A 600 grams tablet PC replaces about five kilos of paper within pilot training at Cockpit4u.

From April 2013 Cockpit4u will introduce the "Electronic Cockpit4u Bag" (ECB) for all type rating courses on Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier.

ECB is an electronic information management device that helps trainees to perform flight training tasks more easily and efficiently with less paper. It is a general purpose computing platform intended to reduce, or even replace, paper-based reference material often found in the trainee pilot's carry-on flight bag, including the training syllabus, aircraft operating manual, flight-crew operating manual, and navigational charts.

Each type rating trainee of the German TRTO will be provided with an Android device which digitally presents the entire training documents, except the QRH, the Training Manual and the grading record. This is to improve the training even more convenient, efficient and sustainable.

The customer will be able to gain the necessary routine in a paperless cockpit, which has already been established within the most leading airlines worldwide. Continuous innovations like this constantly confirms Cockpit4u as one of the most progressive and customer-oriented aviation training providers in the world.

Renewal of CLASS AND TYPE RATINGS: Refresher Training

Paragraph (b)(1) of FCL.740 determines that if a class or type rating has lapsed, the applicant shall take refresher training at an ATO. The objective of the training is to reach the level of proficiency necessary to safely operate the relevant type or class of aircraft. The amount of refresher training needed should be determined on a case-by-case basis by the ATO.

Once the ATO has determined the needs of the applicant, it should develop an individual training programme that should be based on the initial training for the issue of the rating and focus on the aspects where the applicant has shown the greatest needs.

After successful completion of the training, the ATO should give a certificate, or other documental evidence that the training has been successfully achieved to the applicant, to be submitted to the competent authority when applying for the renewal.
