The pilot will reach a profound level of knowledge about operational aspects of line flight operation. He will be trained in applying the standard procedures during normal operation, using clear communication with all involved parties.

The briefing consists of the following main points: weather- and fuel-planning, route selection, considerations about en-route and destination airports.


  • Briefing: 30 minutes to 1 hour

Additional information

LOFT may be done before or after a test, a check or as entirely separate training module. If done as part of e.g. a Renewal or Type Rating Training Course, it will provide additional flight training and airport aerodrome familiarization time. For aerodromes requiring special training by the competent authority please check our offers for "special aerodrome familiarisations".
