Commercial Airline Pilot Training Reoccuring Training Requirements
If you need to meet the reoccuring training requirements as a commercial airline pilot, come to Paragon Flight for an experience that is more affordable, faster, and more enjoyable than any you’ll find available elsewhere. The sunny skies and beautiful scenery of Southwest Florida are just a few of the highlights of our service.
Recurrent Training for Airline Pilots
For practically all occupations, continuing education is part of continued employment and certification. Airline pilots are no different; they must participate in recurrent training a few days each year. This training allows pilots to keep their skills and knowledge base sharp and ready for service.
Airline pilots typically participate in recurrent training at intervals of six, nine, or twelve months. The timing depends on the employer, the type of aircraft flown, and the location.
The curriculum for recurrent training is set by the FAA and airline training departments and generally includes a common set of standards as well as special items of emphasis. Consider the importance of seldom used skills. If you learn them once to get your license and then never have to consider them again, you’ll be ill-prepared for a real-life scenario where lives depend on your performance. Recurrent training is meant to ensure that pilots keep these critical skills at the ready.
This training also provides the opportunity to introduce and reinforce recently adopted policies, equipment, skills, and procedures. As the field of aviation develops, pilots need to stay current on all relevant features.
The Choice of Paragon Flight
Paragon Flight is a well-known and well-respected flight school with dual authorizations of Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Parts 61 and 141. As a Part 61 flight school, we personalize one-on-one training for non-traditional students, and as a Part 141 flight school, we offer full-time, highly structured flight training for traditional student-pilots.
The training takes place here in modern facilities that work for all schedules. The weather in this area is prime for flight training since student-pilots have opportunities for flight time all year long, 350 days of the year.
All of our students benefit from this environment – from airline pilots seeking recurrent training to participants in the fast-paced P3 Professional Pilot Program. The P3 Program allows pilot-hopefuls with no experience to become commercially licensed pilots with flight instructor credentials in fewer than 10 months.
The pilot-friendly conditions of Southwest Florida also mean that we have an ample supply of skilled pilot applicants, and we take full advantage of the pool, hiring only the best for our students. With a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds, our flight instructors can appeal to any particular student-pilot’s goals and learning style.
