Top 5 Tips - AQC

by Azimah PgA on Feb 18 2019
Hi, my name is Azimah and I have just completed AQC at L3 Airline Academy in Southampton. This was my first experience of a multi-crew environment, not least a jet aircraft! Here are my top 5 tips for AQC (MCC):

1) Study
From day 1. The more you are familiar with the AQC manual, and what is expected of you, the better.

2) Sleep
However, don’t forget to rest and have enough sleep. Yes, your body clock will be all over the place, but your body needs sufficient rest in order to perform at a high level.

3) Try not to skip meals
It will be hard to get a proper meal in with the odd sim times, but you’ll realise the difference in your performance if you jump in the sim with a happy tummy vs. when you’re hungry.

4) Move on
If you had a bad sim, don’t dwell on it. Move on, and nail it next time.

5) Enjoy it
It is an intense 3 weeks and can feel overwhelming at times. Be prepared as best as possible, have fun and enjoy it! It’s what you have trained to do.
