European Pilot Selection & Training (EPST) provides a complete ab-initio pilot training program with the intention to succesfully place you with an international airline!



EPST offers a Boeing 737/Airbus 320 TRI, SFI or MCCI course. The aim of the TRI(A) training course is to train aeroplane licence holders to the level of competence defined in EASA FCL and adequate for a TRI. The training course develops safety awareness throughout by teaching the knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to the TRI task, and is designed to give adequate training to the applicant in theoretical knowledge instruction, flight instruction and FSTD instruction to instruct for an aeroplane Type Rating for which the applicant is qualified.

MCC courses and/or Jet Orientation Courses

EPST is the specialist in MCC and Jet Orientation Training. Over the past two decades we have trained many pilots to airline standard with our Airline Jet Foundation Course (AJFC). This course is designed to give inexperienced pilots a combined MCC course and Jet Orientation Training (JOC) in order to prepare them for jet Type Ratings and Airline gradings.

Besides the AJFC course we were the first to launch the Airline Pilot Standards (APS) course in consultation with EASA. The APS course also consists of a MCC course and Jet Orientation Course and meets all current EASA demands for jet MCC training. We now offer this course to external clients as well.

On completion of either one of our MCC courses candidates will receive an EASA approved MCC certificate and will be prepared to a very high standard for Type Rating courses and airline gradings.

If you would like more detailed information about these courses, please contact us!

Type Rating

Type Rating B737-800 or A320

EPST provides an EASA A320 and B737-800 NG Type Rating. The unique offer is € 14.750,-, excluding Base Training (this will be done through JetTime in Denmark). We start a Type Rating every month.


The aim of the T/R is to enable trainees to become proficient, by gaining knowledge and skills, in order to operate a type specific aircraft (A320 or 737NG) safely and efficiently. The training integrates multi crew co-ordination (MCC) skills applicable to working in the multi-crew environment; which typically addresses:

  1. Decision-making/taking;
  2. Communication;
  3. Division of tasks;
  4. Use of checklists;
  5. Application of SOPs;
  6. Mutual supervision;
  7. Teamwork;
  8. Support through all phases of flight under normal, abnormal and emergency conditions.

By the end of the course, trainees should be able to:

  1. Enable the aircraft commander to fulfil his overall management and decisionmaking/taking functions, whether as pilot flying (PF) or as pilot monitoring (PM).
  2. Enable the tasks of the PF and the PM to be specified and distributed in such a manner that the PF can direct his primary attention to the short-term operational management, handling and control of the aircraft.
  3. Effect co-operation between crewmembers in an orderly manner appropriate to the normal, abnormal or emergency situations encountered.
  4. Ensure mutual supervision, information and support between crewmembers at all times.
