  • 1 Full Flight Simulator AOC (Assessment of competence) test

Duration

approx. 6 days

Aim of the course

  • The objective of the MPL(A) Instructors Training course is to train applicants to deliver training in accordance with the features of a competency based approach to training and assessment to instruct candidates on MPL courses

Entry Requirements

  • Hold a valid TRI/SFI/STI/FI/MCCI Rating or Authorization.

Course outline

  • An applicant shall receive and practice theory related to the duties of an MPL-I on the applicable type of aircraft. The applicant will become familiar with TEM and CBT briefing and training techniques, use of video, etc.

Duration

3 days

Credits for previous experience

  • The standard training program may be adjusted according to an MPL-I applicant’s previous experience

Aim of the course

  • To be able to use standard radiotelephony phraseology while onboard aircrafts.

Entry Requirements

  • The radiotelephony course is meant for both pilots and student pilots.

The language proficiency assessment is designed to reflect a range of tasks undertaken by pilots but with specific focus on language, rather than operational procedures.

The assessment should determine the applicant’s ability to:

  • Communicate effectively using standard R/T phraseology;
  • Deliver and understand messages in plain language in both usual and unusual situations that necessitate departure from standard R/T phraseology.

There are two methods of determining the level of English language proficiency of a candidate:

  • Basic assessment: for candidates without a pilot license (ab initio trainees).
  • Normal assessment: for candidates applying for an instrument rating, or for the revalidation or renewal of an LPE level 4 or 5, i.e. candidates with operational exposure or R/T experience.

Duration

  • 1 day

Aim of the course

  • The aim of the Type Rating B737NG course, which has also been approved with the option to conduct ZFTT, is to gain a thorough understanding of the operation, the function and, if appropriate, the abnormal and emergency operation of all aircraft systems. The type rating course shall also include those systems essential to the operation of the aircraft in the event that the crew has little or no control of their normal or abnormal operation.
