A320 Type Rating

Type Rating certification is essential for a pilot if they want a career as an airline pilot. Investing in the A320 Type Rating proves advantageous for the following reasons.

Leader in the market

The A320 Family order book at the end of February 2024 stood at 18,460 aircraft, making it the world’s best-selling commercial aircraft. In 2023, customers worldwide ordered more than 1,800 aircraft.

Fly-by-wire aircraft

The A320 Family’s cockpit shares commonalities with the other Airbus aircraft. A single Type Rating enables pilots to fly A319, A320, and A321. They can also easily step up to Airbus’ widebody fly-by-wire aircraft with Cross Crew Qualification, opening opportunities for versatility in their flying assignments and giving airlines greater flexibility in deploying the flight crews.

BAA training has experience preparing Indian pilots

BAA Training has extensive experience working with Indian pilots. More than 150 students from India hold Type Rating certificates issued by BAA Training, and the majority of them are already successful pilots.

India is key aviation market

IATA says that India is a key aviation market for the Asia Pacific region as well as the rest of the world and will likely see robust air travel demand in years to come. In 2024, the market size is USD 13.89 Billion, forecasted to double to USD 26.08 Billion in 2030, according to the Indian market researcher Mordor Intelligence.
