We at DC-3 Airways firmly believe that you will derive far more enjoyment
during your career with DC-3 Airways if you learn to fly the DC-3 properly.
As with any airline, before you are let loose on their expensive hardware
they need to know that you are Type Rated for the aircraft they fly. To
ensure that a new pilot joining DC-3 Airways has at least a rudimentary
knowledge of flying and handling a DC-3, we have a very easy, but mandatory,
Type Rating training course which must be completed before
full freedom to all that DC-3 Airways offers may be enjoyed.
If you are not conversant with at least some technical aspects of the
DC-3 It is advisable before commencing the course to be acquainted with a
few of the aircraft’s technical details. Please spare a little time to
select the Technical/FS DC-3 Flying from the main menu and select your version of Flight
Simulator. There you will find a wealth of information that will not only
add to your knowledge of the DC-3, but will also be a source of information
which will help enormously during the Type Rating course.
On completion of the six DC-3 Type Rating flights, and the submission of
a correctly formatted pilot’s report (PIREP) for each flight, DC-3 Airways
will award you 10 hours of flight time as a bonus, and an additional bonus
will be promotion to 2nd Officer.
Please don't hesitate to use the Forum for advice - we really are a very
friendly bunch of pilots and a question on any aspect of the DC-3 or
the DC-4, and indeed many other subjects, will receive a speedy and
informative reply. Some of our pilots are currently DC-3 pilots in the real
world so we have a wealth of real world experience to call upon.
