British Airways Cadet Programme



MPL route plan

 

The following route plan provides a detailed example of the training footprint for the British Airways MPL.

 

Basic Training

 

Theoretical knowledge training – Classroom and computer-based.
Approximately 26 weeks

 

Those selected to join the MPL option will transfer to this route immediately following the completion of Theoretical knowledge training.

 

Aircraft flight training – Single-engine piston aircraft
This is the flight training element of the core phase of the MPL syllabus that sets the MPL apart from a traditional flight training program. Flying the EFIS C172, the latest-generation Diamond and aerobatic aircraft, you'll learn the fundamentals of visual flying, basic instrument flying, night flying, and Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT).
Approximately 22 weeks

 

Multi-pilot flight training – A320 Jet simulator
Experiencing a multi-pilot environment for the first time, we introduce you to the A320 and jet operations for your instrument flight training using British Airways's SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures). An Initial Crew Resource Management (CRM) course covers Threat and Error Management training (TEM). The basic phase concludes with Line Orientated Flight Training (LOFT) and Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT).
Approximately 11 weeks

 

 

Intermediate training

 

Aircraft type-specific training – A320 Jet simulator
Type-technical ground school utilizes advanced CBT and Virtual Flight Deck (VFD) technology; we develop your advanced handling skills on our motion A320 simulators utilizing a more complete version of British Airways's SOPs. LOFT covers more complex scenarios, Threat and Error Management training (TEM) is further developed; you will complete the intermediate phase with Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT).
Approximately 7 weeks
