¿WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS
OF TAKING THE A320 TYPE RATING COURSE?

Type Rating certification is an essential requirement for those looking to pursue a career as an airline pilot. Investing in the A320-specific Type Rating certification offers numerous key advantages

Advantages offered by
Type Rating A320

Access to a Diverse Fleet of Aircraft
One of the most notable advantages is that A320 Type Rating certification allows pilots to fly not only the A320 itself but also other Airbus family members, such as the A319 and A321. This is due to the similarities in the cockpits and operational procedures of these aircraft. As a result, pilots certified on the A320 have access to a broader range of job opportunities and flight assignments.

Workplace Flexibility
A320 Type Rating certification opens up the possibility of obtaining a Cross Crew Qualification, meaning pilots can make smoother transitions to other Airbus wide-body aircraft equipped with fly-by-wire technology. This further expands their job opportunities and allows them to adapt to different airline roles and requirements.

Continued Demand
The A320 is one of the most popular and widely used aircraft in the commercial aviation industry. Its demand remains strong, meaning pilots with A320 Type Rating certification have good employment prospects and job security.

Career Potential
Since many airlines operate fleets of A320 aircraft, pilots certified on this type of aircraft have the opportunity to advance in their careers and access higher-responsibility roles, such as captains and flight trainers.
