Skills Refresher Days

New to Resilient Pilot’s self-development programme portfolio, our skills refresher days provide an opportunity for you to prepare for an upcoming LPC. Consisting of a half day technical and half day non-technical refresher, these one-day ‘boot camps’ are run by our experienced Resilient Pilot TRI/TRE/SFI/SFEs and CRMT mentors. 


We’ve teamed up with leading UK ATOs, Skyborne Airline Academy n Cheltenham and Leading Edge Aviation Academy in Oxford to provide type-rated pilots with access to quality devices and facilities; and aim to introduce further types and locations in the future if the demand is there.

Technical Session

The technical module involves time in either Skyborne’s B737 MAX FTD-1 or Leading Edge’s A320 FTD-1 Fixed Base Simulator: One hour will be spent as PF, the second hour as PM. The aim of the session is to establish the pilot’s readiness to complete an upcoming LPC, but the day could also be used to refresh skills. 

The flying exercises will include general handling, TCAS, OEI manually flown 3D App, GA, Landing and EFATO. 

Our instructors can work to most operator SOPs for familiarity, and these sessions will operate under a non-jeopardy policy to help build confidence, competence and resilience.


A post sim wash-up encouraging self-evaluation, will allow you to discuss your level of competence and guidance can be given on whether further training is advisable prior to completing an expensive LPC. 

Non-Technical Session

The non-tech module in the classroom focusses upon skills that have been identified by Regulators around the world to be at risk due to lack of operational exposure. The session goal is to help you better prepare for those startle/surprise events in a post pandemic world of aviation. 


Other important bits...

Upon completion of the full day, you’ll receive a certificate of attendance to present at future employment opportunities as a record of their commitment to continued professional development despite being non-operational. 

Minimum course numbers apply.

What Clients Say - November 2021

"I attended the Resilient Pilot SRD and LPC with a couple of my former colleagues. Both days were very well run and all instructors and examiners were highly accommodating. The SRD was particularly helpful. It provided great preparation for the LPC, and an excellent way to refresh technical skills. The Non-Technical session was a nice way to connect, identify skills at risk and speak about our experience during the last 18 months or so.  I would highly recommend to any flight crew who is looking to keep current.
