The training course must include at least 12 take-offs and landings, performed under the supervision of your instructor in the same aeroplane that you are completing the type rating for.
You must demonstrate that you can complete the following to the advanced level that will be needed to operate and interact as co-pilot of a multi-pilot turbine powered aeroplane under visual and instrument conditions:
