Of course if one is very passionate about the airline, then one must get right into the information available!

I get notifications about new easyJet related news, I've spoken to easyJet pilots, easyJet MPL cadets, an easyJet HR emplyee and I've even attended an easyJet seminar!

The one most important thing that I learnt is that easyJet wants someone who is very passionate about flying and easyJet itself...

Changing Career

I am currently a teacher and want to change career. I am 30 with a wife and two kids who are very supportive of my potential change. It is always something I have wanted to do but I had my family young and teaching was a safer route. I used to fly gliders as a teenager with the Air Cadets so I am not a complete novice with a 'pie in the sky' dream. I am at early stages with my research but would like some advice on the EasyJet MPL route (assuming I were to be successful of course!).

I am more interested in what happens at the end of the 18months of training. There is lots of information regarding possible training routes but not quite so much on what happens at the end. I understand that my base could be anywhere (hopefully in the UK) which we can deal with for a few years until a space in Edinburgh opened up but what sort of "take home pay" would I be looking at? The advertised salaries of 40 - 50k in the first few years are very tempting and similar to what I am earning now but I understand this could be misleading depending on how many hours i'd be used as well as paying back bonds etc.

Many Thanks.

Yes thankfully i passed ! Got my email from L3 this morning !

Well first of all everyone will arrive at around 8:15 . Just make sure your early . Try to get involved with everyone in the group of 16 or so. Its important to get to know each other .

First youll get a presentation from the EJ team . Theyll give an introduction go the company and then show you what happens if you pass that day.

Afterwards your group assesment begins . Now I cant disclose any information about it but ill say its important to get involved and just be yourself.

After these 2 group assessments youll have lunch

After lunch the interviews begin. I got to go first (not sure why but maybe as they seen i live in dublin)
its a 1 to 1 interview with an assessor from L3. There were no curve ball questions. The first questions are to make you feel relaxed like "tell me about your hobbies"
After this the main interview questions start. All motivation and competency based . "Name a time youve been a leader " "a time youve youve lead a team"

The interview is nothing to be worried about . Just do your homework and youll be okay . After your interview your free to go.

I'm in a similar boat with wife and kids albeit a bit older.

I looked into CTC etc. but decided after reading many reviews it would be safer to go modular for about £55-60k (assuming minimum hours etc.) and not risk losing the house and also I couldn't easily relocate. Having Staverton (Gloucestershire) Airport and some great FTO 5 minutes away helps sway things toward modular too.

Hope that helps?

Well Congrats

So they already said if you pass it that’s really quick !
What is the next step then (Medical, etcc.. ?)


I’ve book my assessment but didn’t got the link for the Cut-e online, do you remember approximately when they send it to you ?

Remember to be careful as at this point as your route allocation can still be whitetail - class 1 med isn't cheap

For me it's no issue as I already have my class 1. I'd recommend people do it before they go for assessment.

If it helps, it took 3 weeks for them to tell me that I was MPL. We all kept in contact. I think out of the 14 on my day, 4 got route 1, 3 got route 2, and 1 got route 3. 2 were given whitetail, so yeah whitetail is still an option, especially because places on the easyJet scheme are limited. I personally got my medical after finding out the result, some may say that's risky, but bearing in mind the medical is fairly expensive, spending £500 on a medical, when you may not be issued with the route you want, may not be the best move - everyone's circumstances are different though obviously

Congrats on that. Have you started yet?

Yes but also at least you know youll be even able to pursue a career as a pilot before going for assessment. Thats my outlook on it

I start on Feb 13th (EZMP27/CP184) So it should be good fun, at least when GS is out of the way

Yeah, that's true actually. But for lots of people, airline schemes hold far more security, and therefore it is understandable that people want some confirmation of their route before getting a medical. Although it's good to have it booked at least, as most can be paid on the day. I got lucky and managed to grab a cancellation at 2 weeks notice, but some friends had to wait 3 months...

Was there much time between being given route allocation and your start date in February?

I think it is strongly dependant on how quickly you can get medical/funding sorted since they are both required before you are given your start date. For me I was given my route allocation on the 22nd Sept and then because I found it particularly difficult to get a funding option sorted I was only given my start date, of March 13th (CP186), on December 22nd!

Hey man, I think it all really depends on what's going on at the time to be honest... I got my route confirmation in September, and got my start date confirmed in November, simply because it was approaching the end of the year, and not many courses were going to be starting before Christmas... i'd say if you have the money though, it's good to get the medical, as it tells you whether you're fit to fly or not, but £500 for a lot of people is a lot to spend without the security of an offer / route they are happy with
