The AirlineReady MCC+JOC is an investment in your career as an airline pilot.
The AirlineReady™ MCC+JOC is a premium course developed to provide the most comprehensive possible preparation for airline employment.
It's also the only MCC+JOC in the UK to be delivered on a Boeing 737-800 simulator.
Over the last 18 years, Virtual Aviation has helped thousands of pilots secure their first airline jobs, so we have unrivalled knowledge and experience of exactly what airlines are looking for.
What makes this course right for you?
The right aircraft type
We don't believe in using a generic jet simulator. Our Multi Crew Course is run on the glass cockpit Boeing 737-800, which also happens to be the aircraft type most commonly used by airlines for simulator assessments.
With small class sizes and no more than two students per instructor, our instructors have more time to focus on your individual performance and address any areas which need particular attention.
We only employ MCC and JOC instructors of the highest calibre, and they possess the necessary experience and knowledge to help you develop your skills towards becoming a competent pilot of a multi-crew jet aircraft.
This course will give you more than just a qualification. The B737-800 handling experience will serve as excellent preparation for a simulator assessment and the steep learning curve of undergoing type rating training.
Intensive and focused
We designed this intensive course to include the most relevant content and optimum amount of classroom and simulator training. You will be surprised how rapidly your jet handling performance develops over the twelve days.
Proven track record
Virtual Aviation is a leading provider of specialist simulator training and we have helped many hundreds of commercial pilots secure their first airline position in the 18 years since the company was formed in 1997.

The course lasts 14 days in total. You will need to arrive in Cambridge the day before the course starts, and stay for 16 nights.
Theoretical Knowledge Instruction
The groundschool phase includes 25 hours classroom training over 3 days.
After the groundschool phase, students will have a day off before starting simulator training.
There are regular breaks during each classroom day, and refreshments are provided free of charge. Students will also have access to the airside staff restaurant at the airport.
Flight Simulator Training
The simulator training phase currently includes a total of 32 hours simulator training over the remaining 11 days, which includes study/rest days.
Simulator training days begin with a 1hr briefing, followed by a 4hr simulator detail and then a 1hr de-briefing.
As the simulator training days last 6hrs you will have plenty of time for self-study, as well as time to relax and enjoy your stay in Cambridge, or visit London.
