Professional Advancement Programs

Iceland Aviation Academy offers a variety of professional advancement program for pilots and flight instructors to renew and add to their licenses and ratings.

Multi Crew Co-Operation and Jet Orientation Course (MCC/JOC)

The Multi-Crew Cooperation Course (MCC) consists of at least 25 hours of theory and 20 hours of flight training in a simulator in addition to extensive self-study, online CBT and supplementary materials. The objectives with the training is for the student to learn how to cooperate in the airline environment while applying general and practical knowledge of aircraft operations and using all resources available to the crew in a line-oriented environment.

The transition from flying single pilot piston aircraft to a turbojet aircraft at higher speeds with far greater momentum and more advanced systems is challenging. Much of the Airline Transport Pilot theory has been up to this point untried and the course will recap some of the fundamental elements of flying a turbojet aircraft while putting it into the perspective of the multi-crew airline operation.

The Multi-Crew Cooperation and Jet Orientation Course is an intense learning environment that requires skilled and experienced instructors to create an effective learning. We are extremely proud to have put together an incredible team as all of our instructors have vast and varied experience as instructors and as airline pilot.

Upon satisfactory completion at the end of your course, you will be issued a Course Completion Certificate for the Jet Orientation Course and an EASA approved Course Completion Certificate for the Multi-Crew Cooperation which will enable you to move on to a multi crew type rating or start to apply for multi-crew career opportunities.

A valid CPL and ME/IR license is required for admission. If the student has completed the ME/IR skill test but is still waiting for license, the student may join the course providing a copy of the examiner report prior to start. A copy of the license is needed before a course completion certificate is issued. 


Rating Refresher and Renewal

In order to maintain skills and ratings, pilots must regularly meet certain requirements of flight license regulations. The Icelandic Aviation Academy offers training renewal, extention and revision of ratings. All training and rental is based on the current price list and unit price. Training provides for appropriate instruction and teaching materials as well as the rental of an appropriate aircraft for a proficiency or competency test with an examiner, but examination fees are not included. If a certificate is issued by an EASA member other than Iceland, the pilot must familiarize himself with all relevant training requirements and regulations, but in general the examiner must have been approved by the relevant Member State before applying for a competency or proficiency check.
