Changes in career and job positions are often reasons that require the renewal of an expired type rating. To pass a proficiency check and to safely operate the relevant type again, knowledge and skills need to be refreshed. Experienced instructors and our proven and flexible training program ensure to gain the necessary proficiency efficiently. After the course the pilots will be able again to safely operate the aeroplane in all flight phases.
