A220 courses: The right fit for your training requirements.

Type Rating

Type rating training offers the combination of practical training in the full-flight simulator, theoretical instruction, and Web-/computer-based training. The structure of the course is determined in close cooperation with Airbus.

Recurrent Training and Checking

The aim of recurrent training and checking is to retain the type rating (LPC) and/or fulfill the respective operator requirements (OPC). All technical and operational topics are individually tailored to meet the requirements of the competent authority and the operator's training manual.

Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC)

The MCC serves to optimize the teamwork and cooperation of cockpit crews. The emphasis is on teaching interpersonal skills. MCC courses can be booked as a “stand-alone” course or combined with the type rating course.
