VA Airline Training (VA) and Leading Edge Aviation have joined forces with a new airline pilot training partnership as well as simultaneously launched the first approved Airline Pilot Standards MCC course designed for the Airbus A320.

Graduates from Leading Edge Integrated and Modular courses will progress seamlessly into training with VA each month to complete their APS MCC training course (either A320 or B737) and then onward into aircraft type training and airline employment.

This new partnership also comes at a time of significant firsts for VA:

  • VA launched the first approved APS MCC course in the UK in April 2018 for the B737NG.
  • APS training now celebrates its first year of enhanced MCC training with 145 graduates from VA alone.
  • VA now celebrates another pioneering milestone being the first ATO to deliver APS training on the A320 type.
  • The first Leading Edge CPL/IR graduates since the company launched operations earlier in the year will be the inaugural A320 APS MCC trainees at VA.
