The MCC courses allows to operate as a pilot in multi-crew flight operations in an airline or on any type of operation requiring multiple crew.
It is therefore one of the essential requirements required to the pilot by the airlines and the last step of the training.
The MCC course includes a 20 hour simulator training.
Differences between MCC and APS MCC
The real difference between the standard MCC and the MCC APS is evident in the result: in the MCC APS course the pilot learns and learns to develop also the main skills that airlines require.
EASA has, in fact, identified the weaker areas that emerged during the selections carried out by the airlines and has included in the MCC APS the development of the new skills required, which are:.

Simulators and instructor
The lack of experience of instructors in standard MCC and APS MCC courses and the use of simulators no longer in line with market demands are now the main reasons why pilots often fail to overcome the selection of airlines.
To ensure its students a high standard, Asteraviation has signed an important partnership with Ansett Aviation which is the world leader in advanced training for pilots on flight simulators.
Thanks to this partnership, MCC and APS MCC courses are provided to Asteraviation students on the most modern Full Flight Simulator (SBB) of Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 in the center of Milan Malpensa.
Asteraviation instructors providing training shall be trained above the minimum required for an MCCI (A) instructor. They are instructors in airlines with many years of experience both in the training of pilots and commanders and instructors in airlines.
