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.

£40k is about right as a starting salary if you're based in UK, France or Italy. At the moment there are zero hours contracts in the UK still though, which results in much less pay over the winter than summer.

You have to factor in loan repayments of up to around £1500 a month though, unless you have managed to save up £100k.

Hi all,

Congratulations to those who've been successful on the eJ programme. I received the good news in Nov myself and I'm currently finalising bits before getting a start date.

My question is - and it is slightly speculative - whether anybody has heard any information relating to the abolishment of Flexi-crew in the UK. I had heard Aug 2017 which has obviously passed now, and also that "it's being discussed in the latest pay deal" but nothing official on the eJ, BALPA etc. website.

Thanks in advance for any info and good luck to those going through selection.

I received an email newsletter from a current EZY pilot which stated that there will be a meeting on 18th Jan regarding the negotiation of the eradication of flexicrew so we will find out some time after that I imagine!

The chances are now that anyone starting a course by the time you finish I.e. 18 months that it will be gone.
Thatís what Iíve heard anyway.

Yes I've heard similar things, let's hope there's some truth! I think flexi can work out fine in terms of pay but it's the delay of the repayment bond that would cause hassle.

Awaiting route allocation as well, any one who has already recieved there route care to enlighten us with ideas on times between recieving route and possible start dates. I know it all depends on medical/finance etc but were you guys given a choice of start dates say 2 months in advance? I know during presentation they mentioned a winter 19 start so that roughly equates to a summer 18 training commencement.

At the end of my interview I asked about training start dates and was told that all courses up to June are full so would be after that.

easyJet have substantially reduced the numbers of cadets for 2018, simply due to a lack of training capacity with the takeover of Air berlin. So things will naturally be slowing down for a while with a backlog of cadets for 2018 knocking on into 2019.

It’s been a week since assessment day 2 and I found out last Friday I passed the L3 standard. So a fairly quick turnaround for me.
