"If successful throughout the training at FTEJerez, and 1st Officer positions available, no further selection will be required by Flybe and you will flow straight into a Q400 type rating course as a part of the MPL training."

Sounds ever so slightly dodgy to me. It's almost like they're not sure if they'll actually be able to hire you at the end of the MPL.

I'd want that clarified before committing, but a good opportunity never the less.

All ab-initio programmes have a clause of that nature in the contract

I know, but it's unusual for it to be stated right there on the advertisement and brief details. I'll probably still be applying!

Does anybody knows when was the last MPL Flybe's selection like that through the past ?

Flybe do not want to make any commitment to you until they are sure you are of a reasonable standard, character and they have a job available for you, much like any business in any sector these days. It sucks, but thats the way it is. No company wants to go back to the days when they couldn't get rid of anyone who isn't needed/unfit for the job because of the severe retribution threatened by unions.

IMHO, this is why I suggest avoiding integrated schemes outside of fully or part sponsored schemes!

ALL cadet contracts have a clause like this, even the fully or part sponsored ones, it is standard employment practice.

I wouldn't read anything into it.

Did anyone get a confirmation email after applying for the Flybe programme?

Essay questions fine. Virtually identical to the BA Cityflyer ones with FTE a couple of months ago, and after spending 4 years in Uni, 500 words really isn't much at all.

Didn't get any mail, but check your account on the FTE website and you ll see the questions. It happened to me for BACF and Volotea too, should be a bug...
The application closes the 17th so I guess we ll here some knews from the 22nd
Let's hope to make a trip to Exeter

Anyone know the prospects of being a first officer for flybe (if successful) on the turboprop? I.e. salary, roster and ability to progress your career...

Not a bad scheme, unfortunately I don't own a home for the funding so I guess I'm all out of luck here?

Applied and got the essays to crack on with. Does anyone know whether you can use previous answers/similar from past applications? My greatest achievement, for example, hasn't changed.

I don't understand, what is the benefit of this when you have to fully fund the training yourself?

Why not just go to the flight school and apply on your own?

If successful you will have to fund FTE’s MPL programme.

The price for this course is GBP £89,100.

It's slightly cheaper than the normal ATPL route, considering the type rating is included in the price.

Also, while still not 100% guaranteed, it's a more secure way to be sure you'll have a job at the end.

Applying to a school as good as FTE directly is still a good way to go though!

It's mentored, so you will have a personal mentor from Flybe who will assist you throughout your training. I haven't looked at this one in detail but it sounds like your type rating is paid for.

Also, the Airline First Officer Programme at FTE will result in you gaining an fATPL, not an MPL.

Not heard anything yet. Can't remember how quick the turnaround was on the BACF/FTEJ scheme with regards to getting a Stage 3 date
