Frequently Asked Questions

How long does pilot base training typically take?

Generally, base training is usually completed within one day, during which pilots will complete a certain number of takeoffs and landings at the controls of the actual aircraft under the supervision of a type rating instructor pilot.

Are there any specific requirements or qualifications that a pilot needs to meet to undergo base training?

Base training, if mandated by the licensing authority, is required upon completion of the type rating course in order to demonstrate proficiency handling the aircraft during critical phases of flight (i.e. take off and landing). The requirements can vary depending on your licensing authority, however they are generally the same as to obtain a type rating. Base training can only commence once the candidate has successfully passed his/her license skill test at the completion of the type rating course.
