Virtual Aviation (VA) has launched its new AirlineReady APS MCC, which is the first APS MCC course in the UK to be approved by the Civil Aviation Authority.
On 8 December 2017, EASA published ED 2017/022/R which updates the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM) to Commission Regulation 1178/2011. This amendment introduces the new APS MCC which is designed to deliver enhanced MCC training to Airline Pilot Standards.
So, you've made it successfully through flight training, and have a commercial pilots licence in your hand. Now it's time to start applying to airlines.
Getting your application noticed is just the first of several hurdles now standing between you and your first airline job. And it's at this stage that so many aspiring airline pilots get stuck.
Virtual Aviation (VA) has placed an order with Multi Pilot Simulations (MPS) for a new 737-800 fixed based simulator, which will be installed in November this year. The agreement also includes an option for VA to buy a new A320 FTD1 simulator from MPS, for delivery in the first half of 2018.
The new equipment will enable VA to significantly expand its capacity and training capabilities.
Virtual Aviation and FTA have entered into a training partnership which will allow FTA's students to undertake the AirlineReady™ MCC+JOC with VA after completing their flying training.
