Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) Course

The higher level of piloting an aircraft

Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) Course in pilot school „Aviacom Flight Academy“ (AFA) includes theory and practical training with a total duration of 9 working days. You can take a multi-crew cooperation (MCC) course separately or as a part of the aircraft type training course.

The price of the right decision. The main MCC course goal is to provide you with as much practical knowledge of how to work in multi-crew staff with other pilots. When flying, sometimes occur situations, where decisions must be taken the same second, both the captain and the second pilot have to understand each other from half a word and cooperate successfully. Sometimes these decisions cost human life. For example, do you know why in 2011th the elite Yaroslavl hockey team „Lokomotiv“ has died, when the plane Yak-42 just after takeoff, fell? The study showed that the aircraft airborne, the second pilot suddenly put the brake on, and the commander could not change anything. Perhaps they did not have a good MCC course.

During AFA multi-crew co-operation course you will learn how to make optimal decisions and to cooperate with a colleague in normal and under the most extreme flying conditions.

Work distribution in cockpit. Not for nothing is conceived that large aircraft has to be piloted by two pilots, and a teamwork in a cockpit must go very smoothly. During multi-crew cooperation (MCC) course you will learn the necessary communication and teamwork skills, you will know, what is the correct way to distribute tasks and monitor each other's actions.

Multi-crew co-operation (MCC) training is the way to a higher level of professionalism of piloting the plane and becoming a good plane captain or co-pilot.

I liked the fact, that training was conducted actually by experienced instructors, who not only set out the theory, but also gave some good examples from practice. Exercises and tasks while flying were very useful. After completing the MCC courses in AFA, I feel like a person, which gained a lot of knowledge and feels stronger in difficult situations while flying. I recommend MCC courses organized by „Aviacom Flight Academy“ (AFA) to everybody.
