I am applying for the easyJet MPL scheme, I have been accepted onto route 1. I am going down on the 6th November for Assessment Day 1, is anybody else attending that?

For those still waiting. It has taken me exactly 10 weeks to hear from EZY so keep your hopes up!

If you are only just going down for your assessment you haven't been accepted onto route 1. You do the 2 assessment days, and then if you pass them both you will be allocated a route based on your performance throughout the process. You won't know until that point if you have route 1, 3 or just whitetail in the worst case.

So did you hear back today? Did they tell you by email or phone?

Hi all! Is anyone else still waiting for L3 to put up dates for the Day 2 non-technical assessment? If so, how long have you been waiting for and do you know how often they upload new dates? Thanks very much for any information.

I waited over 10 weeks for my response. After receiving the initial email stating that I was awaiting my route allocation, I thought it was a dead cert I was on one of the 3 EZY courses. I've only made it onto the whitetail.

I'd say if you hear back quickly you scored highly. If you wait months it's because they roll your assessment score over to compete against the next months applicants.

Gutted.

Honestly mate, well done for getting offered whitetail. Remember, some don't even get passed the initial application, if you're not happy though, you could ask L3 for some feedback, on what areas let you down, and find out about re-applying. the majority of whitetail seem to go to easyJet anyway, through the hold pool, so you still stand a good chance of being employed by them, if not another airline, perhaps one that even pays for your Type rating... Best of luck with everything anyway - it sure is a tough process to go through, especially when having to wait!

Thanks for the kind words mate. Yeah, just it would have been a lot easier re-mortgaging a family members house knowing that an EZY job was at the end. So hard for those from low-income families to become a pilot

No worries dude! Have you checked out the BA Cadet programme with L3/CTC? Same academic requirements, and the job at the end... works in the same way as EZY, in the sense that you could be on an MPL or ATPL route...

Have a long hard think about whitetail before going for it. Less cadets are leaving L3 and going straight to EZY as a result of the generation easyjet programme fulfilling most demands. Hold pools are filling up with people like my friends who have just done their AQC being told of a wait of up to a year for interviews unless you find your own work, throw in the sudden influx of ex monarch pilots and you get a very volatile picture. Who knows where you may find the industry in two years time, that's the leap into the dark that is whitetail.

As EC 2017 said, consider BA Cadet Programme, if you can afford it (its hardly different to EZY) then you're already past the first hurdle.

And flight training doesn't have to be this expensive for low income families, you are simply choosing the most expensive route there is, don't give up just because L3 want to charge the earth for the same blue book everyone gets.

Best of luck

Yeah I’ve seen it. Just called for feedback incase I were to try for other tagged schemes but they won’t give me any because I’ve been “successful” by achieving whitetail

Has anyone who’s started on a course recently had any indication of potential base they could expect/where they currently require?

I think that sums up their attitude fairly succinctly. Maybe you should remind then you shelled out just under 300 quid for the privilege.

Gen Easyjet with l3

Just out of dibden about 2 hours from stage 2 assessment. Writing this as I'm waiting for a flight home in Southampton. They told us at the briefing that the next dates for non technical was in the new year (2018) also they said that there are only so many route places available and if they are full you'll be offered whitetail. It's the exact same as EZY ROUTE 3 just not with an airline
If anyone has any questions feel free to ask

How did it go? That's interesting actually. So essentially it gives those that sit the assessments earlier on in the process an upper hand, compared with people that sit it later? Which would make sense, because when I was offered a route, several months back, it seemed lots of others were too, but it seems to have slowed a little recently, with fewer people posting their success on here... either way, hope you get the good news tomorrow bud!

The course might be the same, but the lack of airline placement from day 1 is quite a big difference. Rumour has it on here than the holdpool is currently pretty busy and as such 'Whitetails' might be waiting a while for jobs.

Having paid for an assessment the least they could do is offer some feedback....
Maybe ring back and sound more interested in the whitetail route, the prospect of another 90,000 sale might tempt them into giving you some more information

Hope this isn't the case, I have my non-technical assessment next Thursday! Hoping there is still places available for the MPL routes 😑!

The maths was straight forward enough. Easier than I expected. However let's not even start on the PILAPT. I don't even know what to say. It would honestly be fun if it wasn't your future career you had to do it for let's just say.
