5th Feb 2004, 19:11
As a french pilot in a french airline, I'm looking for informations on Multi fleet flying experienced pilots on both A 320 and A 330.
I know a couple of airlines in UK and Swiss are doing it.
Preferbly on private email.

Thank you

OK no pb.

Is there any body from My Travel , TC or Monarch who could tell us how they operate both aircraft.
How many pilot fly it, how many flights on type a month, did you get any raise only because of that type of ops; what about the training( reccurent sims)
Many more questions coming but my is almost ready to give birth so I have to go.

Cathay Pacific in Hong Kong fly A340 and A330 - MFF.

The CCQ (Cross crew Qualification) works by the pilot being fully endorsed on one type. After a certain period of experience on this first type (say 200 hours), they are enabled to do a day course on "Differences" and a training sim. This is followed by the regulatory sims then some line training.

A line check is followed by a minimum number of sectors on only the new type (say 10), then they are fully qualified to fly both types.

To keep legally current on both types, a pilot must do at least 3 T/O's & LDG's in 90 days, one of which must be on the other type.

Each concurrent annual line check must be on the other type than the previous one.

Each 6 months the regulatory sims (Instrument Rating, Aircraft Rating and IAL) must be done on the other type than the type checked on the previous one.

I hope this info helps.

Thank you very much backin 5 for all the informations on A 340 330 MFF .
I was more interested on british charter airlines experiences.
We, in our airline flew the 320 for 6 years and now fly A330.
Because it would be very interesting to fly both type on MFF, I was looking for infos on working conditions and associated wages. (more a union point of of view)

thank you

Ok...A330-A340, would concede (more or less) the same for type ratings.
Maybe adding the A320...quite possibly.

Picture this.

Triple qualified guys.

Yes. it was possible, and I personally know of two guys that did just that...for over five years (there were more than ten, that I knew of..more possible).
Triple qualified.
Yes, they spent a LOT of time in the sim, but it meant that guys down line had the ability to operate whatever came their way.
They have my admiration...a difficult position, for sure.
I would personally never hope to be in this position, yet these guys carried on regardless...superb performance.:ok:
