Type Rating Course

Course overview

The global nature of our customer base demonstrates the confidence airlines have in the training delivered. Our courses provide quality, flexibility, reliability, and value all with the goal of enhancing aviation safety.

The Type Rating Course aims to provide a qualified pilot with the required license and ratings needed to operate a specific aircraft platform. By working closely with partner airlines, L3Harris ensures that trainees receive tailored training based on the airlines operating procedures, helping to create a smooth transition to flight operations and minimize the need for additional training.

Course content

The ground training phase of the course gives trainees the necessary theoretical knowledge and confidence required to progress to the simulator training phases. This phase is delivered via classroom based lessons and supported with computer based training (CBT) which can be provided by either the airline or L3Harris.

The course employs blended delivery techniques to ensure that periods of CBT are broken at regular intervals by instructor input and VFD/FPT training, preventing long periods of learning without instructor direction. A Technical Instructor is available at any time to answer trainee questions and provide supplementary support as required.

Monitoring of course performance at examinations and during subsequent training phases ensure the trainee receives the support required to achieve the desired success for this demanding training.

The simulator phase of each course is delivered on L3Harris’ fleet of state-of-the-art RealitySeven full flight simulators.
