|Quoting Ckfred (Reply 2):|
The FAA does allow pilots to be qualified on both the 757 and 767, since their cockpits are virtually identical, even though they are very different in terms of performance and procedures
|Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 6):|
A friend of mine who I bump into now and then at US is qualified on the A330/320 series and the 767/757. He told me he got bumped but is still qualified to fly both types.
So, its not that uncommon to see a guy fly a 757, then go to a 737 flt.

so, take Northwest -- dc-9's are going away -- replaced by ERJ's (at least I hope so)/ The NWA dc-9 pilots/first officers can't fly the airbus, are they being re-trained on the ERJ?
|Quoting LGAtoIND (Reply 7):|
Are these 2 aircraft really that much different to fly?
|Quoting Antiuser (Reply 15):|
pilots rated on the A320 can transition to the A330 or A340 in a little over a week. The A380 cockpit was designed with commonality in mind as well, so A330/340 pilots can quickly transition to the big bird, although I don't know how long the transition training would take.
