Bridge course

Bridge course

Embraer 135/145/Legacy
Embraer 170/190/Lineage

Modern high performance jet aircrafts equipped with glass cockpits offer a wealth of information to the pilot. To make best use of this equipment and information, the pilot requires a thorough understanding of system interfaces and indications. This course helps pilots that have not yet flown a modern jet aircraft to get acquainted with the installed technology. With the gained knowledge during the course, the pilot is well prepared for the start of a type rating training course.

The bridge course is not required by EASA FCL but is excellent preparation for future airline pilots for the type rating course.
