Pilot training

Multi-Crew Pilot License, India has Gurukul

The legacy process of pilot training in the early days started with gathering flying hours and experience mainly with general aviation or as an instructor in the flying school. With enough experience and an airline job, pilots were able to transit from flying smaller and slower aircraft to jet aircraft after some initial base training. The need to update and review current pilot training was actually formally first recognised as early as in 1982 and the first ICAO attempt to adapt to the changes in the airline industry was the installation of the Personnel Licensing and Training Panel (PELTP) from 1982-1986 (IATA, 2011).

Max Pilots training, contradictory HF philosophy

Multiple flight deck alerts during non-normal conditions. Training must include scenario-based training where a single malfunction results in multiple flight deck alerts that require timely pilot actions to include recognition and interpretation of the non-normal condition and prioritization of the required pilot actions. This training must be included in initial, upgrade, transition, and recurrent training.
