First assessment

Hi,

Are there any good sites where I can practise for the day one assessment?

Thanks

Hi all,

Apologies if this has been covered already but could any of you advise which pilot aptitude test preparation software best resembles the PILAPT test undertaken in 'Assessment 1' at the L3 Airline Academy? I'm finding it hard to decide between SkyTest, Pilot Aptitude Test and Latest Pilot Jobs. Please let me know if there are any others that I haven't mentioned worth considering.

Many thanks for your help!

SkyTest is definitely the most accurate in comparison.

For the Maths element I used both Pilot Aptitde and Latest Pilot. The questions on Latest Pilot are more like what you will get but it will be delivered in the style of the Pilot Aptitude version.

I'm hoping to re-attend later this year and I'll be using all three again.

If you use SkyTest I would really let it push you by using the training assistant feature. It will really push your ability and you'll find the actual on the day test is easier than this.

Hi bayj

Firstly congratulations on getting through!

Secondly, they say 8 weeks probably because they don't want people constantly calling to ask and because L3 can't control how long easyJet will take with their part of the decision. From what you see on here, late in the month is when most people have been getting their route allocation, mine personally was right at the end. The people on your assessment may have just got lucky or has been the case sometimes, they may have only been able to get on a specific route and as such, the decision time was shorter.

I would advise waiting, there is no rush. Try and arrange your medical or look into funding etc if you haven't done. As far as I know, the last course this year is at the end of October and if you haven't got a medical, you are unlikely to be able to start on that .

Good luck!

Whoops, just read the 5th July bit (missed it first time round), maybe that is a bit of a long time(but still within what they say). Maybe a call to L3 would be Worth it on Monday. They can either give you some information/tell you they will enquire or repeat the 'minimum' 8 weeks line

A couple of people said they were going to set one up. Guess it never happened.

Hi, sat my day 2 on the fifth and heard back on the 6th from L3, emailed them during August to know if they heard from easyJet, got a reply saying that EZY was still reviewing my file and would get back to me. So you're not alone

Hey guys,

So, i passed my stage 2 at Oxford and dates have recently opened up for stage 3. Now my question is, there are dates with 18/18 places available and another with 6/6 available. So, does the number of people on the day affect/influence the day at all? Also, if you had a preference, which day would you choose, the one with 6 people or 18 people?

18 of the smallest people in the world would struggle to fit into one room for a group exercise. I'd guess it's highly, highly likely the 18 will be split into groups, maybe of 6!?

I recently came across the same thing and found that some of the OAA whitetail stage 3 dates were the same but with 12/12 available, presumably they are the same stage 3 assessment thus taking the total to 18. I would rather do a stage 3 with everyone being totally new to it but that's just my preference. The example you mention may be different also, however this is what I discovered a few weeks ago when looking at dates myself

Of course, it definitely makes sense that they will be split into groups of 6ish but I meant influence as in factors such as the waiting time for your interview being potentially longer if there is 18 of you instead of 6 and so on...

Ahh I see, that does make more sense to be honest. You said you'd prefer having your stage 3 with everyone there being new to it and I couldn't agree more. But there's no way to know that is there?

no that's right, and it's likely that for some it could be there second or third visit at this stage, i just meant i'd rather everyone be in the same boat, rather than some already being whitetail cadets. not that it makes much difference i suppose, that's just my personal preference.

Useful bit of info for you all...

The MPL syllabus at L3 - in respect of easyJet (currently) - has been modified to incorporate an EASA PPL. The flight test will be conducted during the flight training phase in New Zealand and prior to the initial IFR awareness stuff. It's nice to see a PPL and associated SEP rating incorporated as this permits a trainee to act as PIC and open a pathway to the more traditional CPL ME/IR route should it be needed.

Good luck to those in selection.

@Speedbird148,

That i'm not sure of and i guess will be known in time if other schools follow suit. But in anycase, MPL cadets receive the required training for the PPL so it seems a no brainer to add it on to be honest. As far as I know it's addition simply affords a cadet the option to step onto a more traditional route if they ever had to leave the school - to which could occur for any number of reasons. In my eyes it's still a welcome change as it gives you something to show for your hours.
