BAA Training launches a new Boeing 737 MAX Type Rating program, fully authorized by the Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA). The program delivered in BAA Training Spain’s training facilities encompasses theoretical knowledge instruction and training in the brand new full flight simulator (FFS) Boeing 737 MAX that is expected to be ready for training (RFT) in October 2021.

Arunas Miezanskas, Head of Training at BAA Training, says: “Our professional team has prepared a new quality Boeing 737 MAX Type Rating program for licenced pilots who want to fly the 737 MAX type professionally and safe. The program has been written in line with the stiff EASA requirements and covers all the crucial elements, including but not limited to Boeing 737 MAX FCC and MCAS, multiple flight deck alerts during non-normal conditions, stabilizer trim, etc. We expect training pilots for a number of airlines in Europe and others with Boeing 737MAX in their fleet. “

The Boeing 737 MAX Type Rating will be offered to corporate and individual clients looking to gain competence in flying the Boeing 737 MAX. The aircraft is currently allowed to fly in the US, Europe and other countries except for China which is also getting closer to ending the grounding.

Boeing 737 MAX Type Rating program overview

The theoretical part consists of 110 training hours, and the flight training in a simulator takes 40 training hours to complete.

The theory hours further break down into 90 hours of ground school training and 20 hours of Cockpit Procedures Training (CPT). The 40 training hours devoted to flight training represent 9 FFS sessions of 36 hours (4 hours each) and a skill test of 4 hours.

Next target - Boeing 737NG to Boeing 737 MAX Differences Training

The Boeing 737NG to Boeing 737 MAX Differences Training will highlight critical differences between the types, creating a smooth and convenient route to flying the Boeing 737 MAX for pilots already type-rated on Boeing 737NG. The program will include computer-based and simulator training while fully complying with EASA’s standards and Boeing’s recommendations.

In addition, BAA Training Spain also expects one more FFS - Airbus A320ceo/neo, Boeing 737MAX - and two other FTD Level 2 devices: Airbus A320 by the end of 2021 and Boeing 737MAX in Q1 2022. The FTDs have been ordered the same type as FFSs so customers could use them in combination to optimize the training costs when needed.
