A320 Type Rating Course
The aim of the course is to train pilots with different background and previous experiences to safely operate A320 family aircraft. After successful completion of the A320 type rating course and skill test pilots will be A320 family aircraft type rated. The course is performed on a basic variant aircraft, the A320, which covers the A320 family (A318/A319/A320/A321).
The course has been designed to provide all necessary training for the issue of an A320 type rating.
Same Type Rating permits the carry-over of total credit for crew qualifying from one variant of aircraft type to another, based on common cockpit and flight characteristics.
It allows pilots to get a single type rating to fly all the variants of a same aircraft family, provided they performed the relevant Familiarisation Course.
