If accepted onto Route 1-4, do EasyJet require you to stay with the company for x amount of years?

Currently, I suppose you could although CTC used to say on their application page that if you were not successful in either them or in OAA you couldn't apply - well that lasted for a month really if I rightly remember.

Other information to note:
Remember that both charge fees for selection.

another question, i know that no one will actually be able to give a real number here but maybe an educated guess...
of the ppl that go to the selection and pass it does any one knows how many pass only the school selection but no the companies, and been offered self sponsored route?
im asking because i have a whitetail offer from ctc (got it before the EZY option was open) and im trying to understand if i passed it whats the % that ill get in EZY or get the self sponsored option again or fail all together in the second time...

Just a quick question for the Stage 2 Assessment day at OAA...

Does anyone know what the memory tests are called just so I can practise them?

Thanks in advance

hi guys,

according to easyjet:

The funding required for the complete easyJet MPL route is 109,000, comprising:
Training Security Bond 69,000 (paid in 13 instalments)
MPL Training Fee 1 20,800
MPL Training Fee 2 19,200

Does anyone know when the payments of 20,8k and the 19,2k are due?

Cheers

MPL fee 2 about 14 months into training.

Gatwick - Summer 80-100, winter 30-50 - Annual 800-850
Luton - Summer 70-100, winter 30-50 - Annual 750-800
Stansted - Summer 50-80, winter 20-50 - Annual 650-700

Smaller bases tend to be much quieter for obvious reasons.

That's based on the guys I trained with at these bases. Gatwick guys tend to get hammered. Doesn't seem to be any hard and fast rules though. I'm on a perm contract and averaged 45/month during winter at Luton, some guys on flexi had 80-90. But also vice versa, some flexi guys complaining about not having many hours and perm guys getting hammered. Swings and roundabouts is the name of the game.

Thanks for those! It's only the winter numbers that look a bit scary if on flexicrew, however if what they told me at my interview phases that they hope to scrap it by the time I start should be okay.

I've got a question for the Stage 2 ADAPT test at OAA. Basically in the "FAST" or "Multitasking" task, I know you have to improve on the second go but say you do your best twice and the result is similar, would it not be safer to purposely do worse on the first go so that you can improve more on the second?

I know this is CTC not OAA however I assume the tests are similar, and they are scored using the same theory.
But on a few of mine if I recall I got the same score three times in a row, I was annoyed because I thought I failed as I didn't improve. However I I passed fine so who knows!

that's a good shout but i would argue against it, you will always score higher the second time round because it is essentially the exact same test you did 2 minutes earlier. so it's probably better to score well the first time, and then even better the second time. rather than poor the first time and then well the second

Thank you @flyingintheclouds and @wils180 for the replies! You're both right, I guess it's just best to perform at your best at all times...

It is an interesting test though!

Hi guys, to anyone that has been offered an easyJet route, what date did you receive your offer?

I'm trying to gauge when the 1 month ranking periods end and start.

I've seen one person say they received their email on 24th July so is it around the 24th every month that they send out results?

Am I too old?

I applied for the EasyJet MPL and have been selected for an assessment day at Dibden in September but I'm worried I'm too old. I've just turned 30 and always been passionate about being a pilot. Should I go for it?

Hi,

I had my selection on the 4th July, and got a successful route 1 e-mail on the 24th July. I know of others that heard later, some haven't heard yet... I think it's just a case of you get lucky, and hear quicker, or may have to wait a tad longer. Think they advertise a max of 8 weeks though, in their e-mail, which is much better than last year, as some waited up to 3 months to hear back...

Just be happy you've passed selection, because at the very least, you've got the ATPL easyJet route, which means you'll be classed as a tagged cadet, just like an MPL - best of luck

Hi JS1. You're not too old; give it a go. Whilst I don't know the upper age limit for application to the Generation easyJet programme, I am 31 and have been accepted through CTC onto easyJet's Route 1 scheme and will start training at 32. Go for it

I was 32 when I applied and passed the interview stages . If I can get the funding from out of thin air, I will be 33 when i start the course and close to 35 by the time i would start. Don't let age bother you (although I can imagine feeling old when you are on a course with a load of 20 year olds [if that ends up being the case])

Too old ?? Absolutely not - 30 is the perfect age to do this imho, a bit of life experience behind you, but still a long career ahead of you.

I applied at age 42 and have been invited to phase 2. However, I'm not sure whether I'd switch from modular to this at this stage in my life. If I was 10 years younger I'd go for it in a heartbeat.

Good luck !
