Frequently asked questions

  • What does CRM/MCC mean?

    These are two terms from manned aviation. CRM stands for Crew Resource Management and MCC means Multi Crew Cooperation. CRM focuses on communication, leadership and decision-making, among other things. MCC focuses extra on a larger flight crew in which cooperation takes place on the basis of multiple roles.

  • Why do I need to have completed the onlt theory training for the specific category first?

    CRM/MCC training only makes sense after you have completed the basic training in the specific category. At that moment you can start working as a pilot and you already have a reasonable basis to handle more complex operations in a larger flight crew.

  • How does the theoretical part work?

    After ordering, you will receive an account to start learning the modules CRM and MCC training aviation in our digital learning environment Online Learning. The online exam will also be ready for you.
