If you have an aircraft type rating - lets say a B737-300. Can you fly that aircraft irrespective of the airline.
The reason for asking is :-
I have booked my wife on a fear of flying course at Manchester in April. They charter an aircraft (B737 or A319/320) during the course and take everyone on a 45 minute flight.
I would assume that the aeroplane to be used will be based at Manchester and that they wouldn't go to the expense of ferrying a plane from another airport. During the flight the pilot makes a running commentary on what is happening.
I am guessing the the plane will be from an airline that has space capacity that day - Jet2, BMIBaby etc.
Surely a pilot for Jet2 wouldn't have the necessary "insight" to provide a commentary which is stipulated by the course ?
The course is being run by Virgin Atlantic. As VS don't operate B737 / A319 / A320 aircraft I would guess that they have a resident pilot on hand who does the flying. Could this pilot fly a Jet2 737 at Manchester, a Thomson 737 at Gatwick, a BMIBaby 737 at East Midlands etc?
