You can give them a call, they will then notify you once a date becomes available.

@Wrightflyer1 : same here! They will refund m because I finished more than 3 years ago and their client (EZY) want pilot that finished less than 3years ago.

I think I finally save that money because chances where extremely small when you see the amount of people called.

Training Requirement:

First series CPL*
First series IR*
Ideally no more than three ATPL subjects passed at second attempt

*Successful applicants must have completed their basic flying training (including CPL/IR) within 36 months of their easyJet AQC course start date. For this reason, due to the time requirements of the 2 stage selection process, we are unable to accept applications from those who completed this training more than 33 months ago. If you have a non-UK issued EASA licence which will require converting to a UK issued license, the training must have been completed no later than 30 months ago. You will be required to bring along proof of dates to selection

Guys this wasn't on the original posting. I've a screenshot from the 12th of January which only had the first series CPL and IR on it. My icloud is playing up at present otherwise I'd post it. Their email does also state that EasyJet had only advised them after the initial screening

Dear xxxxxxxx

You will recently have received an email inviting you to the next stage of selection for the above programme. We can see that you have booked onto this event on xxxxx. Unfortunately, we will be unable to fulfil this, as the airline has brought it to our attention that they require all applicants to have finished their basic licence flight training within the last 36 months.

We apologise for not highlighting this earlier, and I am sure this will be disappointing to you, but the criteria is set by the airline and as our client, we adhere to their wishes.

As a sign of good will, we are willing to refund your selection fee of 295.20. Please forward your Paypal receipt to us for reimbursement. We will also look to see if there are any other suitable programmes for you and will be in touch if we can progress you further. We would also encourage you to look at our website for any future programmes that you may be suitable for.

Kind Regards

CTC Aviation Selection

Also before this update they had a requirement of 2 A-levels C+ or a Uni degree and the usual 5 GCSEs but that's not the case anymore.

Hi,

I'm sorry for the people who have done their CPL more than 36 months ago.

I have a question, do you know if during the first day of the assessment they will ask you some ATPL theory questions?

Haha - love this post! You've hit the nail on the head. We need gender reassignment!

I've just noticed that they still haven't refunded the money yet. Management must've started to malfunction when they realised they had money being paid out to pilots rather than being received. Or maybe they're scrambling around to see if they can retain it for another 'New and improved' course called Route 4a for the most dedicated and determined pilots who trained during the downturn in aviation, when there were no pending opportunities and have kept current for the past 4/5 years.

Hello

Here is a copy paste of the questions I asked on the wrong topic

I now have questions about their route 4 (AQC and TR with CTC/EZY) : do they prefer CTC modular students ?
Do they plan on keeping it open for the foreseeable future ?

Is there any chance to join easyJet from a modular school (if so which one) without this route 4 ?

Would it be more generally advisable to choose the cheapest CPL+IRME and the most expensive MCC/JOC (outside of this route 4 programme)

Thanks

I wouldn't have thought so. I know of a couple of people who have already been accepted on to this course whom all came from other schools so you have a good chance if you meet the airline criteria.

The whole point of this route (at least on an internal mail to all at CTC) was to assist easyJet with meeting their high requirement of pilots - 800+ by end of 2018. It would appear that not even the number of Integrated courses wrapping up is enough to meet this quota.

The opening date I can't comment on.

If you are anywhere near CTC's Southampton Training Centre or can get there, I'd highly recommend a trip down to this weekends open day. easyJet is the guest partner airline and I'd imagine they'll be focusing on this route - given it's one they have open at CTC.

For anyone wondering how things go with Route 4, here goes a brief explanation:

Phase 1 Assessment
Got to Dibden Manor around 14:10 and met with some other candidates that were arriving at the time. We then handed our documents and were taken to a conference room where we had a briefing about CTC, easyJet and Route 4 itself.

Later on we were taken to the "Test Room". You can read more about the specific assessment technicalities on GBotley's blog which helped me a lot! There are different softwares and websites you can use to prepare for this, I would advise you to do so!

After the tests were complete, we came back to the "Living Room" and as soon as we got the "all clear" we went home. Results were sent via e-mail the next day and fortunately, I was in for Phase 2. Day 1 was quite short and really relaxed, even though it was all new for us.


Phase 2 Assessment
This day assessed 12 of us, 8 MPL and 4 R4 applicants.
(Sorry if I don't go into much detail for the next part but we were specifically asked not to reveal details in public as a way to make sure they would be able to assess new candidates by the same standards they assessed us and that it was fair for everybody.)
The day started with a briefing about the program, how everything was gonna go and about easyJet. This briefing was given both by CTC and easyJet personnel.
Later on had we a meeting with a CTC cadet, which was quite interesting as it allowed us to ask some questions and share some impressions about CTC seen from the student's point of view.
The assessment exercises took place right after this and were separated by lunch.

Overall I found both assessment days really nice, CTC and easyJet members made everything they could to relax us and make us comfortable, tried to explain everything we had doubts about, and promised to look up any possible details they were not sure about. In the end it is a new program and it's quite normal that some things might be different to other CTC programs so far.
Looking back I see absolutely no tricks whatsoever and I'm sure that most people can pass it as long as you put enough time and effort studying easyJet, CTC and the Route 4 concept. I am honestly thrilled to board the easyJet family and I can't wait to start my AQC.

I wish you all the best of luck!

Thanks a lot PFDriver. Just one question. I'm training on latestpilotjobs for the PIALPT, but in your PM you said "Skytest" vas the best. Do you think I really need to pay another 80 euros for SKytest or latestpilotjobs is good enough ? Thanks

As I told you before I didn't use LPJ but only SkyTest which I totally recommend. I heard that LPJ's maths questions were a bit closer to the ones we found on the real assessment, but I really can't give you my opinion as I've only used SkyTest.

As with anything else, it's up to each and everyone's pockets.
