737 Typed! A GA Pilot Goes for a Boeing 737 Type Rating

737 Typed! A GA Pilot Goes for a Boeing 737 Type Rating

Quote:
How difficult would it be for a GA pilot with no turbine experience and precious little multiengine time to earn a Boeing 737 type rating? How long would it take? What would it cost? Is it even possible? Well, AVweb's Wayne Phillips recently did exactly that, and now has the heavy-iron type rating to show for it! Wayne explains why, where, how long, how much, what was involved, what aspects he found toughest, and which were the most exciting.

I know that first officer training is about 6 weeks long here at AirTran but you are not type rated. You get type rated when you upgrade to Captain. Capt. upgrade is also 6 weeks long with another 100 hrs of flying with a check airmen on revenue flights. These are company check airmen not FAA check airmen. The FAA comes in to play on one of your last flights and rides jumpseat to give you your final capt. sign off.
