BALL GAMES

Hi Guys

I unfortunately was not successful in stage 2 of the generation easyjet program, however, I have been given the opportunity to apply for the APTL stage 3. In addition, i will have to resit the ball games element of stage 2, as that was the only element i failed on first attempt. My question is, does anyone have any tips regarding the ball games element, or what to expect in the interviews/team work part.

Many thanks

Quite right, just the numbers of cadets joining this year have been reduced due to lack of training capacity. So we can expect a possible backlog/ holdpool of cadets waiting to join ezy which will possibly slow things down for those due to finish sometime in 2019 etc.

Keep going! Don't let stage 2 put you down.

I haven't actually attended the selection process but I know a couple of things about the interview/team work part from various sources including here.

Team work:
The group will be given a task where you can demonstrate your leadership and team working abillities. Try to engage in the conversation, not too much because you want everyone to have a say, but not too little because that doesn't demonstrate anything. Be yourself and be confident!

Interview:
The interview is usually a one on one where you will be asked about yourself such as your hobbies and why you want to become a pilot. You will also be asked compentency questions for example, tell me about a time when you demonstrated leadership etc.

Remember, L3 CTS are not here to trick you, just be sure to do your homework before stage 3.

Good luck!

What's the latest on funding chaps?

Any other banks stepped in post BBVA? How are people funding the MPL?

Thanks

L3 seem to have not publicised much about their new partner Optimum Credit yet apart from a very basic explanation on a website link, somewhat strange but I guess maybe the ink is still drying.
Offering depending on property up to 250,000 (and potentially easier to obtain), but no payment holiday mentioned, and higher interest rate. Something to weigh up for MPL but a very precarious position to be in to be if route 3 and below, especially considering those that have been demoted to whitetail and are now facing a big hold pool as the jobs become more scarce after the demise of Air Berlin and Monarch.

You'd be one of the first to go through the new process if you choose and I'm sure many here would be very interested to hear how it goes. Maybe call their "Careers advice line" and dig into this financing a bit deeper.

Best of luck

The no payment holiday is tough, the higher interest rate is in line with other moneysupermarket offerings (by my quick look on moneysupermarket).

L3's advice to me was talk to an IFA or have a chat to your local bank.

Are they really "demoting" easyJet integrated ATPL route 3 people to whitetail? For what reason?

Route 3 here, currently 9 months in, flying in NZ and have heard nothing of anybody on the easyJet programme being demoted to whitetail thus far. Failing more than 4 times in your ground school exams may trigger such an event, but I believe it's so far so good for EZY cadets. Chances are if you were selected, you will pass just fine.

Maybe I misheard then. However a few people on the Generation EasyJet scheme have failed exams recently and have had their place put at risk, someone I know has even stopped training totally at L3 (at least for now) midway through theory, whether that was their choice or not I am not sure. The whole offer is conditional after all.
Are EasyJet not after something like 85% average results anymore? Or have things changed.

75% average (so 14 exams at the pass mark) and no more than 3 fails are their criteria, however doing better will obviously look good, and is especially important for the Route 2 upgrade, though your previous life experience plays a large part in their decision for upgrading you too.

I'm taking the stage 2 assessment soon and I haven't read anything about the ball games yet, is there any chance you can describe what you had to do please?

There are plenty of blogs online which describe the L3/CTC aptitude test well. Websites that sell a subscription service to practice elements of the aptitude test also have a description of the type of elements L3/CTC use to test you.

Good Luck!

Has anything come out of this meeting from easyJet?

This is all Ive even told:

On Thursday, members of the CC and our BALPA National Officer met with easyJet management, furthering our commitment to eradicate Flexicrew. Good progress has been made and BALPA will be providing easyJet with a skeleton draft of what may be a workable solution for crew and company alike. As soon as we have the Company's response we will provide a more detailed update.

Anyone starting on this scheme soon, via either L3 (CTC) or CAE OAA?

I know during presentation they mentioned a winter 19 start so that roughly equates to a summer 18 training commencement.
Which day did you do your interview I did mine on the 10th Jan and have not been given route allocation yet
