Hi Pilots,

if Your Airline operates, for example 747 AND 340...is it possible / likely or whatever that anyone gets rated on both types?

Tanks for helping my dumb brain outta here...

I am rated in various airplanes - but not current in them. Only one type.
At one time (1970s), I was current with two types at PanAm, 707 and 727...
This is the only time I flew both types.
I remember AA and TW did that a lot. But in more recent years they stopped the practice.
I remember a friend who flew both 727 and L-1011 with TW...
The one with AA was in DC-10 and 707...
Right now, my USA Licence lists 707-727-747-DC8-LRJET
My Argentina licence lists 737-747-LRJET. I am current 747 and Lear only.
To remain current on both, I must pass a check ride every 6 months.
First type this 6 months check, the other type next 6 months check...
If I have not had a check in a specific type in last 12 month, I am no longer current on that one.
Happy contrails  Smile

Second hand but SAS pilots are mostly rated on one type, although you would find some more senior Captains who were current on DC-9/MD80/MD90 (when SAS had the DC-9). Nowadays it's MD80/90 (no it's not the same rating), though only for more senior pilots. Since they have only 8 MD90s but 62 MD80s it makes sense for pilots to be current on either just MD80 or MD80+90.
