During the JOC training, you will learn the basics of flying on jet aircraft. Nowadays, many airlines require that prospective pilots complete a Jet Orientation Course prior to applying. LFA’s JOC course has been designed to meet all these standards of every airline.
JOC course is an excellent method to prepare every pilot for airline selection assessments, as well as your first type rating. It familiarizes candidates with the performance of jet aircraft operations, with an emphasis on the differences between the planes from the segment of general aviation and those of bigger airline aircraft.
The training program was designed by LOT Polish Airlines pilots in cooperation with the type training instructors (TRI) and persons responsible for the Airline Crew Recruitment.
Training is conducted on the most advanced simulator in Poland, ALSIME ALX with its medium jet flight model based on the Airbus A319. During the training you will get familiar with the mechanics of a typical jet plane, its advanced systems (A/P, A/T, FMS, TCAS, weather radar) and procedures associated with their use. Training is conducted in pairs under the supervision of our experienced instructors, thus it also gives an additional opportunity to refresh multi-crew co-operation (MCC) skills based on procedures developed in accordance with the standards of LOT Polish Airlines.
