Flight Operations Training

Flight Training courses

Our expertise and experience on Airbus aircraft and highly qualified/knowledgeable instructors are our best strengths, leveraging the Airbus Flight Training reference to train for safe and efficient operations

Our training course portfolio covers the entire flight training curriculum and pilots' training career path, from ab initio flight training, Captain upgrade, Recurrent Training & Checking including EBT and Instructor & Examiner courses.

Flight Training courses

Thanks to our modular training courses we can adapt to your training requirements and operational needs.

Our ab initio, intermediate (JOC/MCC), Type Rating, RTC and Instructor courses fully incorporate the Competency-Based Training & Assessment (CBTA) training philosophy. CBTA has been developed to optimise pilot skills and develop non-technical competencies. Pilots are therefore trained and assessed based on their capability to deal with situations.

Furthermore, Airbus has fully integrated the Evidence-Based Training philosophy (EBT) into Recurrent Training and Checking (RTC) and has the flexibility to provide both a 'traditional' and an EBT RTC program to tailor our training to your pilots' experience.

Our courses are all fully compliant with EASA requirements. Other approvals are also valid depending on the training location. They are available in all our Airbus Training Centres and some can be deployed at your facilities if you possess the required equipment.

Type Rating

Our Type Rating courses are composed of several modules that can be combined according to your operational and pilots' needs and are fully CBTA integrated and compliant.

Our Type Ratings can be combined with Base Training or  Zero Flight Time Training (which can include FFS Handling Session) courses and Line Flying Under Supervision (LIFUS) (also referred to as Initial Operating Experience (IOE)).

Intermediate phase modules and the HUD course can be fully integrated into the a Type Rating, leading to an overall reduction in the full course duration. 

To support your Airbus pilots to obtain another Airbus aircraft rating, we propose our Cross-Crew Qualification or Difference courses. Your pilot will benefit from a high quality standard training on a shorter and adapted rating course.

Intermediate Modules
