Course Description

This course is representative of the systems training a First Officer will receive as a new hire in today’s airline industry. This course will provide advanced jet systems training by systematically studying the type of aircraft systems commonly found on commercially operated jet aircraft. As a training platform, this course specially explores all the major aircraft systems found on the Bombardier CRJ-200. Students will be exposed to aircraft limitations and profiles, Immediate Action Items, checklist usage, and Flight Management Systems (FMS) navigation. The concepts of both Crew Resource Management (CRM) and Threat and Error Management (TEM) will be developed through all aspects of this course.

Rationale

This course provides a structured jet training program that qualifies our students for preferential hiring at specifically designated commercial airlines. In addition, this course was also developed to comply with the future training requirements mandated in the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010. Under this new legislation, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering granting flight hour credit for the completion of specific academic training courses that will prepare a pilot to function effectively in an air carrier operational environment and enhance overall safety. This course is designed to satisfy that requirement by providing advanced jet training.
