Pilot training with the Wings Alliance
Choosing where to undertake professional training is a big decision for any pilot. Hanna Kerr is a First Officer with Loganair and a graduate of the Wings Alliance. She tells us a little about her training experience.
Hanna chose to undertake her Airline Pilot Standards Multi-Crew Cooperation (APS MCC) course through the Wings Alliance as she believed it would offer her the best training she could receive as a cadet. She chose modular training, as it allowed her to work full-time while completing her frozen ATPL.
“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”.
Hanna completed her training in the UK in two years and two months, and landed her first job just seven weeks after finishing her APS MCC. She reports that “I could not be happier doing amazing flying every day, it’s a real dream come true”.
