easyJet 2016

The easyJet 2016 cadet program will be here shortly with CTC.

In the event that the program were to open with CTC and CAE at the same time, does anyone know whether one can apply for both without getting automatically eliminated?

In addition to this, any tips to help us pass the exams would be very welcome

Do you think that if I personally wrote a letter to EasyJet they'd perhaps consider accepting my predicted grades instead of actual grades of BC?
Since otherwise I'd just miss out on the scheme.

Hi What is the cadet scheme? Is it similar to the BA FPP where they'll guarantor the loans?

Thanks for that! I had no idea. What's the 'training bond sponsorship'? Does that mean someone else will underwrite the loan for candidates?

You can try but I don't think they will let you. In any case, the training is offered by CTC and they strictly do not accept predicted grades. What you could do is finish your exams and wait for easy jet to open next year (they open every year) or wait for any other program that opens after your exam results. Good luck!

I am assuming that Easyjet MPL will open with CTC and Oxford. CTC clearly stated a security bond of £69k whereas at Oxford didn't. The later only stated the global amount around €100k. Does that mean that with CTC is cheaper???

In your opinion where shall we apply CTC or Oxford?

Unfortunately EasyJet is very clear on the issue of predicted grades,therefore I wouldn't attempt to convince them. What would be the point of them setting those entry requirements?

The scheme that is launching tomorrow is run by CTC and is a far better deal than the scheme run by OAA. This is because the training bond you place with the airline will be refunded to you over the first few years of employment. You will have to come up with the funds yourself or via the BBVA loan though :/.

Having trawled through the info on the MPL I am still not entirely sure of the exact details of the bond with CTC. They set out the costs of the Security Bond of 69000 and then 2 MPL training fees of approx 20000 each. In the sponsorship section however they state that they will repay the Training Bond over the first 7 years of employment. Is the training bond the same as the security bond (ie 69000) or a different amount? Hopefully someone can shed some light on the matter for me. Thanks!

Good luck to those applying this year.

Looks like Oxford are giving more details about the pay on the European contract on their website this year. Allegedly 21 out of 24 of last years intake (Ie started at Oxford in 2013) were sent to a European base and earn either a salary of 35'000 euros or 48 euros per hour. When you factor in the local taxes and exchange rate, this only leaves a few hundred pounds per month for accommodation and living expenses once your loan is paid. Last year ctc offered a guaranteed UK base.

The mpl is about 25k Gbp cheaper than a standard white tail frozen atpl plus cae easyjet type rating.

The training at Oxford has been very good so far and we are all making good progress towards our license issue.

Not if you meet the A-level requirements.

It says the max height is 6ft 3 then elaborates to "Applicants for CTC WINGS should be between 1.58 m (5ft 2 inches) to 1.91 m (6ft 3 inches) in height. Applicants who fall outside of this may still apply for CTC WINGS; however will be required to undergo an ergonomic assessment in our training aircraft and jet flight simulators prior to being accepted onto a CTC WINGS ab initio training course."

That's not too helpful regarding the EasyJet MPL as its not a Wings course as such and I'm 6ft 4 so am I going to get an instant rejection?

Does anyone know whether the CTC Easyjet MPL application involves any initial online essay questions?

Is anyone else completing the application form and when you are entering the schools/colleges and employment details they are not going in chronological order no matter what you do?

Tried different methods and still ends up in reverse chronological. Suggestions?

I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of info on the CTC site, for example i'm still left asking:

1. At what point am I employed by EZY? In previous years you were employed by CTC Flexicrew for approximately a year until you were given the opportunity to apply for a full time position.

2.If Flexicrew is still the route, is there an hours guarantee over winter months?

3. Is there a guarantee of a UK base?

4. How is the "Security Bond" repaid? Is it as a lump sum on top of the standard EZY FO salary or is there a salary sacrifice?

Im quite tempted by this scheme having know a couple of guys who have gone through in previous years. But realistically you are stumping up £120k for this scheme so i'd expect a bit more detail about the realities of paying that back.

Maybe I should hold out for the FPP

BVB I completely agree. CTC are pretty active on their Facebook posts though so if you want a quick answer head over to there.

3. Is there a guarantee of a UK base?

This is really important to a lot of people so not sure why they haven't given any info on it. With the OAA easy jet scheme just opened they state this:

"Upon successfully passing the Line Check at the end of Line Training the student will be contracted to fly with easyJet through CAE's resourcing division CAE Parc Aviation and could be assigned to any of easyJet’s operating bases in the UK, Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands, France, Italy or any other easyJet European base."

Not sure if CTC are the same though.

If you are employed at a European Base you don't get your security bond back! Be careful!

I'm a long time lurker of these forums.

Got a quick question regarding things like the easyjet MPL/BA FPP and the ilk.

Has anyone ever had any experience of applying with qualifications like HNC/HNDs as opposed to A-Levels? HND is meant to be a higher level than A-levels but im not sure if they're recognised.

Cheers
