Jet Orientation Course

More than just a certificate

Most airlines nowadays require a JOC (Jet Orientation Course) for candidate ab-initio first officers. This training covers the transition from flying propeller airplanes to faster and more complex jet airplanes. JOC is not subject to any regulation, so you will find different programs at different prices.

It is not our ambition to offer the shortest and cheapest JOC. We aim to offer a high quality course that has an added value for your future assessment, type rating and even for your career as an airline pilot.
