COMMAND PREPARATION TRAINING

​​​An interactive ground course dedicated to Command Preparation Training (CPT). This course will equip you for the biggest step in your flying career – the Command upgrade. It is also suitable for pilots who have recently received their upgrade and are looking to build their confidence.

Learn and practice Failure Management Techniques, including how to correctly manage a multi-crew flight deck during system failures with a successful outcome - every time. The classroom course will also teach you proven techniques for managing the workload in stressful situations. A practical understanding of the Pilot Competencies skills feature throughout this course.  At the end of this CPT course you will have a personalised 'route map' charting what skills you need to improve and how to be better prepared.
