Aircraft Type

How difficult are aircraft type rating courses for Twin Turboprop regional airliners?

Or more specifically for the ATR72-500?

I have just joined an airline and my type rating course is due to start next month.

I'm just wondering if there is anyone out there who can tell me what to expect?
Howard.. I'm not asking whats involved I'm asking how DIFFICULT it is?

No troll answers nearly 800 (%9 best) questions. I think he's legit.

How difficult depends on you. Have you flew turboprops before? If you have it'll be hard like learning to fly any plane but, if you'e already expierence turboprops it won't be that hard. If you haven't flew any airliners at all yet alone turboprop airliners. It'll be quite a challenge ask yourself, did you learn quickly during your multi-engine training? If you did it won't be that much of a challenge.

good luck on that training.
