10 POINTS TO KNOW WHY YOU SHOULD START YOUR AIRLINE PILOT TRAINING WITH HUB'AIR
1-Experience is a must
Hub'air is managed by experienced professionals airlines instructors.
Knowledge transfer is our creed.
We do not delegate our courses to inexperienced instructors who are just leaving their schools to teach you how to fly in order to build up their own flying hours .
Pedagogy, passion, experience and motivation are the keys of our instruction.
Training must be fun ! it is a nice and rewarding experience to learn in a friendly environment even if the goal is difficult to achieve. We will coach you all the way to the acquisition of your license. There is no fast track procedure as it takes time and dedication to learn the right subject matter and get the right skills.
2-We know what we are talking about...
Hub'air is a team of experienced airlines pilots who are passionated about flying and teaching their passion.
We are all qualified on Boeing or/and Airbus aircrafts but also have a tremendous experience in lots of kind of aircrafts.
Some of us are also glider pilots, former fighter jet pilots. Some took part of flight tests at Airbus for aircrafts delivery while some are even aerobatic pilots at world championship level.
On the management, you will find former training manager and flight ops director of carriers operating large aircrafts.
Hub'air has been selected to be one of the few Boeing official flight school in 2014 in the PDP program and did train pilots from many countries and airlines around the world.
3-Get a Job
Since 2001, Hub'air cadets are now pilots with airlines such
Air France, Brussels Airlines, Luxair, Cargolux, ASL, TUI, Qatar Airways, Emirates, DHL, Ryanair, Easyjet, Air Belgium, Air Arabia, Cathay Pacific to name a few...
We can say that when the market is looking for pilots , almost all our cadets find a job BUT we can certainly say that when the market is down , we have been able to see many of our cadets still being able to be hired because of their higher standards.
Selection is one of the upmost value of Hub'air. After the entry test, we will make a strong assessment after 15h of flight training. We also have the ethics and honesty to stop you if we see no chance of success. This avoid spending a huge amount of money for nothing.
If you are struggling at some stage, we will offer you to take extra training after evaluating together the necessity of it.
We have a strong expertise in hiring pilots for the airlines and we use it to get our students the best chances of getting their first job as copilot.
4-BACK to BASICS
You will learn to fly on taildragger aircraft. It is a challenging and demanding plane well known by aviators.
Where other schools are looking to ease you the training in flying new easy aircrafts, we are going to let you fly all your initial hours dual and solo in a some more difficult, tough and fun plane. It is much more rewarding and gives you better skills.
Tailwheel aircrafts won't let you get away with ignoring the basics.
Get seat of the pants flying, no instruments at this stage.
You need to become an aviator first prior to become an airline pilot...do not shorten this important step or you will be part of the new generation of system operators and not a pilot !
5-Upset Recovery Training
Nowadays, there is a strong emphasis on upset recovery
training as many airlines pilots can not react properly approaching an unusual phase of flight.
Historically, more than 20 years ago, airlines pilots were trained to fly aerobatic in order to understand how an aircraft is reacting when flying out of the usual attitude of flight. They would also demonstrate, alone on board, that they did acquire the skills to control an aircraft in any positions.
At Hub'air , you will be flying more than 10 hours of aerobatics including solo aerobatic flights under the supervision of staff being airline instructor and aerobatic instructor at world championship level.
Very few schools will allow you to do solo aerobatics as this requires a great deal of confidence in the students' skills, the instructor's knowledge and the material. It requires a lot of expertise ...
Hub'air has a strong experience of simulators.
Even if we consider that flying a real aircraft is usually preferable, we also recognize that flying a procedure trainer or a full flight simulator helps to reduce the costs and allow to perform certain maneuvres not practical in the reality.
So, Hub'air has been a leader in flight simulation by introducing the first FNPT2 MCC in Belgium in 2001.
Later, being the first to introduce the MFTD Airbus A320 certified STD2A in the world. Also, Hub'air took part in the set up of simcenters operating full flight Airbus and Boeing simulators.
Nowadays, we consider that the use of new generation of Flight Training Device (FTD) at the end of the training will give a much better understanding prior starting an initial type rating.
While we consider that electronic flight instrument systems (EFIS) are not at suitable to teach the basics in visual flight condition (VFR), Hub'air has been leader, since 2004, in using EFIS equipped aircrafts for the instruments flying.
As these instruments are similar to those used in Airbus and Boeing cockpits , it makes sense to familiarize the cadets with their future tools.
Nevertheless, we do not make short cuts and always insist on training using traditional methods which are essential to develop a good situational awareness.
We have developed Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) similar to the one used in Boeing and Airbus but applicable for our training aircrafts. We even have similar technical procedures if a problem arises (MEL & CDL).
Every Student uses an Electronic Flight Bag (Ipad) since day one with all the student's library and aeronautical charts.
8-Airline Pilot Standard APS/MCC
The airline pilot standard MCC is an enhance multi crew coordination course that train pilots to the airlines standards.
At Hub'air , we make a huge difference at this level compared to many schools as we use real simulators , not generic ones, with airline instructors using standard airline operating procedures.
With more than 40 hours of simulator , you will feel really ready to start a conversion course Airbus or Boeing as you experience after the type rating will be with more than 80h of flight simulator.
We find that this total immersion in a real specific type simulator is the best way to achieve your goal of success and be better prepared than anyone when starting as first officer on a commercial jet.
Having the best multimedia presentations combined with up to date text books while having ultra-sharp quality images is important.
Having access to a full database of questions is very important to be ready for the exams.
But the most important are the teachers...
At Hub'air ,there is no compromise. You will have a teacher, mentor, coach for the complete duration of the training. There is no distance learning even if you have the possibility to use your computer at home to study.
We feel that contact hours in classroom using regular methods are very effective. The combination of excellent teachers with the best manuals on the market is giving us an exceptionally high rate of success.
Since 2001, we have been official partner of Bristol Ground School well known for the quality of their didactical materials.
