Mixed Fleet Flying

Aug 06, 2015


IFALPA does not support the use of pilots for flight operations which require Cross Crew Qualification (CCQ), Crew Qualification for Operation of one or more Type or Variant (CQOTV), or Mixed Fleet Flying (MFF). These operations present the pilot with variations in flight characteristics, cockpit layout, technology and procedures. Maintaining a high level of pilot competency under these circumstances becomes very challenging and can put an undesirable strain on the margin of safety.

IFALPA recognizes that some operators utilize CCQ/CQOTV/MFF to staff their cockpits. In such cases, specific considerations and restrictions should be applied with regard to training, operation and recency
