Sure, I had my stage 3 in the first week of July. Have you had your stage 2/3 yet? If not, then hope it goes well!

Hey guys!

I've got my stage 2 at OAA soon and I was just wondering what tests come up in the ADAPT assessment so I can prepare for these.

Any help would be greatly appropriated.

Thanks!

hey, firstly they send you a personality questionnaire to do a few days before. once there you have to do a progressive maths test, physics test, and a bit of a weird one where you spot shapes in things and remember number sequences. after that there's like a flying test and then the FAST test where you are overloaded with information and then have to recall some parts in a set of questions at the end, you get to do it twice and the main thing they want is for you to improve your score from the first time. after that it's the red dot test, then you go home.

the oaa latest pilot jobs prep is virtually identical so i would recommend using that if you want to prepare thoroughly!

the administrator lady is super nice and makes it really relaxed, so like she emphasises that u aren't locked in, and are allowed to leave the room as and when you wish for short breaks; i did twice as it broke the testing up a bit and helped keep me relaxed. some people do just prefer to hammer through though!

overall it's quite a good afternoon out so best of look and hopefully see you at stage 3!

ATPL course

Hello everybody!!
Does anyone know the price of integrated ATPL with Easyjet? Because I've passed the first phase (online phase) and now I have to go there to pass the assessment but if I pass this new phase I dont really know the cost of the training. Thanks!!

MPL Course cost = 109,000
ATPL Course cost = 123,800

Hi Alexcarmona99,

If you're having to ask this question I would get yourself a pen plus a pad of paper and start some serious research. It's never good to go applying for something to which you do not totally understand. I'm not saying this to be rude, more constructive.

Best of luck in your assessment.

Hopefully I'll see you at stage 3

Out of curiosity does anyone know roundabout what percentage of applicants get an acceptance letter for the airline specific schemes?

Also is there anyone who got funding not from BBVA but from a normal high street style bank, for example Natwest, I hear some people have been finding products in such places?

Added note:
I think it's important for those who are going to make a huge investment to understand the current climate of easyJet.

I suggest asking L3CTS about statistics and in terms of funding, L3CTS said to me that candidates have managed to secure funding similar to BBVAs from other lenders.

I do recommend asking L3CTS questions as they do reply quickly and seem happy in doing so in my opinion.

I have 1 year left of uni, I want to apply to a mentored/sponsored scheme. Easyjet seems like a good choice. I will need the 100k-ish loan for the training, but I will only take the loan if the airline can be a guarantor. My father is not willing to write off the house. Does Easyjet offer to be the loan guarantor with the Generation Easyjet scheme? Also, what is the selection process for Generation Easyjet with CAE OAA? Is there a way to prepare for the selection day tests?

I've not heard or read that anyone's loan has easyJet as their guarantor however if you do "exceptionally well" at the selection process, they can underwrite your loan however I'm starting to believe that the chances of that happening are extremely low...

In terms of the selection process at OAA, I recommend reading blogs of people who have went there. It basically consists of an aptitude test, a group task and an interview.

For your guarantor question:

From what I have understood, you will need to apply and be approved for the loan without any assistance from easyJet. This involves putting a business plan together and sourcing some form of security (e.g. a house). Then if you are deemed exceptional, easyJet will offer to underwrite the loan with their head office instead of whatever you used originally (presumably your parent's house). That being said, I wouldn't rest your hopes on being offered an underwriting.

I did mine on the 26th July and it was still the pen and paper no calculator set up. May I ask where you heard this?

That doesnt sound quite right - wouldn't that defeat the object of underwriting loans in the first place? If only people who can (and are willing) to source the loan anyway can get it then that's great for them but it doesn't do anything to boost accessibility

unfortunately it is right, easyJet confirmed this at the latest oaa information session. you have to be approved for a loan for them to then offer to put their hq up rather than your house

So technically, if you do not fulfill the repayments, then easyJet's Hangar 89 is going to be repossessed by the BBVA bank ha?

easyJet: inside the cockpit was actually quite good in my opinion, mentioned the cost which I'm glad they didn't try and cover up.
