The Boeing 737 began to fly in 1967 and soon became a highly popular aircraft among companies, so much so that it is now the aircraft with the largest number of units sold in the history of aviation. As of December 2017, 9,846 units of this aircraft had been delivered and 4,668 were pending manufacture.
Boeing Commercial Airplanes has developed ten versions of the 737 and is planning to create the Next Generation series, which is still in production. This Boeing is the commercial jet that has been in production for the longest time.
The Boeing 737 model is the direct competitor of the Airbus A320 family, both of which are short- to medium-range narrow fuselage jet passenger aircraft.
Fun fact: There are two 737 units taking off or landing somewhere in the world every five seconds.
With an average of 1250 Boeing 737s in flight at any given time, it is easy to see why taking a Boeing B737CL and NG CFM56 level III engine type training could be very interesting for an AMT.
In order to take this type training you must hold a Part-66 license and the necessary experience required, which varies between 2 to 5 years depending on the training centre where you have taken your Basic Training.
Completing the Boeing 737's type rating training will enable you to certify the maintenance work carried out by other professionals, making your supervision a "binding statement" that preserves the airworthiness of the aircraft summarised in the CRS, the Certificate of "Release to Service".
Duration of the Course
This 737 type rating training is planned to be completed in 35 working days, in which the theoretical part is offered in a total of 25 days and 150 teaching hours, and the practical part is addressed in the remaining 10 days.
At Brok-air Training, classes are offered from Monday to Friday at the shifts requested by the students, and held for 6 hours/day in a classroom using audiovisual materials during the 25 days assigned for theoretical content.
Theoretical Part of the Course
The theoretical part is completed by passing five tests covering different levels of content included in Appendix III of Part 66, which address the detailed theoretical knowledge of the systems, structures, operations, maintenance, repair, and troubleshooting of the Boeing B737CL and NG with CFM56 engines.
Passing these theoretical tests will confirm your ability to correctly use the Boeing 737 CL and NG manuals and complete the procedures established for the development of a relevant inspection and/or related limitations.
Practical Part of the Course
Once the theoretical part has been completed, it is time to practice: You will have to apply in the hangar the knowledge you have acquired. You will face real life scenarios to learn how to manage day-to-day problems related to the correct and safe application of the manufacturer's maintenance manuals. Instructors' directions will help you become familiar with the use of technical documents, tools, and specific testing equipment to remove and replace components and nodes.
Why Brok-air Training?
Choosing the training centre is essential to complete the certification in the shortest possible time and with the highest level of knowledge. Brok-air Training offers speed, flexibility, and mobility to all its students. Being a member of a group with a presence in more than sixteen Spanish airports ensures that the course develops correctly and that the deadlines set are met.
Having worked with the aircraft model previously makes it easier to grasp concepts: The course contents are highly technical and knowing the characteristics of this aircraft improves their understanding.
The staff of professionals who teach the Boeing 737 Type Training at Brok-air Training is made up by instructors with extensive experience in both English and Spanish. They have been trained and actively work as Aircraft Maintenance Technicians and Aeronautical Engineers within the Brok-Air Aviation Group with over 20 years of experience in the industry, have more than 3 aircraft models in their Part 66 licenses, and they regularly issue certifications for aircrafts such as the Boeing 747 Jumbo, Boeing 717, or Airbus 320.
Currently, Brok-air Training is the only academy in Malta and Tenerife capable and authorised to offer type courses for aircrafts over 5,700 kg. We have experience in teaching both Boeing 737NG and Airbus A320 type courses and have access to several airports for the practical sessions required by regulations.
In Tenerife, Brok-air Training has state-of-the-art facilities as well as a full flight simulator built into an A320 fuselage that is unique in Spain. This simulator will be very useful not only for aircraft maintenance engineering, but also for the pilots to gain necessary hours to complete their aviation training.
The partnership with Brok-air Technics, an approved MRO with 10 years in the market, makes it possible for us to offer practical training in real aircrafts from partner companies such as: IAG Group, EasyJet, Travel Services, Enter Air, Air Europa, SAS, or Novair, among others.
