According to Part-FCL, Multi-Crew Cooperation (MCC) is...
  • A
    a management system in which the flight crew makes optimum use of all the available resources both on ground and in the aircraft.
  • B
    the functioning of the flight crew as a team of cooperating members lead by the pilot-in-command.
  • C
    a method of avoiding undesired aircraft states by identifying and managing threats and errors.
  • D
    a management style where the pilot-in-command controls all the decisions and takes very few inputs from other crew members.
Note: This came as very incomplete feedback, so we have had to make some of the options up ourselves to fill in the gaps. Any further feedback would be gratefully received, thank you!

Part-FCL
  • "Multi-crew cooperation" (MCC) means the functioning of the flight crew as a team of cooperating members led by the pilot-in-command.

To go through the other options:

  • "a management system in which the flight crew makes optimum use of all the available resources both on ground and in the aircraft."
    • It looks like that this is describing CRM (Crew Resource Management), an important part of learning MCC (Multi-Crew Cooperation), but not the definition.
  • "the functioning of the flight crew as a team of cooperating members lead by the pilot-in-command."
    • Correct. This is the exact definition of MCC as shown above from Part-FCL.
  • "a method of avoiding undesired aircraft states by identifying and managing threats and errors."
    • This is one we made up to fill in the gap in feedback, it is a loose definition of threat and error management.
  • "a management style where the pilot-in-command controls all the decisions and takes very few inputs from other crew members."
    • Another one we made up, a definition of an autocratic leadership style in the cockpit.
