The new courses will run each week at Virtual Aviation’s Cambridge Airport Training Centre, close to London Stansted.
During the 12-day course, students will spend a total of 28 hours training in the company’s Boeing 737-800 Next Generation flight simulator. This CAA-approved device was manufactured by Sim Industries and incorporates the most advanced visual system currently available for simulators.
“MCC+JOC is a crucial phase in the training of an airline pilot as it is usually the first time these students pilots will have been exposed to a multi-crew environment” said Flight Training Manager, Mark Green. “It is also the final training these students are likely to undertake before seeking employment with an airline.”
Virtual Aviation, founded in 1998, has been providing pre-assessment simulator training for several years, and in that time has helped many hundreds of pilots to secure their first airline jobs.
“It is with this unique understanding of airlines’ requirements that we have developed our MCC+JOC,” said General Manager Naveed Kapadia. “For the students who take part, it is designed to be the ideal stepping stone to joining an airline”.
Virtual Aviation offers free-of-charge Preview Visits so that prospective students can meet their staff, view the facilities and coursework, and try flying the Boeing 737-800 simulator, before committing to booking.
