Hi guys, how is everyone getting on? Is anyone starting with L3 CTS / CTC Aviation on EZMP27 or CP184? Best of luck to everyone still going through their selection events!

Think it's different for everyone mate, some hear within 10 days, others a few weeks, some have waited 3 months! Not sure what determines the wait, but whatever happens, they will get back to you - so just keep thinking that

Has anybody heard their route allocation in the last few days? I'm at 6 weeks now so I'm getting anxious (although I know I just have to remain patient!)


Do you find out by email or phone?

Hi everyone, I have just been chosen my date for the day 2 assessment for the easyjet MPL course. Does anyone have any advice or links that would be helpful regarding the cut-e tests? I've already seen the ones on PilotGeorge, so is there anyone who could help? Thanks

What are people’s tips for the non-tech day? Did people use the LPJ interview questions (or group exercise) as prep or just generic competency based questions?

Well done for getting through to the next stage mate. I'd say dress smartly, and be the guy who actively speaks to everyone without forming a group, and sticking with the same people. Make it known that you can confidently communicate with different people - as people are watching everything you do...

For the interview, think about some examples of times you've shown leadership, motivation, team work, dealt with conflict etc... and try and practise some answers - detail is important, because they may ask you follow up questions. Too much detail is better than too little... make eye contact, and speak confidently and at a good speed, and always relate any answer you give to how it will ensure you can be the best within easyJet's culture.

For the group task, try and let everyone engage, bring in those that are quieter, and try and manage the task, whilst still allowing others to suggest and make inputs too. If you aren't managing the time, try and take charge of another element... and always appear to be trying to involve those that aren't saying much. At the same time, if anyone is trying to over-control things, perhaps say, "right, before we move on, why don't we make sure everyone is happy first".

Have fun too, it's a nice day, and I definitely found it more enjoyable than the PILAPT and Maths. Hope it goes well bud!

I have been successful through the assessment process and have been offered route 1 MPL, does anybody have any companies or banks they can recommend speak to with regards to financing the course? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Congrats on the offer.

As far as I am aware there are not many products out there that offer the payment holiday that BBVA did. Your best bet is to probably engage a broker, but if the payment holiday isn't a deal breaker then what you want is a large secured loan, which you can compare on moneysupermarket and uswitch or just Google.

Please could someone give me details of the conditional job offer/ contract from easyJets for Route 3 (ATPL). At the end of the 2 years when you have completed training are you able to apply to other airlines if they are hiring? or am I bound to easyJet?

Also.. Why does easyJet offer a ATPL route and and MPL route when both routes get you into the right hand seat at easyJet. Surely if a candidate has shown sufficient aptitude during selection to warrant a conditional job with easyJet, then why do they need to offer two different courses?

The employment contract just states the terms and conditions of flying for easyJet, and states that you are bound to fly for them after completing training - as long as you meet their standards... To be honest, if you are wanting to apply to other airlines, and do not have your eyes set directly on easyJet, after the 18 months/2 years, would it not be best to consider Whitetail? The scheme is designed for those that specifically want to work and fly for easyJet for whatever reason, and in the interview they specifically ask "why easyJet"...

Think the different routes allow and encourage different types of people to apply. I.e. Those don't have the A-Level results/degree, but still would easily make a very successful easyJet First Officer...Perhaps call CTC/L3 mate for more info?

I'd stay on this tagged scheme if I were you. It gives far more certainty of a job. There's enough people waiting up to a year currently for a job after whitetail that it's not worth it, a job is a job, and EasyJet have one of the better contracts out there compared to where some whitetails have gone.
