interestingly no mention of maxmium age for cadets (well not officially) and also are they leaving the door open for guys who have already got their atpl exams and cpl/me/ir ? fingers crossed for this 38 year old guy with a 270 hour frozen atpl license.

I hope that guys in FTE Jerez are aware of the amount of applications that will fall on them in the nearest future...

OK, it took them 5 minutes to send me a rejection e-mail. Are they looking for ab-initio candidates?

Im ell,

Was it not rather obvious that it's a ab initio program?

Where are the entry requirements?
EDIT: Nevermind, they are on the FTE site, even though the FTE site clearly stated that the info is on the EI website.

EZY_FR,

they are not published, but may be derived from the application form:

18 before or at 1 Jan 2015
EU Citizen,
Medically fit,
Some flying experience, but w/o a license (based on my turbo-quick rejection e-mail)
Willing to pay 25 000 Euros for the training

PeppyJeppy, I would e-mail to confirm, it might have been a technical error. It's definitely specific to ab-initio from what I've read. A link is given to the Aer lingus "cadet" pilot page and there it is stated it is for those with little or no flying experience, anything more is direct entry in EI terms.

Re. Educational Requirements

Educational criteria:
You must hold a Leaving Certificate or equivalent with a minimum of 6 subjects which must include the following:
English and Mathematics minimum grade C in ordinary level
Plus Two higher level subjects at a minimum grade C
Source; FTEJerez

For a UK Citizen, does the, 'English and Mathematics minimum grade C in ordinary level' refer to GCSE?'s
Also, 'Plus Two higher level subjects at a minimum grade C' Does this refer to A Level Grades?

Regards.

I don't think so guys. Your GCSE would be equivalent to our Junior Cert. Your A levels would be more equivalent to our Leaving Cert. So I would suspect for Uk guys that A levels would be required.

Number of subjects at leaving certificate or equivalents * = GCSE

Number of higher level subjects or equivalent with grade C or above * = A Level

Have you completed or are you currently studying towards a third level qualification? * = University

?

The Irish junior cert is the equivalent of the UK GCSE, The Irish Leaving Cert is the equivalent of UK A-levels.

EDIT: The Leaving cert varies, subjects taken at ordinary level are GCSE equivalent, higher is A-level

Well I'm just chancing the arm and applying really.

But on the form it does ask if you have a licence and gives the option to tick PPL/CPL/ATPL. It also asks if you have done any ATPL exams. Bit of an odd option to give if they only want effective zero hour guys.

Sure look I applied ticked the boxes and told the truth. Let them be the ones to tell me no.

"Bit of an odd option to give if they only want effective zero hour guys."

They want to see how far you've gone in, cpl/ir wouldn't be allowed as immelmann found out, whereas ppl or maybe some other small things maybe allowed.

"Sure look I applied ticked the boxes and told the truth. Let them be the ones to tell me no."

I didn't say you lied and I was only trying to help by saying to e-mail, calm down.

I'm quite calm. They ask if you have a licence and after you select yes it asks if it is PPL/CPL/ATPL. I ticked CPL. 2 other guys I know with CPLs(and one has an MEIR and 400+TT) also got the phase 2 email so it seems to be ok.

If they say no they say no...they probably will....I wont cry over it but until I hear no I'm happy enough
