Why is it so important to maintain your flying proficiency?

 


As humans, if we don’t regularly practice procedures, we forget them. Proficiency isn't long-lasting.

Airlines - and the authorities - understand this. 

Even the most experienced airline pilots, who are flying almost daily, are still required to pass proficiency checks every six months. 

So, for pilots who are still very low on hours, keeping your skills current is crucial.

Many recently-graduated pilots forget the importance of regular simulator refreshers after completing their MCC. They tend to focus only on sending out CVs.
 

What is needed to stay proficient?

Airlines will often ask applicants how many jet simulator hours and how many flying hours they have in the past 6 or 12 months. And these numbers will often influence whether your application will be processed or not.

We recommend at least a 2hr Simulator Refresher every 2-3 months.
 

How can we assist you?

We offer Simulator Refresher sessions which are tailored to your needs. You can choose to focus on particular areas, or fly a complete sector.

The session will start with a one-hour pre-flight briefing, followed by one to four hours in the simulator, and will end with a half-hour de-briefing.

Simulator Refresher sessions take place on our own CAA-certified B737-800 fixed-base simulator at Cambridge Airport, near London Stansted.

We also offer Simulator Refresher sessions on Airbus, Boeing and Embraer full flight simulators at London Gatwick and Manchester.
