Training courses can be run at our facilities in Braunschweig, Germany, at the customer’s premises, or a combination of both.

Being it schedule, sequence or assets – TPL takes great pride in being able to set up a flexible training regime, accommodating your individual needs and schedules!

With our instructor being a certified Flight Validation Pilot himself, we would also like to highlight that practical training can take place on actual Flight Validation missions, thus generating revenue that might offset or even compensate for the training cost.

And talking about cost: the cost for training a Flight Validation Pilot inevitably depends on a number of variables (assets available, time required, travel cost involved, etc.), but by and large it is fair to say that the total cost per pilot roughly amounts to the cost of a typical type rating course at a renowned training organisation.

So whatever your individual training requirements: talk to us, we are more than glad to provide a training solution accommodating your individual needs!
