Interesting, where are you getting these figures from may I ask?

Thanks for your reply, I wasn't sure that by having a sponsor on whether you would receive a small annual wage. As otherwise you will need additional savings for food, holidays, car etc.

From going through the process.

The fact that some of you seem to believe CTC will give you your money back after the hold pool points to some very successful marketing.

Thanks
I think people have misread your question! The answer to this is no you do not, you will have to fund living expenses yourself or through the loan.

Is anyone aware of the sort of things you are tested on in the computer tests undertaken in the first stages of the CTC training?

Just so I know, are BBVA still doing the loans (reports in May that they'd stopped), has another provider stepped in, or is everybody starting this year just flush with 109k in their/Mum and Dad's/Granny's back pocket?

BBVA are still taking on new applicants until November. However their lending criteria is very strict and unless you are towards the end of paying off your mortgage or motgage free then the likelihood of borrowing the full amount is very slim. Look around for other high street banks as they do offer similar products they just don't brand them as pilot training loans and thus don't charge the earth to set them up. Best of luck.

Apparently if you contact them they will give you the info as usual, give it a go. Last I heard was that they were stopping the loans in November later this year.

You will be tested on many things such as mental maths, hand to eye coordination and spatial awareness through these computer tests.

This is called a pilot aptitude test and there are many online packages to practice the "core skills" as they say however they are not 100% accurate of what tests you may see as I've heard easyJet change their tests once in a while.

Here's an example of an online package that lets you practice for easyJet specifically:https://pilotaptitudetest.com/knowledgebase/easyjet/

There are also many good blogs you could find online of candidates who have gone through the process.

Best of luck.

Where the bond is concerned I certainly wouldn't use it as a deductible from course costs / loan repayments in any future financial planning. It's an incredibly clever way of saving costs for all parties and also a way for L3/CTS to ensure your performance. If you're going for the easyJet MPL then do so presuming you're going to be paying the full sum and then forget about the bond for now. It shouldn't really be a deciding factor. At the request of the moderators here I shall not post a link, but those aware of my blog will find an article there related to it.

In respect of the pre-Dibden tests - if they're even being employed this round - then they're called Cut-E. Employers can pick and choose a combination of tests so who knows what battery you'll get this time. Dibden tests are PILAPT. Again, lots is documented on these on several cadet blogs and latestpilotjobs.com, pilotaptitudetest.com, and SkyTest will provide an idea as to what to expect.

Living expenses wise, budget a few thousand for that. Despite how much we moan about Britain at least we've the infrastructure. It certainly isn't cheap to live in New Zealand where easyJet prefer you be sent.

Do any of you have an idea when we would hear back from easyJet for the route allocation after completing stage 3 at L3 last week?
Thanks.

I am a bit confused with what actually happens before and at assessment 1 (l3/ctc) interview. Can anyone update me, please?

the "bond" works as such.

Airline x offers you a job with a salary of 35k. If airline x is part of the program you can choose to take a "salary" of 23k and have the remaining 12k per year tax free. You still earn the same amount but save a few hundred on tax. Think of it as tax relief, for now. I say for now because HMRC are now looking closely at it.

To say that the course is fully sponsored and you get 70k back or however much it is now is a lie.

savings all round for some!!

So on that basis the airline saves employers national insurance contributions on the reduced 'salary' that they pay. 15% I think. Plus further savings - 7% with easyJet, on the employers pension contributions that will be based on the reduced salary. No wonder HMRC may be interested.

I applied to the program in early June at L3.
The application process has not finished yet and now the website shows nothing at the application status window (after some documentation request, which never was acknowledged by them) how much should I wait them to reply my application and appoint me for an assessment date? FYI: Before this an "under review" text appeared.
How much is the waiting time between you finish the online application and you get the first appointment or reply? Should I ask them about?

If there's someone may help me with this, I would be grateful. Many thanks!

I applied on the 11th of May and passed the application screening on the same day! I would contact them as it seems to be taking much longer then I imagine it should.

easyjet/ctc MPL contract

Hi everyone, been following this thread for a while, thanks for the advice & information. I've recently been offered a place on the easyJet MPL route 1, and i've been sent through the contracts. Has anyone sought out legal advice regarding the contracts? I'd love to speak to someone who has, or who has already enrolled/completed the course.

My main concern is that i'm agreeing to sign a contract with easyjet, which would happen after course completion, without actually seeing that contract.

This is interesting, I was under the impression that the conditional contract was issued before the course started?

Just out of curiosity when did you go through selection?

easyJet Europe in Austria

easyJet has today announced that 30% of its operation will transition to a new airline - easyJet Europe - to be registered in Austria. This 30% represents the existing mainland EU operation and associated aircraft. The move in itself safeguards the EU to EU domestic flights post-Brexit. The new airline will become a subsidiary of easyJet UK.

New jobs will be created in head office roles within Austria to support the business and 30% of easyJet UK's fleet is to transition to the new business in time for the UK leaving Europe. All UK based jobs will remain unaffected. Aircraft themselves are not to be repositioned to Austria as part of this.

Note, It is not yet known how this will affect eventual cadet placement with easyJet and whether cadets will remain within the UK business or new Austrian business based on company needs. As an example, easyJet's other business easyJet Switzerland is an entirely separate legal entity and inter-company transfers aren't quite as simple.
