National Flight Centre in conjunction with Pathfinder Aviation are now conducting MCC courses. A three day ground school is conveniently located in the class rooms at Weston Airport along with 5 days of flying at Dublin Airport in the 737 flight simulator. All ground and Flight training is taught by experienced Airline Instructors and Examiners.
The aim of this course syllabus is to develope a pilot's non-technical skills for working in a multi-crew environment, in order to safely operate a multi-crew, multi-engine aircraft under IFR conditions.
The purpose of carrying out Multi-Crew Co-operation training is:
- To ensure that when operating in a multi-crew envirronment the Pilot in Command fulfils management and decision making functions irrespective of being pilot flying or pilot monitoring.
- To ensure that pilot flying and pilot monitoring tasks are clearly specified such that the pilot flying can direct his full attention to handling and contolling the aeroplane.
- To ensure that co-operation is effected in an orderly way.
- To ensure mutual supervision, information and support between crew members at all times.
After completing this course students should:
- Have a heightened awareness of the significance of decision making, communications, division of tasks, use of checklists, mutual supervision and mutual support, as they relate to a Multi-Crew Multi-Engine aircraft, in normal, abnormal and emergency situations.
- Have a greater awareness of their own personal style of leadership and the way in which it will foster greater crew effectiveness.
- Have a greater awarness of how behaviour in normal situations powerfully impacts on crew functions in high workload/stressful situations.
- Have a better awareness of how to make best use of crew co-operation techniques.
An applicant must have a valid Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (A). The course is appropriate for qualified pilots who have no previous experience of operating in a multi-crew enviroment. The trainee's licence will be checked to ensure he has a valis Multi-Engine Instrument Rating by the Training Administrator.
The course is divided into two parts, theroetical knowledge training and synthetic flight training. In both sections students can expect:
- To be taught basic skills to help them to function as effective team members
- To learn and practice skills necessary to become effective flight crew
- To be exercised in the role of both Pilot Flying and Pilot Monitoring
Duration of Course
The course is 8 days of which:
3 days theoretical knowledge training and 5 days synthetic flight training
