Before you step foot into the cockpit, you will receive approximately 48 hours of ground training at our modern training facility in Tampa. The RTC Pilot King Air 350 Training includes classroom-based instruction on the various systems of the aircraft as well as flight simulator training in our state-of-the-art Level D simulators. Ground training is an integral part of the King Air 350 Type Rating and is necessary for your success in the air. By the end of this training, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how aircraft systems work together and how to operate them effectively.
Once you have completed your ground training, you will receive a nine-hour briefing from one of our experienced RTC Pilot instructors. The briefing will cover everything from take-off to landing and will give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the aircraft or the training program. This part of the King Air 350 Initial Training is very important as it ensures that you are well-prepared for your time in the cockpit. It is our goal to make sure that you feel confident and comfortable during your King Air 350 Type Rating.
Fight Training as Pilot-In-Command (PIC)
After your briefing, you will receive approximately 12 hours of flight training as the Pilot-In-Command (PIC). This is a crucial part of the King Air 350 Initial Training Program as it allows you to get hands-on experience flying the aircraft. You will be able to put into practice what you have learned during your ground training and briefing. Once you’ve completed your flight training as PIC, you will have a thorough understanding of how to operate the aircraft and be well-prepared for your King Air 350 Type Rating exam.
Flight Training as Pilot-In-Command and Second-In-Command (PIC/SIC)
Lastly, you will receive approximately 24 hours of flight training as both the Pilot-In-Command (PIC) and Second-In-Command (SIC). You will need to know how to operate the aircraft as both PIC and SIC for your King Air 350 Type Rating. This last part of the training is important because it gives you real life experience in both roles. By the end of this training with RTC Pilot, you will be confident and comfortable flying the King Air 350 as both PIC and SIC.
