Why do RSAF Pilots need the Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC) course?


Multi-Crew Cooperation course is a course to teach single cockpit pilots the skills necessary to operate in a multi-crew cockpit. And it has been a requirement for years for RSAF Fighter Pilots to undergo the MCC before Type Rating. In our earlier article, we revealed that the MCC is roughly SGD $15,000 and is separate from the Type Rating.

So, why do you need the MCC?

Who say must do MCC one?

To be clear, the need for MCC hasn’t been documented anywhere in the ANO and the SASP. However, for the submission of the CAAS FC02 (a form that you need to submit for validation of your foreign licence), it is a requirement that the airline submits a “Training programme proposed by the air operator or aviation organisation” supporting document.

And based on a well-established precedence, the application would not be approved unless MCC is proposed to be part of the overall training programme.

What kind of RSAF pilots needs to do the MCC?


So far, only fighter pilots are required to do the MCC. ALL fighter pilots, including the F-15SG and the F16D+ pilots, are required to undergo the MCC before undergoing type rating training. There has not been any precedence where F-15SG and F16D+ RSAF pilots have bene exempted from the need to undergo MCC training, and that is unlikely to change in the near future.

So, in the RSAF, only the Transport pilots and Helicopter Pilots do not need to undergo MCC training. They are aircrafts with shared cockpits, and hence it is assumed that the pilots are conversant with working in a Multi Crew environment.

How about the Apache pilots? I’ve yet to verify that, and this article will be updated in future. But if you are an Apache pilot that recently joined an airline, please reach out to me!
