2 nights before my assessment for easyjet MPL I was sent these. It's just a personality quiz. Just answer as honest as possible.

Hi Alvor, you can't 'Revise' for a cut-e test as its based on your personality, so knowing whats on it wont help you... if you just google it you can view their website and checkout how the test is laid out if that puts your mind at ease! Hope this helps!

Hello all, I'm considering applying for this programme as a career change. A few questions if anyone knows...

1) I was educated in the US for secondary school but moved to the UK for university. Because of this, I don't have any A level or GCSE results. I do have a BSc and MSc with merit from a Golden Triangle university, which in my industry would trump any A level or GCSE results. Do they really need an A-level / GCSE to get me over the first hurdle?
2) I'm 32, nearly 33. How much is this likely to go against my application?
3) I've started my PPL and am at 5 hours dual instruction. Should I wait to complete this before I apply or will not not matter?

Look at blog posts of cadets currently in training, they probably have a description of the cut-e tests.

1) Call CAE Oxford or L3 and they will clarify academic stuff. A university degree nonetheless should be fine. There's more emphasis on the PILAPT test rather than education in my opinion.

2) Age should not be a problem.

3) This course is AB-Initio which means that anyone with or without any flying experience can apply. It is up to you whether you want to complete it or not, and may provide a slight edge against other candidates who apply.

I personally wouldn't complete this. This course is ab-initio so is designed to train people on the basis of them having no flying experience so wouldn't be necessary or give much of an advantage.

I would also consider the financial implications. It's going to cost around 5k+ for a PPL. Might as well put this money into funding the course which will set you back at least 109k! Nothing to lose by applying- best of luck!

Probably disagree if I’m honest. Speaking from personal experience having some hours under my belt meant the learning curve wasn’t quite as steep for me early on as it was for others. As above it’s designed for ab initio so is no real issue but if you have a head start it helps. It also helps in the interview to demonstrate your commitment and motivation. There could be 6 months from applying until starting so if you have the cash, go for it!

Yes and no.
Friends who had a PPL already, whilst knowing a lot of skills, found they had to re-learn a lot of basic skills the "right" way, which they found frustrating and difficult to break habits sometimes. The three guys on my course with a PPL said it didn't help them.

If you want to do some flying beforehand, do it but in reality it is a luxury and not needed.

Perhaps they should be querying the quality of their past instruction!

Also, not sure of your experience but many of the instructors in the early phase of my course were very new instructors and very firmly had one eye on leaving asap to airlines.

Education does seem to factor, even with a degree. You can apply with equivalent to GCSE/A-Level from other countries but they must be equal those grades. There is a site you can see if they convert.

I applied and sat PILAPT with CTC/L3 but after sitting PILAPT (on the day) I was told that my English Grade did not equal the GCSE C required. I'm 32 and to be told that left me a bit speechless considering I had ample other qualifications.

I went home and booked myself into an IGCSE English exam which I sat a couple of months later. I was possibly the oldest person sitting the exam. Now i have an A* IGCSE although my plan to reapply has changed somewhat.

Intresting, hence more emphasis on calling the FTO for more information in regards with qualifications.

Don't waste your money going modular, that is should you wish to become an airline pilot. Seriously most of these flight schools ought to be taken to court for misselling their services.

If you have the chance to go with the Easyjet programme you take it.

Well I'm sorry but not everyone has 109,000 in their bank account.

At least get a introductory flight to show interest folks.
A few hours will show keen interest not just a dream or flight of fancy if you will!

Perhaps. But every instructor has their own habits and own things they like to pass on. Then when you go off flying by yourself, you may pick up your own habits too. Airline Flight Schools tend to be a lot more SOP / procedure based than some PPL schools.

Absolutely!

I'm not against flying privately, especially to work out if it is something for you or not. I'm just saying to give it serious consideration if you don't have spare cash available as it won't give you a massive head start in flying and certainly isn't noticeable in my RHS colleagues once they're flying the line on the Bus.

For anyone waiting on route allocation from OAA, don't worry too much about how long it's taking - I didn't hear anything back for about 12 weeks.
