Currency Refresher

Military Airline

Course Overview

SkyWarrior and Southwest recognize that military pilots may spend less time in the cockpit as they advance in their careers.  The currency refresher course is designed to bridge the gap between invaluable prior military flight experience and 121 airline operations.  The pilot refresher program is a combination of multi-engine flight time, classroom activates and airline simulation.  This program is both accelerated and immersive with an emphasis on 121 flight operations and ATP flight tolerances.
