AlphaTech MCC Continuous Professional Development

Simulator training provider, AlphaTech who are based at Newtownards just outside Belfast have launched a new course aimed at supporting pilots who have completed their MCC course. MCC Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a block-hour heavily discounted development scheme that allows newly qualified pilots and in some cases experienced pilots to use the AlphaTech Airbus A320 Flight Simulator to keep their MCC, CRM and flying skills refined for the emerging pilot recruitment market of the future.

The company said: “MCC CPD is affordable, accessible and zero pressure, offering Pilots the opportunity to consolidate and strengthen their MCC skills, whilst also learning the techniques of flying and operating the Airbus A320. Furthermore it also demonstrates the commitment to potential employers of the pilot to develop their skills to strive for professional improvement and development.”

AlphaTech has an Airbus A320 FNPTII Standard Flight Simulator for Airline Simulator Assessment Preparation, Command Course Preparation and LPC/OPC Preparation at very low hourly rates. More details available at
