CESSNA CITATION C525 TYPE RATING

Please find below more information about typeratings and MCC - trainings

C525 Typerating multi pilot operation (MPO)

An MPO - rating is needed, if you consider a commercial operation in a multicrew cockpit. You will do the skilltest as a PIC or F/O MPO and it will be entered in your licence respectively.

  • Theoretical training
    • 41 hours of theoretical training/aircraft system knowledge in virtual classroom
    • 2 hours avionics training
    • Written exam in real classroom
  • Practical training
    • 8 simulator sessions of 4 hours (32 hours total)
    • 16 hours pilot flying (PF), 16 hours pilot monitoring (PM)
  • Skill test
    • 4 hours on simulator
Prerequesites
  • EASA CPL(A) or ATPL(A)
  • ATPL(A) theory or HPA (High Performance Aircraft) course
  • A valid IR/ME
  • A valid medical certificate
  • Total time: Minimum 200 hours (min 70 hours PIC)
  • MCC (Multi-crew coordination)
  • Advanced UPRT

C525 Typerating single pilot operation (SPO)

An SPO - rating is needed, if you consider a private operation in a single pilot cockpit. You will do the skilltest as a PIC SPO and it will be entered in your licence respectively.

Course layout
  • Theoretical training
    • 41 hours of theoretical training/aircraft system knowledge in virtual classroom
    • 2 hours avionics training
    • Written exam in real classroom

    • 4 simulator sessions of 4 hours (16 hours total) as PF
  • Skill test
    • 2 hours on simulator
Prerequesites

  • ATPL(A) theory or HPA (High Performance Aircraft) course
  • A valid IR/ME
  • A valid medical certificate
  • Total time: Minimum 500 hours (min 70 hours PIC)
  • MCC (Multi-crew coordination)
  • Advanced UPRT Course

C525 Recurrent

A recurrent is needed if you have to do a revalidation or a recurrent.

According to EASA FCL the required training depends strongly on the following factors:
  • If the rating is still valid, you will basically need a revalidation
  • If the rating is expired, you will basically need a renewal
  • Your experience in general and on type is a factor, which determines your training needs

Multi Crew Coordination (MCC)

MCC is a basic requirement to act as a pilot in a MPO - operation. The training must be completed before beginning any MPO - training. MCC is not type related and it must be fully completed once in your pilot career. In theory and with training aids, the crew cooperation will be trained according to international airline standards.

Course layout
  • Theoretical training
    • 31 hours of ground training
  • Practical training
    • 20 hours of simulator
Prerequesites
  • EASA CPL(A), ATPL(A)
  • A valid IR/ME
  • A valid medical certificate
