Caerdav launches ‘all in one’ APS MCC

Caerdav APS MCC

Caerdav has launched a new enhanced MCC Training to Airline Pilot Standards (APS MCC) course, designed to provide an ‘all-in-one’ qualification for those looking to begin a career as a commercial pilot.

The course brings together separate programmes already offered by the South Wales-based pilot training company into a single extended bloc of classroom learning and simulator sessions.

Caerdav’s new APS MCC course comprises a Jet Orientation Course (JOC), Multi-Crew Cooperation Course (MCC), Upset Recovery and Airline Operation. It will equip trainees who already hold an Airline Transport Pilot Licence with all the skills they require to secure a career with a major passenger operator.

On completion of the programme, candidates will be able to prevent, recognise and recover from aeroplane upset, and safely operate multi-pilot, multi-engine aircraft under IFR.

Paul Jones, head of training, Caerdav, said, “Previously, would-be airline pilots would go on multiple courses but increasingly, new entrants into the industry want to complete all their training in one go.

“Our new APS-MCC course responds to that demand and will help new pilots qualify more quickly without compromising on quality – vital when there is a global pilot shortage.”

Caerdav’s APS-MCC course includes five days of theoretical classroom training combined with 40 hours in one of the company’s Boeing 747-400 simulators.

Courses begin in April and are designed to enable trainees to work with any EASA-certified airline. Once complete, the trainee will have completed the first step towards their first Type Rating course.

Caerdav is a fully-approved and certified MRO and pilot training company based at the St Athan-Cardiff Airport Aerospace Enterprise Zone in South Wales, United Kingdom.
