The Wings Alliance training route really stood out for me because it provided support throughout all of training. Training through the modular route without support or guidance would otherwise have been at times quite isolating.

It gave me reassurance of the quality of the training I would receive while maintaining plenty of choice of flight schools to suit my personal circumstances.

The APS-MCC course was professionally run throughout, with experienced airline pilots carrying out all of the training. The simulator used to complete the 40 hours of training was brand new and of superb quality. This, coupled with the team of knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructors, made each simulator session thoroughly enjoyable.

An interactive two days of airline preparation and the continued support in finding a job after the course, makes Wings Alliance a great choice for any aspiring pilot looking for a flexible path to a career in aviation. I would definitely recommend them.

Wings Alliance were crucial in helping secure my first job at Flybe after only 7 days after finishing flight training.

I truly believe the APS MCC that Wings Alliance offers is the best in the country, if not Europe and beyond. Not only are the instructors all pilots with years of experience over a vast selection of aircraft types, they, and the office staff, are incredibly professional and genuine people.

The transition from a single-pilot CPL/ME/IR holder to a first officer within the airlines is huge. The Wings Alliance course taught me fundamental skills that are not taught anywhere else through flight training, yet are expected when going through type-ratings for airlines.

The APS MCC is one of the most important parts of flight training, helping you to get that illusive first job. I would not be flying around Europe so soon after finishing flight training without Wings Alliance.

I chose to do my APS MCC through The Wings Alliance because I believe the course offered me the best training I could have received as a cadet. I thoroughly enjoyed the sim phase of the training and it really prepared me for what to expect during my type rating. The course develops pilot competencies and the sim phase really gives a good insight of how to use the skills daily as a pilot.

I chose modular training as I was able to work full time while completing my frozen ATPL, completing everything in the UK in two years and two months, costing £65,000. I think the enhanced MCC, although a higher cost is incredibly worth doing as it bridges the transition from flying single pilot to a multi crew type rating on a much larger aircraft. I got my first job seven weeks after finishing my Wings Alliance APS MCC and I could not be happier doing amazing flying every day, it’s a real dream come true.

I completed my APS MCC with Wings Alliance. Overall the assessment day, course structure and sim instruction was outstanding.

Post APS MCC, I applied to and was offered multiple assessment days with major European airlines within a few months of completing the APS MCC course.

The information given to me during the course with Wings Alliance greatly helped when it came to the assessment days with the airlines. Furthermore the sim instructors at Wings Alliance are current or ex airline pilots which helps as they teach you how the airlines expect multi crew operations to work.

I would highly recommend Wings Alliance to anyone who’s looking to take their first step into any multi-crew role.

Taking the modular training route, it can be quite common to feel like you are alone and unsure where to look for the advice and help you may need.

Wings Alliance really helped me to organise my modular training and looked after me every step of the way, making sure I was receiving top quality instruction and for a competitive price.

Having recently completed the Wings Alliance APS MCC, I can confidently say that the training is second to none. All the instructors are ex or current airline Captains and First Officers and bring a professional sense of realism to the training. This paired with the excellent Boeing 737-8 Max simulator sets the Wings Alliance course way above the rest. After the APS MCC, I feel 100% ready to walk into my first airline assessment with the skills and confidence required to succeed.

The course has been extremely well designed, has a fantastic selection of bespoke training materials, and takes you from a single-pilot CPL/IR holder to a confident and proficient Multi-Crew Pilot. The level of expertise displayed by the instructors (all of whom are current Captains / First Officers) was second to none and they were always reactive to our individual needs as learners.

If we wanted to cover a specific element in more depth or practice a particular manoeuvre, they made absolutely sure that we were confident in our own abilities before moving on to the next exercise, covering an array of theory and jet handling skills in tremendous detail.

The additional instruction in CRM, Multi-Crew Cooperation, Line-Oriented Flight Training and Airline Assessment Preparation on the APS MCC were hugely beneficial to my knowledge and skill-base.

The assessment process for the Wings Alliance APS MCC was very thorough, expertly crafted and comparable to actual airline interviews. The mix of group exercise, competency-based interviewing and individual problem solving was both challenging and enjoyable. It was obvious throughout the process I was being observed by assessors who were themselves highly experienced pilots and interviewers. The course and the robust assessment I underwent, confirmed to me I was doing a very high-quality APS MCC.

My experience on the APS MCC made my transition into Airline employment a natural and very enjoyable next step. I approached my airline assessments feeling confident and well prepared due to the training I received from Wings Alliance, and I felt at ease in both the interview room and the assessment simulator. Subsequently, I feel that I had a head start on my Type Rating, as many of the concepts taught on the Wings Alliance course are also central to the core competencies involved in flying the 737-800.

The ethos, quality of training and aftercare behind the Wings Alliance APS MCC is second to none, and I cannot recommend it enough.

In total I spent £61,000 on flight training from zero experience to my first job.

The Wings Alliance APS MCC provided me with industry-leading training. It equipped me with the relevant skills to pass airline selection and transition into my type rating. I was most impressed by the professionalism and dedication of the Wings Alliance staff, who provided me with support throughout my training and presented me with the pathway to clinch my dream job.

I believe the Wings Alliance modular route eradicates the advantages traditionally held by integrated schools by substantially reducing the financial burden, allowing flexibility in your training and possesses an excellent placement record. My total training cost was approximately £40,000.

I spent approximately £55,000 on my modular training.

The APS MCC course provides far more than a conventional MCC/JOC and gives you the valuable skills to not only ensure you pass your airline sim assessment, but to teach you the core skills which will set you up for the rest of your career.

The quality of the training is fantastic, you receive a well-structured package including one to one tuition and regular assessments. After already investing so much in my training, it made sense to choose the best option for the final part. I’m so glad I chose to do the Wings Alliance APS MCC course as I received offers from several airlines, passed my sim assessment and secured my dream airline job.
