FTI offers multiple options for earning a Boeing Type Rating:
Boeing 737 Type Rating
The Boeing 737 family currently consists of the B737 Classic (-300/400/500), B737NG (-600/700/ 800/900) and the B737 Max which is slated for delivery in 2017. With 9,600 + airframes delivered and another 4,500 on order, the B737 is the most popular jetliner ever conceived. According to Boeing, more than 342 airlines in 111 countries fly B737. As of 2012 there were 4,000 B737NGs delivered and by one estimate there are two B737s departing or landing somewhere every five seconds. Considering that a single type rating is valid across all series, the B737 Type Rating is one of the most flexible ratings a pilot can hold.
If you are looking for a marketable type rating, the Boeing 737 is it.
Boeing 747 Type Rating
The Boeing 747 is likely the most and recognizable aircraft in the world. With more than 1,500 airframes delivered since its inception, the B747 has a storied history of providing a global reach to long haul passengers and cargo operators. Boeing had originally planned for the B747 to become obsolete after about 400 airframes were delivered because supersonic airplanes were supposed to become the norm in passenger service. History had other plans for the B747. The last US airline to operate the B747-400 will cease B747 operations in late 2017, however overseas carriers and cargo operators plan to operate the B747 for many years to come. With a cruise speed of 0.86 Mach, a 7,500 nm range, and 5,600 cubic feet of cargo capacity, the B747 is tough to beat when it comes to moving cargo around the world.
Flight Training International offers type rating courses for the Boeing 747-200 and Boeing 747-400.
Flight Engineer – Turbojet
They keep saying Flight Engineers will go away, but somehow airplanes like the B747-200 continue to be repurposed around the world. As long as these original Jumbo Jets continue to fly, operators will need Turbojet Rated Flight Engineers.
FTI can provide an initial or recurrent FE Turbojet Certificate on the Boeing 747-200.
Boeing 757 Type Rating
Ask any pilot who has flown it and they are likely to tell you that the Boeing 757 is the best airliner they’ve ever flown. Intended to replace the smaller three-engine B727 on short and medium routes and to takeoff and land from smaller runways, the B757 can carry 200 to 295 passengers up to 4,100 nautical miles. Perhaps the attribute that most endears the B757 to pilots is that whether you are talking about short runways, high altitude airports or service ceilings, the B757 seeming never finds itself in a situation where it is underpowered for the job. Designed concurrently with its wide-body sibling, the B757 shares a common type rating with the B767. While the last B757 was delivered in 2005, the jetliner continues to be operated by airlines and cargo carriers who have yet to find a suitable replacement for this workhorse.
Flight Training International offers type rating courses for the B757-200 and B757-300. Available configurations include Pratt and Whitney or Rolls Royce engines, Pegasus FMC, and IS&S Flat Panel Display System (FPDS). B757-767 differences is also available.

Boeing 767 Type Rating
Developed in tandem with the B757 in order to share a common type rating, the Boeing 767 is a wide-body twin-engine jetliner capable of carrying as many as 375 passengers and has a range of up to 6,385 nautical miles. More than 1,000 airframes have been delivered to passenger and cargo operators around the world. Conversion programs have further modified airframes to cargo use and military derivatives include the E-767 surveillance aircraft, the KC-767 and KC-46 tankers.

Boeing 777 Type Rating
The Boeing 777, commonly referred to as the “Triple Seven,” is a long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliner with a passenger capacity of up to 396 and a range more than 8,500 nautical miles. The B777 was the first passenger jet to be designed with entirely with computer-aided-design and is Boeing’s first fly by wire passenger jet. More than 1,500 B777s have been produced to date and another 400+ are on Boeing’s order books. Current variants include the B777-200 and B777-300 with the B777-X slated for delivery in 2020. The B777 shares many design features with the new 787 and the common type rating allows for a relatively short differences course between the two types.
