Pilot Specialty Courses

Simulator Orientation

Recent regulatory changes require airlines to assess a pilot’s flying skills prior to being hired. At some airlines, this means that a simulator evaluation is part of the interview process. BMA offers custom courses designed to familiarize pilots with the handling characteristics of aircraft in which you’ll be evaluated. BMA will help you to prepare for this once in a lifetime interview and can tailor the session to the company and profile you are targeting. Some ways to prepare are:

  • ETOPS
  • Cat II/Cat III Training
  • Airline Screening Preparation

An interview at a major air carrier may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Don’t miss your chance to get on the seniority list and start building seniority as soon as possible. Your date of hire will determine your quality of life for the rest of your career.

Make no mistake, airlines can tell if you have prepared for this opportunity. Major airlines have the luxury to pick and choose from among the most qualified pilot. You have one chance to convince them that you are the pilot they should hire. Don’t be fooled into thinking the airline can’t tell whether you’ve taken the opportunity seriously.

We can offer these simulator sessions at any of our locations. Call  800-864-1256 for pricing.

These courses do not satisfy any FAA regulation and do not result in any certificate action.

***If your interview is coming up in the next couple of weeks, we will send confirmation of your booking as soon as possible. If your interview and prep session are several weeks away, receiving confirmation from the simulator facility of your slot and assigning an instructor may take a few days due to the high volume of bookings. We understand that you could be preparing for the biggest interview of your career, so we will try our best to accommodate your preferred date and time for your simulator session.

When was the last time you interviewed for a flying job? How sure are you that your best ‘tell me a time when…’ story is going to translate well to an HR rep? For the Question/Answer portion of your interview, there are a number of companies that provide a practice interview.
