BESTPILOT just got better. Airline Jet Transition; an industry leading development in MCC JOC training.
Airline Jet Transition (AJT) has been developed in a partnership between Kura Aviation Ltd C.I.C., Virtual Aviation and a leading European airline; and is exclusive to Kura’s BESTPILOT programme.
Airline Jet Transition takes MCC/JOC to a whole new level. Designed to ease the transition to flying jet aircraft in a multi-crew environment, AJT (with MCC completion certificate) is a robust 40-hour, continually assessed, simulator training programme designed to develop the skills and knowledge of the trainee pilot to the highest possible professional standard. Uniquely the course also includes up to 20 hours of pilot observation providing the trainee pilot additional opportunity to consolidate new skills learned as they progress through training. Culminating in an LOE, AJT provides the employing airline with a new First Officer who is extremely well prepared to succeed in type rating.
Airline Jet Transition supports Kura’s Performance Guarantee at Type Rating offered to our airline partners when they recruit BESTPILOTs.
“We are thrilled to be Kura’s training partner, as they are an organisation who genuinely care about the success and wellbeing of each and every student as an individual – and these are values which are really important to us. Working together to develop the AJT has been a stimulating process, as we’ve strived to create an industry-leading course. So it’s rewarding that half of the students from the first AJT course have secured airline jobs already”.
— James Stevenson, CEO of Virtual Aviation
Kura’s Managing Director, Isobel Hall commented, “We are absolutely delighted to partner with Virtual Aviation, Cambridge, in delivering our new Airline Jet Transition course. Virtual Aviation has an excellent reputation for delivering high quality training which is critical to the standards we aim to achieve through BESTPILOT which incorporates MCC/JOC and professional development training. Importantly both companies share the same vision in terms of training ethos and standards where outstanding training, great customer experience and continued support is at the heart of the business. The nature of the partnership between Kura and Virtual Aviation has the added benefit that all BESTPILOTs have access to discounted sim refresher training if they need it”.
