In order to master your skills and move on to other stages of the aviation training, you will need the MCC course. Overall, it provides you all the necessary knowledge to become a proficient professional in the coordination work of a multi-pilot environment.

This course consists of realistic training as you learn to command multi-pilot and multi-engine aircraft under IFR. The Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) path is, therefore, an additional training to Commercial Pilot License (CPL).

With little or no experience at all, you can easily obtain a certificate that proves you successfully completed a standard multi-crew type rating.


The aim of this course is to develop your skills in different aspects, such as: decision making, communication, diversion of tasks and use of checklist, mutual supervision, teamwork as well as support through all the stages of flight under any conditions.
