How to Evaluate an MCC Lesson
In this tutorial, I will show you how to evaluate an MCC Flight lesson.
Evaluating an MCC Flight lesson is done the same way as you would evaluate any other flight lesson with just a few extra details to consider.
Before proceeding, we recommend that you watch the tutorial, How to Evaluate a Flight Lesson.
Great. Now that you know how to evaluate a flight lesson, let me show you how to evaluate an MCC lesson.
The MCC or Multi-Crew Coordination flight considers two pilot roles, the Pilot Flying (PF), and the Pilot Monitoring (PM), as well as the MCC Instructor.
You can only evaluate one student per evaluation, this will be the student who is defined as the PF in the MCC lesson. So, to evaluate both roles as the PF and PM for one student, there must be two MCC flights with each student performing the two different roles and with the duration of each flight divided by half of the total MCC flight requirement.
Let me show you an example.
I have previously created two MCC Flight bookings in the schedule, with the same lesson. In the first booking, Silvia Bello is the Pilot Flying and Laura Simmons is the Pilot Monitoring. In the second booking, Laura Simmons is the Pilot Flying and Silvia Bello is the Pilot Monitoring.
In our syllabus, this MCC lesson takes into account both PF and PM times, so if the syllabus says the lesson takes 3 hours in total, each flight booking should be divided in half and take one and a half hours. This means the student will do 1.5 hours as PF and 1.5 hours as PM.
Now, I am going to check-in both bookings from the schedule. This will create the flights with all the information from the bookings.
NOTE: Alternatively, you can add the two flights as mentioned above, directly in the Flights Module.
Now, to evaluate the flights, you need to follow the next steps:
1. Go to the Flights Module.
2. Click on the three dots next to the first MCC Flight with the student you want to evaluate. Remember, this will be the student defined as Pilot Flying. In this case, I am selecting the flight with Silvia Bello as PF.
3. Click on “Evaluate flight”.
4. Evaluate the Pilot Flying in the first MCC flight. Leave the Pilot Monitoring section marked N/A.
5. Don’t forget to “Save”.
6. Click on the 3 dots next to the second flight. Here you will evaluate the Pilot Monitoring from the first MCC Flight. Leave the Pilot Flying section marked N/A. In this case, I am selecting the MCC flight with Laura Simmons defined as the PF. I will leave the PF section marked N/A and I am only evaluating the section of PM.
7. After you complete the second MCC flight, complete the evaluations by repeating the same steps. In this case, I am selecting the first MCC flight (with Silvia Bello as PF) and completing the PM section. Then I am selecting the second MCC flight (with Laura Simmons defined as the PF) and evaluating the PF section.
To sum up, you must have two flights with the roles of the students reversed and with the lesson time divided by half, and you will give the evaluation of both the PF and PM parts on the flight where the student is specified as PF.
