I just have question about training. After you get hired by American, what process do you go through before actually flying a plane?

Well.. Flight attendants only train for a month while it usually takes the pilots two months or a bit more. So the flight attendants often say... wow another month of training I could have been a pilot. :D

Basica indoc .. company stuff
Home study ground school then ground school with an instructor and your sim partner.
Couple weeks of simulator.

AA training is through and meets all FAA requirements. Currently done via AQP.

Two weeks of orientation/basic indoc in Dallas learning company policies and "how to be an airline pilot at AA". There's other stuff in there like leadership training, TEM, and emergency equipment training. You'll also spend a lot of time inprocessing as an employee during indoc (email/systems access, pay, bennies, etc.).

After that (a few days after indoc), you'll do a one-day base indoc wherever you were assigned.

After that (2-4 weeks on avg.), you'll go back to Dallas (everything except E190) or go to Charlotte (E190) for aircraft training. 737's and 320's have 20-25 hrs of CBT's before you show up. E190's don't. Aircraft training (ground school/sims) last about 3-1/2 to 4 weeks.

After that, observation rides and OE. International assignments get an additional 2-3 days of international training in Dallas.

I think that's about it...

This was the original posters first and only post... asking about "training before actually flying a plane."

Short answer....if you meet the extensive prerequisite experience, you already know in a broad sense what training consists of.

If you donít know, by the time you meet the prerequisites you will.....

For everyone else, just know that the pilots at AA are thoroughly trained and evaluated before ever stepping foot in an AA cockpit
