BECOME A PILOT
Line Training or line flying under supervision, is mandatory for all the pilots and must be followed with the line check. There is no specified amount of hours for line flying – it absolutely depends from the policy of the airline company how much hours you have to fly before your line check. Airlines who offer Line Training, mostly offer from 300 to 500 hours.
Line training program basically helps you increase the number flight hours, gain experience in the actual aircraft and get the better job later on.
Requirements to get line training are quite similar everywhere. There is a list of main requirements for line training program:
- At least 100 hours as pilot-in-command of airplanes;
- Type rating on a current aircraft;
- Valid ME, IR (multi-engine, instrument rating);
- Valid CPL or ATPL;
- Valid Class 1 Medical Certificate;
- MCC certificate of completion;
- English level 4 according to ICAO requirements;
Line Training is in itself necessary, despite the opinion that line training destroys the airline pilot industry (“Pay to fly”). More or less, it’s the first step to be a pilot. For sure, there was a time when airline pilot training was sponsored by the airline hiring a pilot. However, the situation has changed and only few airlines still apply this policy. So the main information about line training programs is relevant and needful.
