THE TRAINING PROGRAMME
Commercial Pilots Licence And ‘Frozen’ Atpl
The training programme is wholly sponsored by Malaysia Airlines.
All cadet pilots will have to repay the cost of training through
monthly deductions over a period of fifteen years commencing from
the time they are employed as Second Officers. In addition, all
cadet pilots have to sign a training bond.
The training will be conducted at the Malaysian Flying Academy in
Melaka, or any other flying training colleges approved by the
Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation (MDCA). Prior to leaving,
cadet pilots will undergo an induction programme designed to
prepare them for what is expected of them throughout their
training. The programme will also offer them a brief introduction
to Malaysia Airlines.
Phase 1: This phase takes approximately 60 weeks and consists of
1. Ground school curriculum of approximately 920 hours of
classroom time, where cadet pilots will learn:
Basic aeronautical knowledge comprising of Theory of Flights,
Engines, Airframe and Systems, Electric, Ail Law, and
Radiotelephony Theory and Practical - and are required to pass
the Private Pilot Licence and the MDCA Technical Examinations.
Flight Planning, Instruments, Meteorology Theory, Meteorology
Practical, Navigation, and Radio Aids - and are required to pass
the UK Overseas Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Airline Transport
Pilots' Licence (ATPL) Examinations.
Performance A, Loading, and Human Performance and Limitation -
and are required to pass the UK Overseas Civil Aviation Authority
The passing mark for all tests is 75%
2. Flight training that covers 200 aeroplane hours and 30 hours
in a flight simulator. The 200 aeroplane hours will see each
cadet flying the single-engine Piper Warrior for 165 hours of
basic flying, instrument flight and navigation training and then
the twin-engine Piper Seneca III for 35 hours of flight training.
Cadet pilots who complete this phase successfully will graduate
with a Malaysian Commercial Pilots' Licence with Instrument
Rating, and a Frozen Airline Transport Pilots' Licence. Our
stringent standards have resulted in an integrated programme that
provides cadet pilots with a solid foundation in both ground
subjects and flying.
Phase 2: In this phase, all successful cadets are first subject
to the Promotion and Selection Board, which will post cadets to
fly either F50s or B737s, depending on their performance whilst
in flying school and the availability of vacancies in the fleet.
Cadets then enter an induction programme, which includes Crew
Resource Management, to equip them with the necessary skills to
be airline pilots. At the end of this programme, the cadets will
undergo technical training (basic jet course) and aircraft type
conversion. Aircraft type conversion comprises a computer-based
training (CBT) ground course, fixed-based and full flight
simulator work, aircraft endorsement and line-flying training.
Generally, this phase takes 6 to 9 months to complete. Upon
completion of the course, the cadet will become a Second Officer.
After training, the cadets join Malaysia Airlines as full-fledged
co-pilots holding the rank of Second Officers on either F50s or
B737s. A typical career path will see a Second Officer begin as
an F50 co-pilot, then a Boeing B737 co-pilot and becoming an
Airbus A330, Boeing B777 or B747 co-pilot before returning to the
F50 or B737 as Captain. This growth process from co-pilot to
Captain usually takes 8 years, depending on vacancy, seniority
and suitability (performance).
Pilots with suitability can also move into training captain and
managerial positions whilst flying actively. Candidates for
training captain and managerial appointments are selected from
the line captains.
A pilot's typical job scope includes pre-flight briefing and
preparation. A pilot has to examine the flight's routing, the
expected weather pattern and the amount of fuel needed for the
flight. Once airborne, he has to manage his resources (primarily
fuel), his crew (both technical and cabin) and the flight itself,
taking the aircraft safely to its destination as it flies through
different situations and environmental conditions while
constantly considering the safety and comfort of the passengers,
punctuality and economy.
Kindly submit your application together with a detailed resume,
certified true copies of certificates, academic transcripts,
identification card, recent address, contact telephone number(s)
and a recent colour passport-sized photograph (n.r.) to the
address below. Please indicate the position and position code
you are applying for on the top left corner of the envelope.
