Canada’s Multi-crew Pilot Licence (MPL)

Significant changes in personnel licensing and training practices were adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and introduced into Annex 1 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation in 2006.

These involve the expanded use of simulation; the determination of more relevant training standards; and the creation of a new internationally recognized pilot licence called the Multi-crew Pilot Licence (MPL).

Canada was a key player in the review process that led to these initiatives and, accordingly, Transport Canada has introduced a new performance-based regulatory environment to facilitate MPL training.
