I flew the a321 on here for four months and finally I felt confident with it all the way threw (mostly).
Now I am learning the 789 and I feel like a noob again, .no confidence in the flight physics.
I know that pilots need to be certified or “rated” for each aircraft, how does this look…how long does it take to go from an airbus to a Boeing and mabye back? Do pilots feel confident in flying any aircraft, or just their aircraft?
(P.s topic mods, I have no idea what category this needs to be in)
I changed and edited your topic:
It depends, initial training can take anywhere from a week to several weeks. It includes Gound school, then sim and the flight time
For each aircraft? thank you for topic correction
Yes. I know for us for the 1900 it takes about a week with a check ride, and I would believe bigger companies would do the same
It takes me like EDIT 3 months, am I slow? 😐,
Well youre not being educated in all the procedures, so comparing yourself isnt a good idea haha
To fly an E3D, that takes months in simulators and the like before they get anywhere near the real thing.
So in my Flying Club we have very different types of gliders (I know not an Airbus or a Boeing, but still planes), and for us it takes about 20 t/o‘s until the pilot is comfortable with the handling of the plane, so it doesn’t take too long.
The initial type rating lasts about 8 weeks. Before that you complete your training with MCC and a Jet orientation course.
I don’t know how it is to switch back from airbus to Boeing or the other way, but I think it’s not comfortable.
I’m 737 rated and i would feel highly uncomfortable to fly any other jet.
