Type Rating Training – V1 Cut Discussion

At the instructor panel we have various displays to track student progress. One of the ones I like to use is the one in the video above. I can see LOC and GS tracking, I especially love to see this during your single engine ILS approach. It becomes very easy to identify if you’re maintaining runway heading within 10 degrees. In the video above you will see a student that I was called in to “fix” the first thing I did was have him complete a single engine ILS and assess his flying using both this display as well as watching him fly the procedure from the instructors seat.

I quickly identified his issue, fixed it and HE PASSED YESTERDAY! Just like I did for him, i know i can help you anyway possible as well. Juan and I hope you give us the opportunity to do so, and look forward to you joining our mission to revolutionize aviation training. We truly want to elevate the instruction quality around the world. Will you join us?

B737 Type Rating – When I knew I’d dedicate my life to instruction

My first type rating experience was overwhelming to say the least. I felt like i was scavenging for data anywhere i could get it, and was left largely to figure things out on my own. After taking a relatively complex concept (that was not explained well by any manual, CBT, app, or instructor) and simplifying it in my own mind..i was able to explain it in a way that my classmates had never heard. I knew there, i think I just might make a career out of instruction. Needless to say – I have and you don’t have to feel like i did when i went through training. My entire life dedicated to this, and furthermore dedicated to a mission to elevate training quality for the aviation industry on the entire planet earth! Juan and I are doing it. we hope you join us on this adventure because we would love to have you on our team!

EFB’s in the cockpit!


EFB’S make for awesome tools! But in an emergency, they can become your worst nightmare!

One thing you do NOT want to do is get used to bookmarking things and not being capable of finding non-normal checklists quickly in your EFB.

This is why I say PRACTICE finding non-normal procedures regularly, and additionally do NOT get used to bookmarking everything and relying solely on bookmarks to find pertinent data!

If you agree send us an email, we want to hear all about your EFB stories!


My Experience Getting B737 Typed

Wow Where To Start…
My first time training in a Level D sim was in B737NG school. I actually won the type rating out of a raffle out at a job fair. (I talk all about it in the video below if you missed it!)
I remember showing up to class completely unaware of what to expect. I figured “ok show up with some systems knowledge, have a working knowledge on limitations” but truthfully i didn’t know exactly what i was about to embark on.
Half way through day 1 i quickly realized there was ALOT to know. ..AND i only had 12 days before my FAA Oral. Shortly after i would be in a sim for 7 sessions and off to a check ride. Training brought all kinds of surprises, starting with different instructors, automation management (I had been flying a Metroliner with ZERO automation), not to mention flight director tracking was interesting for me at first!
The experience truly showed me that type rating courses require more prep work then what i had actually done, and additionally the “Fire hose” analogy is 100% true.
Looking back now there are many times where i could say “Had i known that then, I would’ve done ____”
I’ve now logged over 4,800 hours teaching in level D sims not to mention all of the classroom time instructing every training program imaginable for so many airlines I cant keep track.
The #1 rule i have found is: DO NOT RELY ON THE TRAINING PROGRAM. Put in your time and effort to prepare, a small investment in our products will save you A TON of frustration. Starting with the playbook bundle. This is essentially a briefing for your entire training program. Much like you brief before a flight, or before a sim, the playbook is your briefing guide before beginning any training program. All of those “had i known” moments are covered there!

Next look into our online video courses, you will 100% have success in training with those courses. The content there comes after years teaching pilots with varying experience levels. Plus we offer a 100% money back guarantee on your success – so what do you have to lose?
