Airline Simulator Assessment Preparation

Choose the right course for your future

The Jet Orientation Course (JOC) enables a pilot holding a CPL (A) / ME IR (A) licence to a smooth transition from small piston engine aircraft to a Jet Engine airliner of modern days.

The aim of this course is to develop entry-level knowledge, handling skills and spatial awareness within the Jet environment, introducing also the pilot to the typical daily operations of an airliner.

Several airlines require the applicant to have taken a Jet Orientation Course (JOC) before applying for a pilot position, since it provides a solid foundation for a successful assessment and subsequent Type Rating Course.
