Type rating Boeing 737 NG
 
People of PPrune :)

I just got my licence, did the MCC and got a JOC (Boeing 737ng), and are now considering to begin on the Boeing 737 NG type rating course.

My question is if anybody has good experience/advise on any school/firms that offer the training here in Europe?

Secondary any good advice for a young "grasshopper" pilot eager to start off his carreer?

Apply to Ryanair and you will get type rating, not completely for free but at quite discounted price.

As mentioned above, there is no point in doing this. Most if not all airlines would make you do the full type rating again, at a cost.

The worst thing you can probably do is purchase a type rating with no job. Not only is it a waste of money, but you actually get yourself blacklisted by many employers who won't even let you redo the type rating with them.

Hi,

As said above. Don't pay for your TR without a job. Mostly, even companies with self-paid TR will ask you to do it under their contracted training centre, because their pilots work there as instructors and It means for them that you'll be working under their OPS since the very beginning of your TR. The other side of the coin is, that you can pay for 737NG TR and you'll find a job on A320 with paid TR (now you've wasted 26000).

At the end, If 737NG is your dream aircraft.. still DON'T DO IT! There're lots of topics saying to not look for your first job with an aircraft preference (737 vs A320 - for example). If you're a newborn fish in the pond like me, having 200HRS - just apply for some jobs and get the first one on the jet to move your career. After 2-3 years being a :mad: in some :mad: airline you'll be able to select what do you want, what do you prefer and what your wife thinks is the best for you :ok: .

I'm really sorry - I know This is an off-topic, but I'm trying to protect you. A friend of mine did this huge mistake with 737 TR and He hasn't been able to find a job on the front seat for the last 3 years.

Take care,

Please take off this idea from your head.

Take time to apply and you will get a job. It's has never been as good as now to find a job. Estimate yourself lucky for finishing in such an era.
