Default How does AQP work at your airline?

Any information appreciated, like:

What airline - Legacy/Major/LCC/Regional?
Duration of an AQP event?
Ground school portion? What does it consist of?
Simulator portion? What does it consist of?
What's maneuver validation?
Which day can you get credit for sim activities for the final ride? Eg, if you pass a maneuver on day 1 then you don't repeat it during the final check on day 2?
Unlike a PC, is it true AQP is non-jeopardy?

Just looking for any information on how an airline AQP works. Thank you.

Does Spirit have plans to get Aqp in the future?

Isn't AQP where you teach yourself the test question, take the test you learned all the answers to, get in the sim and do all the stuff you did in your old plane, and then a little while later some guy says you're done.

I believe so and I believe it is becoming an FAA requirement to have it in addition to adoption of FOQA, LOSA, SMS, etc.

Don't know what you mean by that. FO's do 1 PC check a year which is extremely canned and standardized.

I've been through AQP at a previous carrier and it in no way resembles the training done at NK. Did something change in the last month?
