

This training course focuses exclusively on landing training and is carried out after a type rating or CCQ in a full flight simulator.
