The training is not specific to any particular aircraft type. It teaches skills that will relate to any future aircraft you may fly.
Jet orientation training (JOT) bridges the gap between the typical piston twin you may have used for your multi-engine IR and the high performance of aircraft in typical airline service. It teaches the handling idiosyncrasies of swept-wing jet transport aircraft, and how to plan for the momentum that comes with higher speed and weight so that you can keep your brain ahead of the aircraft.
Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums (RVSM) training is designed to teach pilots the equipment requirements and operating procedures for flight in RVSM airspace.
ACAS / TCAS
Airborne Collision Avoidance Systems (ACAS) is mandatory equipment for all aircraft heavier than 5700 kgs or more than 19 passengers. There are initial training and annual cyclic recurrent training courses.
Performance Based Navigation (PBN) training allows you to take advantage of the advances in aircraft equipment to improve the efficiency of your route, reduce your diversion rate at airfields
with little or unreliable equipment and improve safety.
