In the webinar we will discuss the following themes which can occur during RT:

– Common simulator errors
– Manual flying skills after you have not flown for some time
– Dealing with distractions, well being and staying positive
– We will also discuss why RTW packages are normal
– Why pilots have to do RTW, and what is involved

Four experienced Captains formed a panel offering expertise and advice about facing ‘return to work’ training and refresh the competencies commercial pilots need to operate safely.

Accredited courses and training programmes

The Royal Aeronautical Society is licensed by the Engineering Council to accredit academic programmes which are deemed to meet all or part of the educational requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). While becoming an Incorporated or Chartered Engineer is not solely based on academic qualifications but also relevant work experience gained at the required level, undertaking an accredited course helps you prepare for professional engineering  registration.

Graduates with accredited degrees have a distinct advantage when they apply for CEng or IEng and many employers give preference to graduates with accredited degrees.

A number of aero employers’ professional development training programmes, including apprenticeships and graduate programmes, are also accredited for either EngTech (Engineering Technician), IEng or CEng professional registration.

Full listings of aerospace engineering related courses and training programmes accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society are available on their website. Visit:
