AQC / MCC upgrade course to achieve the APS MCC demanded by a growing number of commercial operators.

AQC to APS MCC Upgrade Course

Airline Qualification Course (AQC) to Airline Pilot Standard Multi-Crew Certification (APS MCC) Upgrade Course.

From our purpose built training facility and management centre in Gatwick, L3Harris Training Services delivers effective, competence-based training for professional pilots at any stage of their career ensuring the needs of the individual and the airline customer are supported through the provision of high-quality, professional training.

Our team is made up of experienced airline personnel with extensive operational and management experience in the training departments of major airlines and, in some cases, regulatory authorities.

As the aviation industry emerges from the impact of Covid-19, operators have commenced the recruitment of qualified crew and pilots to train in order to meet their planned growth in operations. As a newly qualified pilot, you will want to compete on even terms with those applying to airline pilot roles.

The cost of this course is: £1295.00 (excluding VAT).

Why undertake an AQC to APS MCC upgrade course?

Airlines are actively seeking qualified pilots who hold Airline Pilot Standards (APS) Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC) certificates, which are now required for applications to join a type rating course. Whilst MCC is still an acceptable route to achieve this, you may feel the APS MCC will give you an equal opportunity to apply for any advertised role.

L3Harris can now offer an Airline Qualification Course (AQC) / Multi-Crew Certification (MCC) upgrade course to achieve the APS MCC which is demanded by a growing number of commercial operators.

About the course

The cost of this course is: £1295.00 (excluding VAT).

The upgrade course will build on your MCC experience through a 1-day intensive Ground School course, followed by 8 hours of flight in our state of the art Fixed Based Flight Training Device.

Both of these will allow you to meet the requirements of the APS MCC.

Ground School will:

  • Update your knowledge on the regulatory requirements which govern the operations of a commercial airline
  • Enhance your threat and error management skills
  • Prepare you for the technical aspects of managing a modern jet

The 2-day simulator phase will include managing a Boeing 737 NG or Airbus A320 aircraft in a commercial setting, employing your competence to safely operate the aircraft during normal and non-normal operations. You and your simulator partner will work together to maintain safe operations and complete the APS assessment.
