Is it possible for me to do a self-sponsored type-rating A320 in Malaysia?
What is the duration and the cost of the type-rating course?
I have partially answered this question earlier but under a different query. Yes, you can do an A320 Type Rating in Malaysia at AACE (Asian Aviation Centre of Excellence) – a joint venture between Air Asia and CAE. However, this is subjected to you meeting the some requirements (please confirm with AACE) below:-
If you do not have jet experience, you must follow "jet familiarisation entry level course”. The regulation requirement is that you must undergo a MCC (Multi Crew Cooperation) Course as well.
• Valid and current CPL
• Instrument Rating (IR) on multi engine airplane
• ATPL: written test
Flight experience: 220 hours
- 100 hours as pilot in command (PIC)
- 25 hours of multi-engine air plane (10 hours can be completed in a simulator)
- Fluent in English
The fees (not the latest) details I have are as follows:-
Full Course (Ground School and FFS, Inclusive of Instructor Services and Examiner)
1. Entry Level Training Course- USD3,700 per person
2. Entry Level Training / Multi Crew Cooperation Course - USD8,600 per person
3. A320 Standard Transition Course- USD21,200 per person
Remedial sessions, if applicable: USD3,000 per session per crew*
*crew = two pilots
• The courses are offered under a crew concept (2 pilots)
• The price quoted is based on the premise of the crew concept.
• Eligibility for course/s is subject to meeting the necessary prerequisites.
• The courses are delivered under DCA Malaysia authorizations.
• The client is responsible for ensuring their local authority approvals are met.
This cost structure does not include additional remedial sessions, if deemed necessary.
I believe AACE is rather occupied with a lot of training going on right now. However, you can make an enquiry on the duration and latest cost to:-
