Guys and girls, from my understanding having spoken to many cadets, if you are still waiting after your phase 3 non-technical assessment day, then you are through and are waiting to hear back from easyJet as your file has been passed to them?

I really appreciate the comment, but I don't want to get my hopes up only to have them dashed! Having spoken to CTC, the application has been passed to easyjet and they are waiting to hear back from them. I guess just because ctc have passed the application on, doesn't necessarily mean it'll be successful.

Fingers crossed all currently waiting are successful

Is there a chance that easyJet are grouping some Stage 3 applicants from both CTC and OAA before sending out the results to people?

I've got mine on Thursday and then there are a few more 2 weeks after that. That's just a guess mind..

Any one else in the same boat as me?

Out of curiosity is that a response received after phase 2 or phase 3?

I guess this answer means, you cannot get though the route 1 of the program but still can be tagged by easyJet for the route 3 and then join easyJet function to your training results without any further assessment.
Just an assumption

Hi Goaround92 - I had the same response after my Phase 2 and they said that it just means I don't qualify for Route 1 & 2 but do qualify for Route 3. I believe for myself its based purely on the basis that I don't hold any A-Levels, only GCSEs, because my assessment day went quite well.


So with us Route 3 people, it means that if successful after Phase 3, we start the course with CTC on their Integrated ATPL Programme which will be geared towards easyJet's SOPs and after the 26 Weeks Ground School, if we're performing well we may be offered a placement with easyJet at that stage.


At the end of the course we'll hold a CPL License, whereas Route 1 and 2 people will hold a MPL License.


This was the information I gained from CTC themselves when I called them a couple months back.


My Phase 3 date is this Thursday coming on the 27th Oct.....MEGA NERVOUS

Thanks for the info jenna_aviatrix,

It's a bit annoying because after my technical day I checked my application and it said that I had passed. The email never came through though so when I rang CTC a week later they sent it again and this time it arrived and said that I'd been unsuccessful for the mpl but did enough to be considered for the atpl :-/ bit of a kick in the teeth.

Is there a big difference in a cpl and an mpl other than the fact that a mpl is set up for a specific airline, in this case Easyjet?

What happens if you don't get offered a placement with Easyjet after the 26 weeks of ground school? Could you end up paying circa 120k on the integrated atpl course to then end up with nothing to show for it if Easyjet don't want you?

Good luck for your phase 3 date coming up!

Differences between CPL and MPL have been widely discussed on PPRuNe basically MPL = flight training in ME aircraft then 6 months in a simulator training according to airline SOP's.

From what I can see this a great way for CTC to get more people through the back door into their whitetail route, if you fail to make the grade after ground school ( at a cost of 5-6K) they will most likely encourage you to complete your training (because they have such great links you're practically guaranteed a placement) at a cost of 95K plus expenses. You will then enter a holding pool that you may or may not drown in and don't forget that TR fee of 30-40K

Exercise great caution when making final decisions that involve that much money. Remember you are a customer they are sales men/women they will tell you what you want to hear (within reason) to get your money.

Last time I checked most pilots couldn't afford new Bentley's and RR's but CTC management can.

Personally mate I'd take the cpl over mpl if i had thr choice.

Something about these new improved "gen easyjet" route and methods says it's all a bit of a con if i'' honest.

You are getting more or less a very similar product for varying prices. Only with us mugs would they get away with this sort of robbery

But why Officer Kite?

With the easyJet MPL, you are:
1. paying less (as the A320 TR is included in the cost, whereas you would have to pay for it separately doing the iATPL route)
2) more likely to get a jet job at the end of training

The only real benefit of going along the more expensive iATPL route is that you'll have more choice of which airline to apply for once you finish training (however you'll have to go through the entire recruitment process for every airline you apply for).

A320ECAM, with the mpl you will be forever on the right side, you cant be upgraded to captain nor apply for other company because the mpl is addapted to the company in which you are being instructed so... You can figure out why is the other way better than the mpl.

Hi everyone,

I would like to know how candidates can practice for the computer based testings (ADAPT) held during Stage 2 of the selection process with CAE Oxford Aviation Academy. Do you know and recommend any online preparation software to practice before attending the assessment?

Many thanks in advance

You can convert the MPL to ATPL after 1500 hours. You won't be spending your career in the right hand seat.

Interesting. I have a friend who did a research paper on the MPL, and when it was done (last summer), there hadn't been any upgrades to the LHS from MPL route guys. Although I originally put this down to the MPL not being around that long, it would be interesting to know if there have been any upgrades since.

When you obtain the ATPL at 1500hrs do you still have the same opportunities as other conventional ATPL holders?

This isn't true I'm afraid. Airlines hire future Captain's for a start. There is plenty of factual information available on the MPL. I would recommend the BALPA website. In my opinion an evolution of the MPL type of competency based training will become the norm in the future.

Wrong. The days of it being 'airline specific' have gone.

1500 hours = ATPL.

Minimum hours for command is 3500 factored. By then any MPL cadet will have a full ATPL and will, of course, be able to upgrade. Why would any airline recruit people who will only sit in the RHS? You are all being recruited as future captains.

Also, MPL pilots with only 500 hours have moved from easyJet to BA. It is NOT airline specific. The airline simply needs to add MPL as an accepted licence type into their OMs.
