He explained back in the "old" days , you checked out when you could and kept current when you could get your landings in while the plane overnighted and an instructor was available till you were able to hold the position as a regular line holder. They did a lot of training at night between flights.
|Quoting dcaord (Thread starter):|
Simple question: Do any pilots fly different aircraft types at the same time, or are pilots only rated for one equipment type at a time and simply move from one to another as their seniority changes and seats open? Essentially, could a pilot fly the 737 in the morning then have a second flight that day flying the 767? Or for regionals, could a pilot fly the CRJ200 in the morning then the -900 in the afternoon, if that makes sense?

So now, due to safety, the price of fuel and the sophistication of simulators, the dangerous maneuvers can be performed on the ground.
|Quoting vio (Reply 9):|
I can't speak for the airlines, but I was type rated on the B200 and the B1900 at the same time. I was a "floater pilot" so I flew when they needed me to fill in. Now this was not a "short notice thing" I basically covered for my colleagues who were away at sim or on vacation.

A318/A320/A321 will almost always fly different ones day in and out.
|Quoting Tangowhisky (Reply 17):|
that must be difficult to manage with 14 different pilot groups. Time for family commonality design concept by OEMs
|Quoting DocLightning (Reply 18):|
Interestingly, I spoke with an A319 pilot for EasyJet and he told me that they do not cross-fleet between their A319s and A320s. I found that very interesting.

Maybe it's a payscale/seniority thing.
