JET ORIENTATION COURSE

JET ORIENTATION COURSE 

 

Course Overview

The Jet Orientation Course consists of a ground training segment and, except for Curriculum S-18, a FSTD segment. This particular curriculum is intended to bridge the gap in knowledge between a pilot graduating from a light aircraft training environment and the knowledge a pilot should have prior to entering an air carrier environment. It is designed to be an aspiring airline transport pilot’s first exposure to large turbine-powered aircraft and how those aircraft perform in the national airspace system (NAS), at high subsonic speeds, at high altitude, and in adverse weather phenomena. The curriculum will also address crew management and leadership skills as well as the required professional attitudes and attributes required of candidates destined for airline operations. 

Course Objective

The objective of this course is to bridge the knowledge gap discussed in the course overview by exposing and preparing the applicant to operate safely in those operations which require an ATP AMEL certificate by rule.

Course Completion Standard

Successful completion of the Jet Orientation Course will ensure an ATP AMEL applicant receives the baseline knowledge and experience to prepare them for the duties, responsibilities, and challenges of an air carrier environment. A training center specific and personalized graduation certificate will be distributed to the student after successful completion of all the Jet Orientation Course requirements.

  • What steps do I need to take if I have a Foreign License?
    Thank you for your interest in K & S Aviation. If you currently have no FAA license, you will need to: 1) go through the FAA Foreign License Verification process: https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/foreign_license_verification/ 2) go through the ATP-CTP course 3) take the ATP written test (at any FAA approved testing center) 4) Once you have the above, you can do the type rating course with ATP practical (must be done in conjunction per FAA regulations). *TSA clearance will be required for each course separately for Non-U.S citizens* Canadian License Holders For our Canadian license holders, some extra information: There is an agreement between the FAA and Transport Canada which allows a quick conversion of an ATP Certificate from one country to another. The details are in FAA Circular AC: 61-135A (Can Google it). What is needed is a written “differences" exam, the ATP CTP course, and an FAA medical + the required paperwork. There is NO practical exam required. The FAA will transfer any type ratings and instrument rating from the Canadian ATPL to the FAA certificate.

  • Boeing B-737 NG Differences

  • Boeing B-737 SIC Qualification and SIC Type Rating
    The 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.
