Currently an FO on a 737-300, thinking about doing the 737NG type wondering where the best/ cheapest place for someone like me to go...

I assume they have a slightly abreviated (cheaper) course for those current on type somewhere...

If your already typed on the B737 then your already typed. Thank you for shopping at Kmart. You just saved a wad of cash.

You are talking about differences training .

I assumed that current on type means your typed and current. My bad!

just curious but why would you do this? Why pay out of pocket? Don't you have to pay the rent, the light bill, and make a car payment, like the rest of us?

My guess is that he is a America west furlough so he's looking to get the type for southwest or overseas airlines.

Higher power has a reduced rate for pilots that have 500 hours of 737 time as does K&S. I'm sure most of the type rating companies have short courses aswell

you got it...
I realize for SWA a 737 type is a 737 type but many of the overseas gigs want 737NG specific types. Thanks for the info...

You can't have 737NG type. It's all 737. What matters is the NG experience...

according to the packet they sent if you have 1000 hours 737 classic time you need a 737NG type...

I guess I'll just have to call K&S tomorrow and find out what they offer

Its a common type. Do you mean differences training? You can't get a 737NG type.

I just did an abbreviated course at Higher Power. It was BEYOND easy. Good training, good people, highly recommended.

I was flushed out of the US market when Aloha went out of business, thank you Dave Banmiller, Ron Burkle, Johnny Ornstein, and a few others :0) The company I got picked up with sent me to an SIC recurrent at HPA. While there they let me toss an extra $3g at them to do the type rating....Being able to do it in the NG was a huge bonus as the classic scares me :0) Can't understand all those weird dials and schtuff....

All kidding aside, contact HPA... they are pretty good peeps and provide great service as far as I'm concerned....good luck!

Oh and freight dog, NG experience helps, but it aint ALL that.....

over sea airlines want a type in the ng if they fly the 737-700,800,900,
you see they consider most varients (sp) a different type. but they also realize that faa doesn't nit pick every different model, ie 747-200/100, or the 737- 200-300. but foreign aviation administrations do have a different system. they require you to carry your log book with you, it must be current and validated by your company every so often, also if you have a JAA atpl then it has an expiry date unlike our faa atp. The actual license expires every year. our version of that would be an yearly pc check in type.
so just send them what they want and don't over think it.

A 737 type is a 737 type. There is no distinction. Get it the cheapest route. For SWA, a 737 is a 737. For over seas flying, the same applies and it the time in model that counts. There are lots of "non-rated" 737 jobs overseas available. Never done any of them but try http://www.parcaviation.aero/ A pilot in my Guard unit is on contract number two, based out of JFK (not on a 737, though).

I do see international job postings stating 737 EFIS. Not sure if all of the classics out there use the tubes or not. Don't think it would be a big difference but there seems to be a preference for people with glass time. Again, many of the 737-300/500s out there (except SWA) seem to use the tubes...

Hi!

They have different type ratings overseas than in the US.

For example, in the US, there is one type rating for DC-9/MD-8x/MD-9x/B-717.

In some Asian countries, there are at least 3 type ratings:
DC-9, MD-8x, MD-9x
