Having looked at the BBVA bank loan document;

"Maximum loan amount is the full cost of your flight training course with an approved flight training organization plus up to 5,000 in living expenses."

As the MPL at OAA costs 100.5k, and the accommodation (should you choose it) is 9k, does that mean the maximum loan amount is 105.5k or 114.5k? Thanks.

I'd imagine that would include the cost of accommodation, but I'd double check with them just in case.

You'd imagine that includes a lot of costs, and yet it usually doesn't!

Enquire about accommodation, fuel surcharges, landing/take-off/approach fees (away from home base), CAA application fees, etc etc

I don't have any experience with CTC/OAA/etc, but a lot of these expensive integrated schools are NOT all inclusive. That's just a fact. BE INFORMED

Good morning!

I have another question regarding multitasking aptitude test. The level of examination in this area is medium or hard type?

The OAA/CTC/FTE courses include everything and to some extent or another performance protection. That's the one benefit of the fairly whacky price tags, you can pretty much forget about everything but the training as it is all taken care of for you.

Accommodation wise - 9,000 for OAA accommodation for c. 20 months is pretty reasonable in fairness. Check very carefully with regards the type rating accommodation, CTC don't include that for example and OAA may or may not as by that point you're not really training with the school but with easyJet, or at least thats a convenient excuse.

Whilst being informed is always good advice, integrated courses like the easyjet course etc have all landing and take off fees covered in the overall course cost.

How many tests are there at CAE (Stage 2)? And how long does each one of them last?

Extremely easy and basic verbal reasoning test at OAA (not worth worrying about at all really). CTC have no such test.

I am not sure how accurate information about the spaces left is. With all the respect to the person who shared this info I believe that rumors like that should not put people off as OAA has 8 days open for bookings in Dec and thats only for Stage 2.
We dont really know how many batches there are gonna be. They said the first batch will start early March and the last mid-summer.
Competition is high that's true. Good luck to everyone!

I totally agree. OAA as far as I'm aware are yet to assign x amount to route 1, y amount to route 2 etc etc. Indeed easyjet themselves are not 100% decided on how many individuals they want on each route, this was said to me quite recently directly from OAA.

Scaremongering, particularly of this nature, is not helpful as it can ruin people's confidence, and in some circumstances may even discourage people to follow through with what could well turn out to be a successful application.

We all have an equal chance, the time at which you applied has little baring is what's been said to me by OAA.

To put things in to perspective some people who got offered the MPL in Summer have already started ground school.

But I'm not sure this has a bearing on someone's chances of getting the MPL if they were to apply now. One such reason I believe this is because OAA for example only opened up for applications in September and nobody has yet to be assigned a particular route. CTC have their own scheme running independently of OAA and people starting on CTC already means very little to the prospects of those applying to OAA.

Hi guys, at stage 3 for oxford easyjet mpl, in contrast to ctc they don't give a breakdown of what happens where so wondering if anyone knows? I know it will be mpl theory first 6 months then single engine prop training i'm guessing in Arizona, then onto mpl training at oxford in a sim. If anyone could correct me on this that would be great.

Thanks
