Flybe/FTE Mentored Airline Pilot Scheme (MAPS)

Hello,

It's my first post on PPRuNe, so I hope you will be lenient with me.

Perhaps I have to present myself : I am 34 year old, I am French, and I had this tremendous passion for planes !

My question is : did someone apply to Flybe/fte MAPS scheme few days ago ? If so, did you receive any answer, after having sent your 10 questions with due answers ?

Personally I applied and then received their ten questions : I sent back my answers last sunday, but I haven't received any response so far.

Is it normal ? Are you in the same case ?

Thank you for your answers, if you are concerned by the same sponsorship.

Hi there
The deadline was on the 27th for the FTE/Flybe phase 1 application, and it will take till today for the final answers for phase 2 to be emailed, as everyone is given 3 days to email back the answers, and obviously if one applied on Sunday, they wouldn't get the questions till the next day. So I would wait for at least a week for them to get back to you. They don't send confirmation of receiving the phase 2 answers, but they would have def have got them if you replied to the email. Good luck!!

I've applied too. Just waiting to hear now. I guess it will be next week before we hear anything.

Good luck to those who applied!

I rang them up last week sometime, maybe Tuesday, to ask when we could expect to hear anything. The lady on the phone said they would get in touch either Monday 4th or Tuesday 5th, so hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday, we should know.


Good luck!

It's OK for me !

Hi guys,

I received a positive response one hour ago : I can pursue their selection process and go to stage 3.

They have invited me to attend the assessment day on tuesday 12th August.

Does someone else have similar news ?

I hope so, and in such case, I will pleased to meet you.

Cyrano.

PS : I think the huge difficulty for me will be on the interview : as I am a Frenchie, I can speak English but not with your Sheakespeare's level !

Correction

Sorry for my mistake :

"I will be pleased to meet you" ans not "I will pleased..."

Cyrano,

I have had the same positive news. I have been informed to arrive for 8:45AM on the 12th so will be spending the night before somewhere close to the airport. I imagine you will be doing the same???

Good luck everyone, I hate the 'sitting, waiting, wishing' feeling too.

I also received an email today for the assessment in Exeter on the 14th August! Has anyone else heard back with this date? I'm just looking up B&B's for the night before!

Does anybody know how many people got through to this stage?
Goodluck to you guys on the 12th!

Bed and breakfast / Hotel

Hi Mlowe,

Congratulations !

If you already have booked a room in a good hotel, perhaps could you give me the name).

Indeed I want to book a bedroom in a quiet hotel, near the airport, in order to sleep well and a lot. I remember having taken one pilot selection in France without having enough slept, and I suffered a lot the day after.

So I am very demanding, concerning quiety and comfort for the hotel.

Did you find some interesting hotel ? If we find the same hotel, it could be fine to talk a bit before the tests, if you want.

I will try to find one, and I give you a feedback later on.

Cyrano.

The Holiday Inn Express at Exeter is a good place to stay. A short bus or taxi ride from the airport, and you might even meet some Flybe trainees - they sometimes stay there during groundschool.

See you all on the 12th at 0845 - I'm working a night flight to Paphos the same evening from Gatwick (currently Cabin Crew) so If you see me I will probably be the even more stressed one hoping he makes it to work in time (though If I am honest the Flybe intwerview is about a Gazillion (made up number I'm sure) more times important to me!)

Good luck to you all - looks like a busy schedule for the day but I'm sure we all want it enough!
