Apologies if I wasn't clear enough, but CTC Aviation opened their very first application window or at least announced it in June 2016. Oxford didn't do the same until October 2016. That's four months out. With CTC Aviation having closed the scheme a few months ago I would consider it opening again as the second application window for the scheme... i.e. it's second run. I'm speculating here, but I very much doubt that CTC Aviation would have the names of previous OAA applicants without the airlines involvement in the process somewhere. So, if you'd previously applied to OAA and try to apply to CTC Aviation this year then I imagine CTC Aviation would have your name on a list.

In respect of OAA, I imagine it incredibly likely that when Oxford eventually close/re-open the scheme that the particulars will change to match in the sense that previous CTC Aviation applicants can't then re-apply at Oxford either. It'll be as simple as that. Generation easyJet appears to be easyJet taking more control over their program than the former MPLs. It seemed like a very managed launch across the various training organisations last year and, given the cost for a selection event, I can't imagine it being the schools putting these restrictions in place themselves.

I just received an email that application window is now open.
I applied last year for the MPL for EZY ,not generation one (I do not know if matters). I attended the pilapt test at Dibden but was not successful.

My question is , they sent me the rejection email last year stating

"We can advise you that upon further review of your assessment results, you are eligible to reapply to this programme again in 6 months."

Does that mean I am eligible to apply even though they state re applications are not accepted?

Quoting the Facebook Q&A you can only apply to easyJet again should you have previously applied prior to it becoming generation easyJet. So if you simply applied to the MPL before these 3 routes came about then you'll be able to apply this time with no issues.

I'm confused guys.....unlike efato75kts, I DID apply for the generation easyjet (GEPTP) last year...I passed everything except the final interview (impatient interviewer) and then got this email the day after saying:

"Thank you for attending your recent Generation easyJet Pilot Training Programme non-technical skills assessment day.

Following a careful review of your results, we regret to advise that you did not meet the standard required on this occasion to be considered for a place on the programme.

We understand that this will be disappointing news and can advise you that upon further review of your assessment results, you are eligible to reapply in 6 months."

It doesn't say that it has to be the WINGS that I can only apply for in this email. Written like it is leads me to believe that I can reapply!?!?!?

It's been exactly 6 months for me as well as that was back on 28th October 2016 I got this email.

@Jenna_Aviatrix

Back when I was applying to schemes the 6 month window was related to when you could reapply for Wings or the same program so long as you continued to meet the criteria when it reopened.

The airlines can change things up from time to time and easyJet are by no means alone as Flybe made alterations to their financial arrangements for their latest MPL intake. In the case of easyJet though, the shift to Generation EasyJet was a rather big change and, for whatever reason, they have altered the criteria for its second run to exclude past applicants. Whether this is a temporary or more permanent change remains to be seen. As disappointing as it sounds, there's not a lot we can do at this point and my best advice would be to call CTC Aviation directly on Monday. I feel that nobody on PPRuNe will be able to provide you the answer you're looking for and that the guys at the school will be best placed on this occasion.

P.S. remember that easyJet are only one of many airlines out there that run this types of program.

Can anyone shed any light on whether any males have been successful in having their loan underwritten by ezy? I'm confused as to how they market the Amy Johnson initiative for females, then also say they will underwrite loans for outstanding applicants?

On a side note: apparently there is going to be a new series called "easyJet: Inside the Cockpit" which will look into the training provided by CTC for easyJet cadets to the point where they become first officers! Sounds truly intresting for those planning to apply next year maybe, and it's going to be on ITV.

Salary

Can anyone help out with some up-to-date salaries for Easyjet FOs?

1) Pilot Jobs Network states a SO salary of 43900. Is this the salary UK based cadets go onto once they get off Flexicrew?

2) At Flyer a few weeks back CTC said that the 69,000 bond is repaid to you over 7 years if/when given a permanent contract in the UK. Is this repaid on top of salary or as a tax free allowance (eg, your "salary" is reduced to 32000 + ~10,000 bond)

Long time lurker, finally sent off my application for Easy today... From what I've read in the previous Easy MPL thread, both of those statements are correct:

1) Flexicrew might not exist by the time you get there.

2) It does give you a slight tax advantage, but then... it's your own money being paid back as part of your salary

Good luck to everyone else applying this year!

For the CTC bond your salary gets reduced by 1,000/month and you are then "repaid" your training bond on top of the remainder. At least that is how it was explained to me by CTC

Edit: Just to add CTC didn't come straight to the point and say your salary was reduced, they said you are put on a different contract when you become permanent and the new salary is essentially low 30s ... i added 2 and 2 together

This is how I thought it worked aswell.

It's worth pointing out aswell that no cadets have actually graduated through the Generation Easyjet scheme yet. It's therefore hard to know exactly what terms are going to be offered and when.

Anyone else's info on this is much appreciated!

when I finish training (2019)
On that note, early 2019 also happens to be the date the UK leaves the EU. Without wishing to be too negative or turn this into a political thread, that carries signifcant risk of an economic downturn, at which point all bets are off as to what potential T&C's would look like anyway. Needles to sa this is a worst case scenario but it's one worth considering given the sums of money involved.

how come the easyjet selection day is over two day, how is it split? Do you have to pass day 1 in order to get through to day 2?

Yeah, if it's the same as last year, you need to pass day 1 (technical) to be invited to day 2 (interview and group task)

1) Yes
2) Tax free allowance. Your salary is reduced by the exact amount of bond repayments you will receive

EasyJet has posted an article on pilot career live announcing that they will be having the biggest ever recruitment drive as of June, they will be recruiting 450 new pilots!

They have also released salary information;
"Cadet Scheme 40k-50k
Second Officer 40k-50k
First Officer 54k-58k
Senior First Officer 66k-75K
Captain 114k-146k
easyJet note: The total reward package includes flexible rosters, basic pay, on target bonus and sector pay and other allowances plus employment benefits such as pension. All these ranges are based on pilots working full-time. There will also be part-time (at 75%) and fixed rosters (paid at 90%) contracts available."

Marketing drivel again, What isn't mentioned is despite all this growth,profit and celebration, they still expect up to 130,000 to be borne by the cadet if you want to join the ranks. Who wanted to buy a house anyway?

Clearly Brexit obviously isn't worrying them as they made out to be.

Another kick in the teeth for many of us

By my calculations based on the Flexicrew rates mentioned on here a cadet would have to fly 900hrs and get a further 4-5 standbys a month to earn 40,000 year 1. That seems quite unlikely, but perhaps the pay scales have changed (fingers crossed)

Agree 100%. Especially seeing as BBVA pulling out of the loan market would appear to have torpedo'ed any chance of a loan guarantee.

The skeptic in me would be hesitant around "Total Reward Package". As I know from my current non-aviation employer that my Total Reward Package paints a much nicer picture than my take home salary.
