PABC will soon become “the resource” that aspiring Pilots and Sponsors will use to find the high-quality Ab Initio programs that deliver the best (knowledge) training.
Ab Initio Pilot Training Providers will also be recognized for the quality of their programs, if 80% or more of the graduates of their flight programs consistently score 80% or higher on PABC’s Certification Tests.
PABC acknowledges top-quality training providers by:
NOTE: PABC’s criteria and testing focus exclusively on Pilots’ theoretical knowledge and knowledge competency, not their flying skills.
80% or more of an Ab Initio Provider’s graduates consistently pass PABC’s tests
with scores of 80% or higher, that training program will be recognized on
PABC’s website as a PABC-Recognized
NOTE: This honor is given to the entire training organization, not to a specific individual.
To be eligible for this award, Program Providers must cover
PABC’s Professional Pilot training criteria in its course of studies. This
ensures that each pilot has acquired the range of knowledge and related
competencies needed to be well-prepared to enter Airline New Hire training.
NOTE: Those PABC Criteria include BOTH the knowledge and competency requirements defined by the FAA’s Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and PABC’s Knowledge and Competency Certification Criteria.
