Reply To: BA’s A380 Takes Centre Stage at Paris Air ShowBack to Forum
Anthony – A usual type rating will include actual time on the aircraft ( granted not much, usually 6 take off and landings ). However for certain types that are similar a reduced type rating is all you need, basically just coursework and simulator sessions.
im not rated on an airbus, but on the boeing if you are rated on the 757 you only need a conversion course for the 767 so the first time you ever sat in a 767 could be with passengers. Im assuming that the A380 rating is convertible from another airbus rating ( I would assume the A340, although strange, because BA does not have any 340’s )
