Working together

Multi-crew Co-operation (MCC) training assists pilots to work together in a cockpit to achieve goals in a safe and effective manner. It also provides guidance on how to develop a set of multi-crew procedures applicable to the operation in question.


Henley Air’s course material is developed and presented in conjunction with a Professor of Behavioural Psychology and is customised to multi-crew operations in a helicopter-specific environment. The course includes theoretical instruction and simulated flight time in our MCC-approved flight simulator, and can be adjusted to suit any operation.

Description of our Multi-Crew Co-operation Training

Looking to enhance your skills in a multi-crew working environment? Want to obtain your multi-engine helicopter rating at the same time? Join us to qualify for both. Our MCC training program focuses on developing non-technical skills that are crucial for working effectively in a multi-crew environment. Whether you're the pilot-in-command (PIC) or the co-pilot, this training ensures that both individuals can operate seamlessly together. MCC training is a mandatory requirement for piloting an aircraft in a multi-crew operation. It plays an essential role in obtaining a multi-crew pilot license and an ATPL(H) certification. Even holders of a private pilot license helicopter (PPL(H)) or commercial pilot license helicopter (CPL(H)) must complete MCC training to be authorized for multi-crew operations. This training guarantees that they are competent in fulfilling their respective duties as a PIC or co-pilot, whether they're actively flying or monitoring the aircraft.
