A type rating for the Airbus A320, A330 or A340 can be obtained in approximately 6-8 weeks. The actual duration of the course will depend on simulator availability and whether any supplementary sessions such as Low Visibility certifications, RNAV or Zero Flight Time training are required. All our courses are taught by current, experienced Airbus pilots who take great pride and pleasure in sharing the knowledge they have gained throughout the years working for major airlines around the world.
Courses are generally run in a standard two crew configuration, but can also consist of two Captains or two First Officers with adapted exercises.
An existing Airbus rating may be converted to any other Airbus rating through an abridged Cross-Crew Qualification. The CCQ highlights differences between aircraft types
As these courses rely heavily on knowledge and experienced operating Airbus aircraft they are only recommended for pilots with sound operational and technical knowledge who are current on the A320 or A330/340 series as applicable.
