Choosing your simulation partner is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make in your career. Here’s why Simtech is right for you.
If you’re considering your options for your flight simulation training partner, you’ve come to the right place. At Simtech Aviation, you’ll be learning from commercial and corporate aircrew and instructors with vast industry experience at a first-class training facility.
If the fact that we’ve already successfully provided training to more than 3,900 MCC/JOC students isn’t enough for you, take a look at these five convincing reasons why you’d be smart to choose our EASA approved MCC (Multi Crew Cooperation) and JOC (Jet Orientation) combined course.
#1: You’ll get excellent value for money (plus experience that you can’t put a price tag on)
This intensive course takes place over 10 consecutive days and offers 25 hours of ground school training and 28 hours of XJ Generic Fixed Based Simulator Training.
You’ll be able to focus exclusively on your training, knowing that everything else is taken care of. You won’t have to stress about finding or booking accommodation, organising transport – all Simtech courses are fully-inclusive packages with accommodation and shuttles taken care of.
#2: You’ll have access to top of the range simulators for an unparalleled education
Up until now you would have been trained to fly in a single crew environment. You’d have been responsible for every aspect of the operation of a flight from planning, pre-flight checking, flying, cockpit checks, radio work, descent and landing.
“With a large body of instructors who have a wide range of experience, Simtech is a great way to do your training”. – Pat Griffin
On our MCC course, you’ll take the skills you have learned thus far and adapt them to work in a multi-crew environment and you’ll learn the procedures used in everyday airline operations.
#3: You’ll learn under very experienced instructors (most of them pilots or ex-pilots themselves)
This combined course is conducted by highly-qualified EASA approved instructors. Every single one of the Simtech Aviation instructors has accumulated vast experience as Airline and Corporate Jet Pilots on many different aircraft types.
You will benefit from their immense experience when it comes to demonstrating particular scenarios, adding relevance and context to the concepts covered in the manual. You will be encouraged to participate in discussions as much as possible and to share your experiences with the class. There will be no cruising!
#4 Simtech is located in Dublin Ireland, one of the fastest growing aviation cities in the world
If you’re surprised that there’s more to Dublin than Guinness beer and whiskey (with an E!) you’ll be even more surprised to discover that it’s actually becoming an incredibly popular aviation destination in its own right.
#5 You’ll be employable. Very employable. In fact, more than 80% of our graduates find placement with leading airlines
We asked our Captain Mick Mellet about what the MCC/JOC course can do for an aviator’s career. Here is what he had to say:
“The MCC/JOC course is not a pass or fail course, so do not come to simply get through the 10-day course and collect MCC/JOC Certificate. The course at Simtech offers a huge opportunity to leave as a better and more experienced aviator. Make the very most of it. Learn from a vastly experienced bank of instructors. You are now in a crew environment – this in itself is a sharp learning curve, so embrace it. You’ll then be ready to apply for an airline job with the experience of having already adapted comfortably into a 2-Person operation.”
Simtech students enjoy a high employment success rate upon completion of our extensive MCC/JOC training and we regularly receive emails from recent graduates to inform us of their successful placement with commercial airlines. At Simtech Aviation, this is the difference: we’re here to help you reach your dreams. But before you start your MCC/JOC course, there are a few things Captain Colum Johnston wants you to know:
“This is a very challenging and valuable course that will prepare you for your upcoming assessment and type rating. You will only get the maximum benefit from it through your personal commitment to study and prepare for each lesson to ensure you learn as much as possible from the instruction.”
