APS MCC – Airline Pilot Standards Multi Crew Cooperation


The Airline Pilot Standards Multi Crew Cooperation course (APS MCC) is a new enhanced, extended and optimized training developed by EASA in order to ensure that future trainees are able to meet the common high standard requirements demanded and needed by airlines seeking to incorporate into their fleet young aspiring pilots.

Upon completion of this APS MCC Course:

  • Students obtain an APS MCC course competition certificate in accordance with AMC2 FCL.735.A.
  • Students who complete the APS MCC course but which in the unlikely or unfortunate event do not reach the standard required are still awarded with the MCC course completion certificate.
