AirAsia pilot cadets are to train under a new multi-crew pilot license (MPL) program to be run by Canadian company CAE. The 56-week program will start in March and should lead to the award of Transport Canada MPL licenses to the cadets. They will also gain authorization from the Department of Civil Aviation Malaysia before entering AirAsia’s initial operating experience program for Airbus A320 first officers.

The MPL’s core and basic phases will be conducted at Moncton Flight College in Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada, and the cadets will then move on to CAE SimuFlite in Dallas, Texas, in the U.S. Following this intermediate stage (“Phase 3”) they will complete their MPL training at CAE’s training center in Toronto, Canada.
