Based on what I've seen, 80%+ of self sponsored guys at FTE are getting airline jobs within a year of leaving. FlyBe and Aer Lingus have actually been coming to FTE to interview self sponsored guys, and Vueling have asked the school for guys to interview.

I imagine it's a combination of FTE actively trying to get people jobs as well as the airline industry's demand for pilots at the moment.

I was speaking to one of their advisors last week. He informed me that, out of the last 180 cadets, 161 have been able to land jobs.

Hey all! Thought I'd post in this thread instead of starting a new thread on the same subject.

But to the point, I'm looking to start a course in June/July this year and I hope any current students or graduates would be able to tell us what the employment outlook is looking like at present for students at the school?

I know EZY and Norwegian have taken grads recently. Although I've seen a lot of guys on LinkedIn still looking for jobs quite a while after graduating. Good luck

I attended the last graduation, and I believe only one person out of those graduating did not have an airline job at that point. I believe he may have been offered one since then. Whatever the actual statistics are, I would actually guess it's higher than 80% are being placed into jobs. EasyJet, Norwegian, Aer Lingus, Vueling, FlyBe and Thomas Cook actively recruit here (maybe I'm missing some?)...

Placed, or do they have to move their arses and find that job for themselves ?
Does this include modular students ?

They are recommended by the school to the airlines, who then interview the candidates. So obviously, the interview must be passed by the candidate, but the arrangement of that interview is done by the school. A recommendation in itself is not an automatic contract of employment, but a foot in the door that you would not otherwise open quite so easily.

As for modular, I cannot comment, as I do not know - sorry.

Hi all, see some of you were wondering about modular people. I have some people I know who know modular graduates from there and they've got jobs with aer lingus and thomas cook apparently.

Also know a recent FTE grad. All people in his class, integrated and modular, had jobs before they left.

Strange how everyone of your 7 posts are just putting down others who are paying for their own Type Rating. Perhaps you need to find a hobby?

Either way, would love to see where you got 40,000 GBP figure from? That's nearly €48,000. Bizarre.

I think it would be better to find a hobby for all those who pay for their TR. They are not aviators. They are looking for "likes" and comments on ther "success stories" and nice photos in social networks. But talented guys who really love aviations struggling because all those (sometimes really stupid and lazy) guys already paid and take their seats. Do not change real things by this fake that you have to pay for your TR and LT! When everybody STOP pay to fly - everything will be good!

Thank you for attention.

Yeah it pisses me off when I see those insta-kids sharing pictures of them doing a type rating when daddy paid nearly 150 000 Pounds for the entire training and TR.

Information that is not accurate, that's the bizarre part. 170 still doesn't tot up to 40k for the TR alone.

So all people in the whole world who pay for a TR are looking for likes and comments? There's not a single place on my social media where I've posted pictures or comments about what I'm doing, and I see no reason to. Perhaps, rather than generalise, you attempt to alleviate the source of your personal aggravations with somebody.

And ending pay to fly, that'd be a great thing. I'd be fully in support of that. The reality is however, it's here now, and that's all that's here for those looking to gain some security in placement.
