Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) Training Program

The MPL program is a relatively new program which is conducted in close cooperation with an airline and is an alternative approach to the traditional pilot training ATPL course.

The MPL program is specifically tailored to each an airline's requirements and needs by integrating the airline’s procedures from the beginning with a specific airline and aircraft training syllabus. Once completed, it allows a pilot to exercise the privileges of a co-pilot in a commercial air transportation on multi-crew aircraft.
