King Schools has also identified a gap in pilot training at a more advanced level: preparing a newly hired pilot for Part 121 airline training. The company engaged veteran instructor and airline pilot Joe Muñoz to create the Part 121 Airline Operations course to fill that gap. Muñoz, the CEO and co-founder of 1StepPrep said, “This is a program I wish I would have had when I started my career. Like many pilots, my first flying job was for Part 135 charter. Many future airline pilots will also be coming up from a charter, corporate, military, or even general aviation background. This course will give those new airline pilots the terminology and operational knowledge essential for Part 121 flying.” The course includes the following topics: Terminology, Key Personnel, Amendments, Example Amendments, Flight Plan Review, Alternates, Briefing a Jeppesen Chart, Inoperative Equipment, Pushback Sequence, and other examples of typical airline flying scenarios.
