Course Description

IAT’s MCC course gives students a realistic training in operating a multi-pilot, multi-engine aircraft in a Full Flight Simulator (FSS). The objectives of the training are to introduce the student pilot to crew resource management topics which include communication, teamwork and support, mutual supervision, diversion of tasks, use of checklists, and optimum decision making throughout all phases of flight under normal, abnormal and emergency conditions. The training emphasizes the development of non-technical skills applicable to working in a multi-crew environment.

AIRLINE PILOT STANDARD MCC (APS MCC)

Course description

The Airline Pilot Standard MCC (APS MCC) is the next stepping stone for students with a Multi-Crew Cooperation certificate. The course will develop all the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to help pilots to fit easily into an airline career and enhance the chances of passing an airline assessment.

The course is designed by some of Europe's leading airlines to provide enhanced MCC that trains pilots in multi-crew competencies to airline standards. It is designed to bring new pilots all the knowledge and skills necessary to pass an airline assessment and to be able to adapt easily to a modern airline working environment in a modern swept-wing jet. The course emphasizes manual handling and CRM skills all of which are trained and assessed using the standards of ICAO Pilot Core Competencies.

The APS MCC includes jet orientation training which is required and specified in the APS MCC EASA requirements (EASA Part-FCL AMC2 FCL.735.A) which now demands specific qualifications of the simulator used and instructor qualifications.

For many airlines, the completion of a APS MCC is now a mandatory prerequisite to the pilot selection process.
