We have one goal in mind: deliver a flight-line ready pilot to the airlines. This is done without compromising quality, cutting corners, or simply checking boxes. The Aerosim A320 Type Rating program was designed by a skilled team of airline training experts. Our course encompasses all aspects of Multi Crew Coordination (MCC) and Jet Orientation Training (JOT) and culminates in students becoming fully proficient, PIC type-rated pilots on an A320 aircraft.
Our unique combination of innovative and interactive courseware, flight training device technology, and instruction of the highest caliber makes us uniquely qualified to conduct flight training in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.

*Administered upon arrival prior to start of 'on-site' training.
For knowledge preparation in advance of on-site training, each student receives a USB drive containing Aerosim-developed Aircraft Systems and General Operational Subjects courseware (PC-based). Aerosim's unique courseware provides relevant and structured learning material with self-paced instruction, demonstrations, self-assessment, practice scenarios, and remediation. Course progress is recorded through Aerosim's Learning Management System (LMS).
Built using Aerosim's high-fidelity simulation, the graphically rich and engaging course content matches the configuration of the Virtual Flight Deck, Virtual Procedure Trainer, and Full Flight Simulator - delivering a common platform for better preparation and training.
In addition to the courseware, the USB drive contains Aerosim's unique Virtual Flight Deck (VFD) technology (PC-based). The VFD is a high-fidelity simulation of the aircraft systems with a fully interactive flight deck. This tool provides real-time interaction with every system in a free-play training environment.
Master systems by observing synoptic pages and active system schematics. Practice phase-of-flight procedures as well as non-normal and emergency scenarios.
The Aerosim Virtual Procedure Trainer (VPT) is used for instructor-led Systems and Procedures Integration Training and Procedures-based Flight Instruction. The Aerosim VPT provides students with a graphical representation of the flight deck including simulation of aircraft systems. The device is used as a ground and flight procedures trainer under normal and non-normal conditions.
Training with the Virtual Procedure Trainer is effective when used for familiarization, systems, and procedures training prior to full flight simulator sessions. The extensive use of instructor-led time in the VPT is one of the major elements that contributes to the success of each student.
The flight training portion of the curriculum includes Advanced Maneuvers Training and Line-Oriented Flight Training (LOFT) accomplished in the Full Flight Simulator.
The Airbus A320 Level D Full Flight Simulator is located at the JetBlue training facility (JetBlue University), adjacent to the Orlando International Airport (Florida).
"I was very impressed by the course and the high standard of training I received at Aerosim. Your instructors were not only friendly and extremely professional, but they were also very experienced and know how to get the best result out of each candidate. I am so glad I made the trip over to Orlando to work with you.
You played a very big part in helping me along the way Julie, so thank you for all your support and information you provided; not to mention your friendly and helpful attitude. I had absolutely no idea what I was in for when I started enquiring and now a couple of months later I am A320 endorsed.
I wish you all the best for the future and will recommend Aerosim to anyone I speak to."

"Having successfully completed Aerosim's A320 type rating course in January 2014, I recommend Aerosim most highly to anyone considering getting qualified. Aerosim's well-crafted course, advanced home study software, and state of the art procedures trainer prepare the candidate brilliantly for the very demanding full-motion Level D simulator detail where the course culminates. Aerosim's pleasant and knowledgeable instructors are the best in the business, draw their proficiency from decades of experience, and teach in a manner that is most effective in helping the candidate to achieve a successful first-time pass, on time and on budget. I can think of no training provider I'd trust more with my career than Aerosim."

"I must say that it was a very good experience we have had with your organisation and should we require any further A320 type ratings, we would not hesitate in utilizing your company. Thank you to all of your staff for their professionalism."

"The quality of instructors that you have assembled is truly remarkable. Nancy, David, Matt, Vinod, Rich, and Scott went above and beyond in each of the training events we attended. It takes a great amount of patience, dedication, and perseverance to take a '250 hour guy' like me, and see me through to the end.
This truly was a terrific experience, and I can only hope I have the good fortune to work with you all again."
