Thank you, much appreciated.

In short, yes it's provided alongside all of your contracts etc.

Payment wise, I couldn't possibly comment on what your own schedule would be like. MPL and airline courses vary considerably and payments amounts be larger in value per instalment albeit with less instalments overall. The payment schedule for my Whitetail course went something like this:
  • ~5k deposit with contract
  • ~5k 1 month prior to starting
  • ~24,800 Whitetail Foundation payment in month 5 paid to L3 Airline Academy.

Note, the bond payments of ~5,300 also started in month 5 and are paid until the balance of training is cleared. Bond payments are made out to the sponsoring body which is a separate legal entity altogether. I'm now 11 months into my course and a grand total of 78,000 indebted to various parties. It's an investment that shouldn't be taken lightly for that figure haunts me on the daily especially when BBVA are so kind to remind you of the interest in your monthly statement.

I hope that helps.

You'll find tons of info in here too:
easyJet 2017 Half Year Results

Think passenger numbers, think fleet expansion, think revenue per seat and the way they're driving down costs to increase it. I'd also look how it's fighting back on competition in key markets etc..etc. All of this is found at the second link. You want to show the team at the FTO/easyJet you've gone digging for treasure and not simply writing gibberish. Having worked in recruitment before it's obvious when it's' the latter.

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply. That's good to hear, I have an HND in engineering so I'm glad to hear that it won't be a problem.

Cheers

Not the best news

Received my email to say I hadn't met the criteria on group/interview for easyJet, I thought it had gone really well, can apply in 12 months again. Not sure what way to go now.

So sorry to hear that, it doesn't mean you won't meet the criteria next time. Which day 2 were you on?

Top tip for you, don't give up for many people at these schools, myself included, failed to get in on the first try. There's no denying these airline schemes are competitive!

I'd recommend taking a step back and assessing your own performance to improve it for next time. When i failed I knew deep down the exact cause so set about working on it

Aviation won't be going anywhere anytime soon :-)

I was on the 6th July assessment, just wondering what my plans should be now, work and get my PPL or carrying do another year at my aviation diploma.
Think I really thought it had gone well, passed maths, pilpat etc. Had funding in place.

As said above I also know a lot of people who got in second time around. There is absolutely no shame in it. If anything it's a good show of your determination to achieve. 12 months is such a short time in the grand scheme of things so learn from your experience and use it to your advantage next time around.

You've got until you're at least 35, possibly 40 in some cases, in order to make it onto one of these airline programmes. So, the best bet is to keep applying, remember, other programmes will likely open in the near future. Make sure you get feedback from your application with Easyjet and find out when you can next apply for one of the L3 programmes with another airline.

In the meantime, look for a career outside of aviation that you'd be happy in.

Sorry to hear that mate. Luckily there is always another time so all hope isn't lost.

Are you able to share what group activities they gave you and what type of behaviour/attitude they were looking for?

Thanks

If you pass the stage 2 assessment, do you book the stage 3 the same way you booked the stage 2?

Just keep involved with aviation in any respect, whether it's volunteering at your local museum, getting some related education or working at your local flying club while doing some PPL/Gliding, show you made use of this time to do something useful, if you like flying that much it should be a no brainer.

And next time always have a plan B beforehand , putting all your eggs in one basket expecting one result never leads to the strongest position, whether you're in the cockpit or in your case trying to pass

Best of luck.

There's two group activities, one practical and one theoretical (they ask not to share content). There are no right or wrong answers it's about how you work in a team and how you present yourself.

As for behaviours/attitudes.....just be yourself. If you try to be someone you aren't they'll pick up on it very quickly. Remember one of easyJets values is integrity!

Best of luck!

Hey Guys,

During the training, are you paid or receive a monthly allowance from easyJet?

Thanks

No, you must pay during the training in instalments. The total money you need to pay is about 123,000.

However, after you complete training and have been given the job, you are given 69,000 back in instalments for the next seven years with your pay tax free.

Maybe someone on the course could clarify but I don't believe you are given anything back other than some small form of tax relief if you are UK based. I would go into this on the basis you wont see any of the 100K+ coming back your way.

Yes nothing is absolutely garunteed however L3CTS say,

"Training Security Bond solution
Airline Placement Limited (APL), a wholly owned subsidiary company of L3 CTS, will provide a Training Sponsorship for the Basic and Intermediate phases (excluding the initial Foundation Element of the Basic phase).

Training Sponsorship represents a significant investment, and to mitigate the risk to APL (the sponsor), you will be required to deposit a Training Security Bond of 69,000 which will be held by APL.

We provide a unique opportunity for your Training Security Bond to be repaid to you over a period of 7 to 9 years once fully employed by an Airline Partner.

Please note: This is not payment for training."
