We offer a unique, highly recognised people-centred programme to train-the-trainer, available for future or experienced pilot instructors to acquire the competencies to conduct flight crew training within the airline, but also extend and refresh their knowledge.

The courses are composed of different modules allowing qualification as a simulator instructor (Synthetic Flight Instructor - SFI or restricted TRI) to in-flight aircraft training (full Type-Rating Instructor - TRI).

Courses are adapted based on the applicants’ experience (Initial, Extension or Cross Instructor Qualification courses).

We also offer Refresher courses for current instructors.

Our courses are all fully compliant with EASA requirements. Other approvals are also valid according to the training location.

Basic Instructor Training

The Type Rating Instructor course is composed of different modules, allowing you to adapt the training course according to the scope of your instructor activity.

The core module focuses on teaching and learning techniques, and is then complemented by the Type Specific FSTD module. 

The Type Specific Aeroplane modules (Full Flight Simulator FIF* & Flight FIF*) can then be followed, if required, in order to qualify as a restricted TRI (on FSTD) or fully qualified TRI.

The ground phase (core module) related to the teaching and learning process can be held at airlines’ base.
