First officer position
Whether we are the first site you have visited, or just one of the many, you will soon be confused with all the information, strange abbreviations and shiny photos.
Above all else always, always remember you are a paying customer.
We recommend you develop your own checklist and ask questions.
In order to be eligible to apply for a position as a first officer with a commercial airline you must hold a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) with Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) theory examinations. This is commonly referred to as a frozen Airline Transport Pilot Licence. This is the culmination of a number of different licences and ratings which are as follows:
This licence allows you to fly single-engine piston (SEP) aircraft under visual flight rules (VFR) in certain weather conditions known as visual meteorological conditions (VMC).
This is a minimum five-hour course that allows you to fly your SEP (single-engine) aircraft at night but still only in VMC.
13 theoretical exams covering advanced subjects, plus 100 KSA (knowledge skills attitude)
This licence allows you to fly an aircraft and be paid for doing so. In other words, you are becoming a professional pilot.
This allows you to fly an aircraft with more than one piston engine. The rating can be added to either the PPL or CPL but it is normally completed at the same time as the CPL.
This allows you to fly an SEP(single-engine) and/or MEP(multi-engine) aircraft (if you’ve completed the MEP rating) under instrument flight rules (IFR) in both VMC and instrument meteorological conditions (IMC). It is inclusive of PBN(performance based navigation), which means flying by utilizing onboard computers and satellites.
This teaches you how to stay out of trouble and how to recover in the unlikely scenario of getting into trouble.
Once you have completed all of these elements then you will be required to complete the following two additional elements before applying for or taking up a position as a first officer.
This teaches you the process and procedures that are required for operating a multi-pilot aircraft.
This further develops your MCC skills and teaches you how to operate larger commercial aircraft.
This is our option – Airline Pilot Standard course. It combines both of the above, but to a higher level.
