What is the APS-MCC? (Click here for more info) APS MCC FAQs

The APS-MCC is an efficient and effective course that is the tailor made link between the initial pilot training and the challenging operation in a commercial cockpit.

The Airline Pilot Standard MCC in accordance with EASA AMC2 FCL.735.A will develop all the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to help you fit easily into an airline career. Statistics show that over 50% of newly qualified pilots who hold a CPL, frozen ATPL theoretical exams, ME/IR and a standard MCC fail at European operator initial assessments. The APS MCC will give you every chance of passing an assessment!

Cadets who enter the mentored APS MCC with SKY4u will get an unbelievable opportunity to train with Ryanair approved procedures, SOPs and instructors in Berlin.
