MATS has approval from the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to conduct MCC activity under Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASR) Part 142 and 61 Manual of Standards (MOS) The approval certificate is now valid until June 2019.

Multi-Crew Co-Operation (MCC) for Pilots.

MCC Training is designed for PPL & CPL Licence holders to engage in Multi-crew Operations. This also includes CPL Licence holders who have completed all of the ATPL subjects and requiring the ATPL Licence. The ATPL Licence requires an ATPL flight test (multi-crew). MATS can assist with this requirement as well.

Two pilots will be paired to operate as a crew. MCC cannot be conducted with a single pilot. Therefore, a pilot seeking to engage with MCC for issue of the Certificate must have a “crew buddy”. If this is not possible MATS may (in some instances) be able to provide the other crew member but this will increase the price of the Course for the individual pilot.

The crew undergoing MCC Training must have a record of having completed a previous Human Factors Course. This will generally be the ATPL HF Course. Other courses may be acceptable.

Multi-Crew Co-Operation  Instructors (MCC)

An MCC Instructor must meet the minimum Part 61 requirements (61.1245) and complete the induction and training program as approved in the Part 142 Operators Training and Checking Manual to qualify as a CASA approved MCC Instructor.

Multi-Crew Instructors (MCI)

There is a distinct similarity between all forms of Multi-crew Instruction, when conducting Multi-crew Pilots Licence (MPL), Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC), Jet Orientation Course (JOC) and Jet or Turbo prop Transition Training. ICAO State Authorities mandate that MPL and MCC must be conducted by a Part 142 approved organization and meet the requirements of Part 61 Legislation.

JOC and Jet Transition training do not require approval from the State Authority and are generally conducted under the auspice of an Airline sponsored ab-initio training program. These courses may be a requirement by the Airline prior to a Type Rating. Generally, the Airline SOP’s will be used throughout the training.

MATS Multi-crew Instructors have extensive experience in all forms of MC Training including Type Rating.
