Leading regional airline Loganair (LM/LOG) has unveiled a new pathway for aspiring commercial pilots to prepare them for joining a commercial airline.

In partnership with CRM Aviation Europe, the Airline Pilot Standard Multi-Crew Cooperation (APS MCC) is focused on teaching new pilots the necessary skills to work as part of a flight deck team, both technical and non-technical allowing them to adapt to an airline environment as a First Officer easily.

Graduates of the scheme will be given preference in Loganair’s airline assessment selection and access to a fast-track recruitment process with a sim assessment and HR interview at CRM Aviation Europe upon completion of the Loganair-mentored APS MCC course.

Jordan Jennings, flight crew recruiter at Loganair, said: “We are incredibly excited to introduce our first APS MCC training for aspiring commercial airline pilots.

“It has been tailored to those who hope to work for Loganair, which operates a unique and extraordinarily diverse network, from airports like London Heathrow to some of the country’s most remote airfields.

“This course will give incoming First Officers the chance to learn and develop key skills to make the transition from trainee to working at an airline much smoother. The experience that the team at CRM Aviation Europe brings in delivering courses like this has been invaluable, and we’re looking forward to welcoming our very first delegates this summer.”

The course will start with several days in the classroom, learning from experienced Loganair instructors and 40 hours of simulator sessions based on Loganair’s route network and embedding them in the airline’s commitment to the highest possible safety and customer service standards.

Pete Legg, head of training, CRM Aviation Europe, said: “We are delighted to partner with Loganair to deliver this very unique Loganair-mentored APS MCC Course, giving prospective First Officers an opportunity onto the flight deck of Loganair’s fleet of regional aircraft. Working with Loganair, we have developed a robust course, built around nine core competencies to ensure that all prospective First Officers are given the very best preparation for their career.”

How to apply

The Loganair mentored APS MCC training will be available to those who have completed their multi-engine instrument rating and commercial pilot’s licence. Bookings open on 13th May for the first course, which runs from 10-26 July 2024. Two more courses will also be available this year, with further dates set to be announced in May.
