MCC and JOC courses step up pro pilot training on Malta

Pilot training on the island of Malta has taken a step up with the Professional Aviation Training Academy – Malta being approved by EASA to carry out Multi-Crew Courses (MCC) with its ALSIM ALX flight simulator. Later this summer, it will also be able to conduct the Jet Orientation Course (JOC) as well.

That’s not all. PATA-M is going through a major rebranding, adding new aircraft to its fleet and has signed up with two other international flight schools.

Iselle McCalman said, “The new branding, for both our companies, will be revealed this week. The companies are Malta School of Flying trading as Professional Aviation Training Academy – Malta (ATO) and Malta Wings (AOC).

“MSoF is experiencing exceptional growth and is now ready for the next phase of development. Since MSoF has been using the same branding since its inception in 2004, it was important to make a fresh statement about our future as an advanced and modern training facility.

“So, firstly it is a move from being known as Malta School of Flying to using Professional Aviation Training Academy – Malta as our trading brand. This emphasises our standing as a professional ATO for the Maltese, UK, European and North African markets, but also catering for our new ventures into other regions such as Eastern Europe and Asia.

“This statement is confirmed by our record of a 100% first-time pass rate for all our advanced courses, since first offering MEP/IR/CPL. We are also the only facility in Malta offering in-house FI courses and now also the MCC.

“The aircraft we have added to our fleet are another Cessna 172 for advanced training and a Tecnam P2002JF that will mostly be used for hour-building. This is in addition to our current fleet of 2 x C172, 2 x Tecnam P92JS, 1 x Tecnam P2006T and the ALSIM ALX simulator.

“Along with the rebranding and the numerous new projects we are currently working on, we are also enlarging our offices and training facilities at Malta International Airport. We have dedicated Radio Telephony training rooms with instruction offered by local ATC, English language proficiency instructors to assist foreign students, and additional well-equipped lecture and briefing rooms.”
