Only 70 flight hours on an MPL, the rest in simulators. One MCC/APS operator was offering a state-of-the-art fixed base NG sim at 80 an hour dry recently. The margins in an MPL are huge, that's why...

Yes, the FAQ says 'can I be issued with', the answer says 'Yes' and then has the word 'validation' in it, which I think is new and for me confusing, older versions just said they would issue a UK...
