SIMULATOR TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION ELIGIBILITY
To be eligible for simulator only training and certification you need a minimum of practical experience. For the Boeing B-737 NG program you must meet one of the following:
Hold a type rating (no PIC limitation) in a multi-engine turbojet airplane; or
Have logged 500 hours on B-737; or
Have 1000 hours of flight time in two different multi-engine turbojet airplanes; or
Have logged 2000 hours total of which 500 hours are multi-engine turbine time; or
Have been appointed by the U.S. Armed Forces as PIC in a multi-engine turbojet.
If you do not meet one of these requirements you may still perform all of the training and testing on a simulator however, you will receive a limitation on your license stating the following:
“The AMEL B-737 is subject to additional PIC limitations”
The limitation may be removed by accomplishing 25 hours of operating experience as PIC on the same type under the supervision of a qualified and current Boeing B-737. This limitation should pose no problem if you are being employed as a First Officer at an airline. See FAR 61.63 and/or FAR 61.64 (2) regulation for more information on how to qualify for entry into the Boeing B-737 simulator only program. You must meet at least one of the 5 different rules to qualify for entry or the limitation of 25 hours will apply.
ATP CONCURRENT WITH THE TYPE RATING
Students may perform the Air Transport Pilot Test concurrent with the type rating provided you qualify at the FAA ATP level and are in possession of the ATP theoretical exam results. This would be performed at NO additional charge. Please contact K&S for details of the Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program (ATP CTP).

WHAT STUDENTS SAY: MARK L.
"Greetings from just East of East St. Louis. Your support and services continue to be superb. Many thanks for the hiring notification from SWA. The timing just happened to work out perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed my B737 sim training with your company. Your program was some of the best flight training I've experienced. From my best guestimate, between the instruction provided by Skip Vreeburg, Eric Bate & Ken Barnett, I had access to approximately 75 years of combined flight experience.That kind of teacher/student exposure is phenomenal. I've been a student in numerous flight training programs but the one thing I really enjoyed about Skip, Eric & Ken was their celebration of flying. If penguins spent more time with these guys, those birds would no longer be flightless! K&S came highly recommended to me and I will continue to pass along the good word. Thanks again for a fantastic training experience. Have a delightful weekend! Cheers."

Boeing B-737 NG DifferencesContact for E-brochure Objective: To provide a flight crew member with the differences from the Boeing B-737 Classic to the Boeing B-737 NG with respect to system components and operational aspects.
Boeing B-737 SIC Qualification and SIC Type RatingThe Boeing B-737 SIC Type Rating follows the same training footprint as the initial Boeing B-737 curriculum F, without the checkride. Furthermore, in order to receive an SIC rating on an FAA license, a candidate must perform one take-off and landing on the actual aircraft. For this reason, no SIC type rating will be issued until such a letter from a training captain is received and presented to an examiner at a FSDO or a TCE at K&S. K&S’s suggestion: as the one take-off and landing may not necessarily be easily accessible, we suggest to go for the PIC rating (with PIC limitation – for some) as this would indicate to a flight dept. that you passed the training successfully for the specific type rating.
