Is a certain amount of multi-crew time logged at a Part 121 airline in the USA in an N-reg acceptable in lieu of a JAR MCC course? Or, like many things in JAR that do not transfer over from FAA, do I have to do the course anyway?
I have an FAA ATPL, and a JAR CPL ME IR, 2000 TT, 1600 PIC, but ZERO multi-crew. Next month I start a new job in the US flying a 33,000kg jet as FO, and one year from now I expect to have 900 hours "multi-crew" time logged and a type rating.
If my goal is to come back to Europe eventually, do I need to do the course anyway? Or will airlines/ corporate operators here accept logged multi-crew time and a type rating? If I do need the course anyway, I need to do it now before I start work because I won't have any vacation time later! So if anyone can please help me figure this out in a hurry
, let me know!! I don't want to waste 3500EU if its not necessary. Thanks.
