FSB - Flight School Berlin /MCC course

Hi everybody!

I am a few weeks away from MCC and have started to look at places who offers this. I am leaning towards doing it on a Fixed 737-sim to get a upper hand when it comes to potential future assessments but also see a point in doing it on a older, "clock based" sim such as the BE-200 offered by FSB.

1) Have anyone used FSB for their MCC, either on the B737 or the BE-200? If so, what are your thoughts?
2) Some people consider the MCC to be little more than three letters in your license. For those of you with jobs, would you consider this to be true or am I better prepared for a assesment if I've done it in a modern 737-environment?

Many thanks!

I did my MCC with FSB and was very satisfied with them. Instructors mainly from Germania and Air Berlin were quite nice!
My perception is that some people think they are suppose to learn to fly another aircraft during a MCC course. It is all about working together in a multi pilot environment and the BE-200 will do the job absolutely fine.
I am on the B737 now and a lot of my colleagues did a 737 MCC course and said it didn't help them in the assessment as they had to do refresh all the skills again before assessment. So unless you are super lucky and have an assessment straight after your finish MCC I would not worry to much about what type of aircraft you are flying during MCC course. I would rather focus on the school and quality of the instructors.

Best of luck !

I did my JOC with them. Had a good instructor from AeroLogic. Remained very content with the course and the school.
As mentioned above, no point to do the MCC on B373. I did mine on Be200 (not FSB) and eventually got the job on a turboprop.

How about the price for the MCC course at FSB (on the BE200) and the duration of the course. Can it be done in a week? Where did you guys stay, are there any affordable rooms in the vicinity and how did you get to the school, is a rental car required?

When I was there (2015), the MCC was 1680€ (BE200) and JOC 1050€ (B737). Duration was 8 days for MCC and 2 days for JOC.
They do provide accommodation on sight, at the airfield for 52€/night.
From Berlin took the train to Trebbin (4.20€ one way), then local bus is running till the Schönhagen airfield bus station (cca 1.80€) and then about 10 minutes walking till the school.

Thanks for the feedback maximus610! Was the JOC of any benefit as you applied for a job, or would you say not really necessary?

Unless you're applying for a company which requires JOC (ex. Wizzair). Otherwise is useless.
