Audit Initiated of FAA's Pilot Training Requirements

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL
the Chairmen and the Ranking Members of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and its Subcommittee on Aviation requested that we review domestic and international pilot training standards related to commercial passenger aircraft, including the use of automation. Accordingly, our audit objectives will be to (1) evaluate FAA’s process for establishing pilot training requirements for U.S. and foreign air carriers operating U.S.-certificated large passenger aircraft, and (2) review international civil aviation authorities’ requirements for air carrier pilot training regarding the use of flight deck automation.

Given the sterling efforts by the Senate in recent days, wouldn't hold breath in expectation of value adding.

The US Inspector General needs to look no further than the UK CAA CAP 509 syllabus, circa 1988, approved for CPL/IR training conducted by BRITISH AEROSPACE , and probably OATS, Oxford.

Prestwick used the AS 202 Bravo for the 52 hour PPL basic phase, and again for the final GH (PT5) SE phase test.
The only change would be to reduce the 200 hours flying to probably 170-180 hours. The 200 hours was necessary to satisfy the 100 hours P1, prior to SPIC being introduced under JAR.

Turning aircraft upside down is what professional training was lacking prior to the gesture of UPRT now in force.

As for AUTOMATION, separate postings..........do not confuse training for initial licence issue with multi crew operations.

This audit has nothing to do with getting a private or commercial certificate. It will look at how an airline teaches their pilots to operate the particular type aircraft they will be flying for that airline including the use of that aircraft's automation systems.

Whilst I recognise what you are saying, unless the basic training is sound, the type rating training et seq will be compromised. One acid test during the airline phase training is the ability the hand fly using RAW DATA and the ability to TRIM accurately. Then introduction of FLIGHT DIRECTORS and manual trimming; then the AUTO PILOT/THROTTLE.
Read and understand the FMAs.
