Alteon Launches World's First Multi-Crew Pilot License Beta Test

Brisbane: Alteon Training, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company announced today the launch of its Multi-Crew Pilot License (MPL) beta test in Brisbane, Australia.
MPL is a new pilot license developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as an alternative to the traditional approach of training and licensing pilots. It is designed specifically to prepare pilots for their job at an airline. This competency-based training program prepares pilots more effectively and efficiently through increased use of modern simulation and crew based training.
Alteon has been working closely with ICAO, airlines and industry partners to be the first to test this solution that will help address the industry’s need for more pilots.
“The world’s airlines will need more than 17,000 pilots each year for the next twenty years to fill the seats of the airplanes on order,” said Marsha Bell, Alteon vice president of First Officer Programs. “The world needs a better training solution for those pilots. Our beta test will explore efficient and effective improvements in pilot training.”
Alteon currently offers training services at nine locations in the Asia-Pacific region, including Brisbane and Melbourne, Australia, Seoul and Gimpo, South Korea; Kunming and Tianjin, China, Tokyo, Japan, Singapore and Mumbai, India.
