London City Special Airport Training (eLearning & Simulator)

This course provides pilots seeking approval for operations at London City (EGLC/LCY) Airport, with familiarization of all aspects of operations.  Included in the 1.5-hour eLearning ground school are airport constraints, the London City Airport Noise Program, steep approaches, landings, noise abatement departures, aircraft-specific AFM procedures, and aircraft-specific performance calculations.  The 1.5-hour simulator portion allows pilots to practice the demanding AFM procedures required to gain confidence and proficiency.  Pilots will receive a Record of Training indicating the specific training completed.

This course provides highly-focused training.  However, it does not provide authorization for operations at London City Airport.  The Operator is responsible for contacting London City Airport Operations and Control Center to begin the approval process.
