The surging demand for pilots across the region has led the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) to announce a symposium about how airlines can implement a new type of pilot’s licence.
The Multi-Crew Pilot Licence (MPL) is a new qualification for co-pilots,which was established last Nov by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
The ICAO said the new licence was prompted by calls from the industry for better ways to train co-pilots amid evidence that deficits in team work between flight crew was a contributor to airline accidents.
AAPA will hold its symposium on 09-10 May in Kuala Lumpur, aiming to provide airlines and policymakers with a perspective on how the Asian aviation industry can implement MPL schemes, “at the same time enhancing flight safety standards to address the growing demand for more pilots in the region”.
