Training on a simulator


Simulators are widely used in both military and civil aviation today. The capabilities of the equipment go beyond the training of air traffic controllers. These devices can be used for the aeronautical training of operating flight engineers, for the testing and trial operation of modified or newly designed on-board systems.

Several categories of equipment supporting state-of-the-art training are known, the diversity of the categories being shown by the fact that there are equipment that only serves to familiarize the user with the interior design of the cabin and is able to start an ‘aircraft’, and that there are multi-pilot aircraft support their activities.

The Multi-Crew Cooperation MCC(A) course description:

The Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC) course has been designed to train single seat pilots with the team skills necessary for the safe operation of complex, multi-crew jet aircraft. During the course, you will be introduced to the competencies necessary for this demanding transition. The training will take place throughout all phases of flight under normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.


The MCC(A) course entry requirements are as follows:

  • hold a valid Commercial Pilot’s License with a Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (MEIR)
  • if you are awaiting your license, you must provide a Skills Test pass certificate.

A320 Type Rating course (A320 TR)

The A320 type rating training consists of theoretical and practical courses and a proficiency test (the training does not include Landing Training).


The requirements for applying for A320 TR training are as follows:

  • at least 70 hours of flight time in a PIC role
  • valid CPL / IR license with ME / IR (valid for at least 3 months from the start of the course)
  • Existence of a valid diploma for passing the ATPL (A) theoretical knowledge examination in accordance with Part-FCL
  • Existence of a diploma of completion of MCC training
  • a valid diploma of at least ICAO LEVEL 4 language proficiency
  • Class 1 medical certificate issued by an EASA MS

    Description of A320 type rating instructor training (A320 TRI / SFI):

    The TRI-SFI course (Type Rating Instructor / Synthetic Flight Instructor) consists of training pilots to acquire all the knowledge necessary to be proficient in theoretical and flight instruction in multi-pilot airplanes, according to Part-FCL. This course can only be performed if applicant has valid type-rating

    The TRI course entry requirements are as follows:

    • hold or have held a CPL or ATPL license in the type you wish to be an instructor
    • 1.500h of flight as pilot in multi-pilot airplanes.
    • 30 route sectors within 12 months prior to the date of application, including take-offs and landings, such as PIC or co-pilot, on the applicable airplane type, of which 15 may have be in FFS representing the same type.

    The SFI course entry requirements are as follows:

    • hold or have held a CPL, MPL or ATPL in the appropriate aircraft category
    • have completed the proficiency check for the issue of the specific aircraft type rating in an FFS representing the applicable type, within the 12 months preceding the application
