The Law of Primacy and the Utility of a Jet Transition Course
Stephenson, Ross L., Jr.; Ziskal, Wayne
Journal of Case Studies in Education, v8 2015
Regional jet carriers have established Pilot Pathway Programs providing partnership opportunities with collegiate aviation programs in order to fashion pilot training at the undergraduate level. These partnerships provide aviation students early screening for employment with regional airlines and provide the university needed access to airline training material to fully prepare these students for success during regional jet carrier hire training. One of the main issues with normal FAA recommended pilot training and licensing progression is the emphasis on single pilot operations. The regionals operate aircraft requiring a cockpit crew. The challenges of the transition to a multi crew environment are discussed. Deficiencies noted during regional jet carrier new hire training are also discussed, along with traditional undergraduate aviation curriculum. The design, benefits, and goal of a jet transition course will be presented.
