Atlantic airlines sponsorship with muliflight

Hey guys,
I'm currently undertaking my private pilots license and have seen Atlantic airlines
Offer sponsorships VIA multiflight. I am considering putting in an application when I complete my ppl. Has anyone applied or actually been on the course? Any info or advice would be great! Cheers.

I thought this scheme looked great -and I still believe it is for the lucky few- but I went off and invested in a Class 1 etc etc, applied and was very much ready to go. A year later, two weeks ago in fact, I received a letter (name misspelt) telling me I hadn't been selected, for reasons unspecified.
I respect that they undoubtedly receive a lot of applications, and that it might not be feasible to offer every applicant detailed feedback. This does seem rather disrespectful though, to somebody who would have been delighted to devote their entire lives for the next few years to the company.

No, I wasn't interviewed- I gather they've had at least one round of interviews since I applied but was never invited.

I don't think it really matters about your experience level so long as you meet the published minimums that they set out. What they will be looking for are people that are happy to earn next to nothing for the foreseeable future, live in cheap digs, work weekends with very little leave, have a valid driving licence (to position crews and run errands) etc etc. Generally a dogs body. If your CV or covering letter (if they asked for one) doesn't portray those attributes then why would they call you forward for interview?

Hey Shaun....they wrote back. Very, very few people do that these days. Appreciate you are disappointed but if you want to a fuggly you would have to get used to taking lots of little knocks and a few big ones.

Best of luck though........

I sent my application in a few months back. I received a letter from Atlantic about 3 weeks ago stating that I have passed the initial selection and to await the next intake date. I still havnt heard back from Atlantic with a specifc date. Has anyone else recieved a date yet?

I can't see your credit rating being a problem, it wasn't for the last intake. How can a 18/19 yr old get a good credit rating anyway?

If I remember rightly, in the "good old days" the cadets weren't paid anywhere near minimum wage as they are today, nor did they have structured weeks/hours.

You are right though, it looks to be a long road from starting as a cadet to RHS. I also heard that some cadets left (not sacked) and are going through courts. Just shows you the decisions we make can take us on a completely different path, I hear the guys that stayed are first officers now. Who made the better decision?

I will be there...and will be good to find out a little more about the scheme as there seems to be a lot of negative comments on here.

Only 4 cadets? Gonna be pretty stiff competition then, and I won't have flown for about 3 months by the time September comes around.....would it be worth getting in a lesson anyone think?
