Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, is partnering with CRM Aviation Europe to offer a brand-new Airline Pilot Standard Multi-Crew Cooperation (APS MCC) course.

The course provides new pilots with the necessary technical and non-technical skills and knowledge to ensure they can easily adapt to an airline environment as a First Officer.

Delegates will learn how to operate in a multi-crew environment but will also enhance handling skills working with realistic scenarios that have been designed to develop self-awareness, interpersonal and workload management skills.

The Loganair-mentored version offered in conjunction with CRM Aviation Europe has been developed using Loganair standard operating procedures (SOPs) and with oversight from the airline’s training team to ensure consistency and quality.

Graduates will be given preference during Loganair’s airline assessment selection and have the opportunity to access fast-track recruitment with a sim assessment and HR interview at CRM Aviation Europe.

Jordan Jennings, flight crew recruiter, Loganair, said, “We are incredibly excited to introduce our first APS MCC training for aspiring commercial airline pilots.

“It has been tailored to those who hope to work for Loganair, which operates a unique and extraordinarily diverse network, from airports like London Heathrow, to some of the country’s most remote airfields.

“This course will give incoming First Officers the chance to learn and develop key skills to make the transition from trainee to working at an airline much smoother.”

Trainees will start their course with several days in the classroom, learning from experienced Loganair instructors. Next, they will undertake 40 hours of simulator sessions based on Loganair’s route network and embedding them in the airline’s commitment to the highest possible standards of safety and customer service.

They will also gain insight into what it is like working for the UK’s largest regional airline with a chance to discuss life in the Loganair flightdeck with pilots from the airline’s multiple bases.

Among the key non-technical competencies of the course are:

  • Problem-solving and decision-making
  • Situational awareness
  • Leadership and teamwork; communication
  • Workload management.

The Loganair mentored APS MCC training will be available to those who have completed their multi-engine instrument rating and commercial pilot’s licence. Bookings open on 13 May for the first course, which runs from 10-26 July 2024. Two more courses will also be available this year, with further dates set to be announced in May.

Full details can be found from Monday 13 May 2024 here.
