A320 TYPE RATING

The objective of the A320 Type Rating is to ensure that the aspiring pilot safely and adequately performs normal, abnormal and emergency operations and that he knows the limitations of the aircraft and its systems, as well as its performances. This A320 type rating course prepares the applicant to pass the level tests, exams and proficiency checks with the level required by the authority.

THEORETICAL STAGE

The duration of the theoretical phase of the A320 Type Rating is 18 days (108 hours), during which the instruction will include procedures and systems, the progress tests and the final exam. The theoretical instruction sessions will have a maximum duration of 6 hours, between 08:00 – 17:00.

The content of this phase focuses on in-depth knowledge of the airplane’s structure, engines, and systems and their associated limitations, including considerations of mass and center of gravity, performance, and flight planning.

In addition, the applicant will learn the location of the controls and indicators of the systems as well as their operation and use, will learn to identify potential failures of the systems, their effect on the operation of the aircraft and their interaction with other systems.

SIMULATOR STAGE

The simulator part of the A320 Type Rating will consist of nine 4-hour sessions, totalling, therefore, 36 hours of FFS simulator, and a 2-hour session in FBS simulator for Upset Recovery Training (UPRT). The exam (skill test) will be done in another 2-hour session per pilot.

The objectives of this phase of training consist of:

FLIGHT TRAINING

The objective of the flight training stage of the A320 Type Rating is to train take-off and landing maneuvers in various configurations in a real aircraft and a real environment, putting into practice the acquired skills.

During the flight training, for multi-pilot airplanes, a pilot with more than 500 hours in a plane of similar size and performances, must make at least 4 landings, one of them with a “full stop”.

In all other cases, the student pilot must make at least 6 landings. This phase of training is carried out on aircraft included in an Air Operator Certificate (AOC).

EXAMS

Theoretical exam of 1hr duration and skill test of the simulator phase of 2hrs. The flight phase does not carry a skill test.
