Multi-pilot Licence (MPL)

Multi-pilot Licence (MPL)

The Multi-pilot Licence (MPL) course is an alternative to the traditional Frozen Airline Transport Pilots licence (fATPL) program as it makes greater use of simulators, incorporates competency-based-training and further applies human factors and threat and error management.


Geared specifically to the airline and aircraft type, the course content focusses on developing the required skills and knowledge for the cadet to operate as an airline pilot in a modern multi-crew environment.


L3 CTS work closely with both our MPL airline partners and associated regulators to ensure that the course footprint meets all regulatory aspects. Each bespoke syllabus is based upon specific competencies, incorporating the airline's culture, fleet, and standard operating procedures from day one. Furthermore, the syllabus automatically includes a Type Rating and on successful completion, the cadet is then qualified to join the airline as a First Officer.


The four phases of the dedicated airline MPL program take between 14 and 17 months and can be much shorter than an ATPL program thus more cost-effective by spending less time in training and bringing the cadet pilot onto the line faster.
