Hour requirements for modular pilots.

As a low hour CPL holder who has been out of aviation for some years, Im considering a return to flying. I dream of becoming an airline pilot. My next task would be to get current and to embark on an MCC / APS course (any recommendations?). The major consideration that is holding me back is a seemingly lack of job opportunities for low hour pilots. Would the average modular pilot be crazy to embark on an MCC course without 500+ hours under his belt or is the market such that there are a few schemes and opportunities for someone in my position? Im hoping for some candid and impartial advice.

Thanks as always.

The MCC course is standard right after the CPL and ME-IR course.
​​​​​​Many modular pilots got their first job at 200 hours. Myself included.

Are you a CPL holder without an IR? If so you'd need to complete your MEP/IR in order to be considered for an airline.

Also some MCC/APS providers require IR on your licence before you carry out the training.

All the best

You asked a similar question on 4 August; I gave an answer the following day?

If you have an absolute passion about flying, a real desire to succeed, then just get on with it.
If you are having any doubts, which would be perfectly understandable, given the time & effort involved in regaining competency at CPL/IR level, perhaps start with just PPL flying and see how it goes.
