How long after your Stage 3 from OAA did you have to wait to be told you would be allocated a route?

It took 1 week to find out that I'd passed stage 3, but it took roughly 13 weeks to receive the route allocation (ultimately offered the MPL route). So yeah I don't think the waiting period is necessarily indicative of your final allocated route.

With L3 I waited 6/7 weeks and got whitetail. So maybe it has something

Yeah this is true, and everyone has heard at different times so I guess it is just how busy they are/if it has snowed ahaha. That's great though, congrats! Good luck with everything

Can anyone assist? 37 next birthday. Looking to finally do this. Kids up a bit and some equity on the house. PPL with night rating and 130 hours. Aiming for easy MPL route 1. Too old? Anyone know of any successful mid 30's easy cadets?

I can't comment on the age question since I'm not sure but there is a lot of info about that on this thread and website. On the other hand, according to CAE Oxford's Generation easyJet page, I do not think you are eligible for the easyJet MPL or ATPL to MPL upgrade, meaning you can only follow the ATPL/Whitetail route. Quoted from their FAQ section:

'To qualify for consideration for the MPL and CAE ATPL to MPL Upgrade , you must have no more than 85 hours of previous powered flight experience as a pilot or student pilot. Applicants with more than 85 hours of powered flight experience can still apply to the Generation easyJet programme, but will have to train on the White Tail route.'

Whether an MPL or ATPL is superior is subjective, but in this case easyJet are offering the MPL as the desired route along with a hefty price reduction over the ATPL. Check out each flight training academy's website and you'll see the reduction in costs

You could say that but the ATPL route costs more.

easyJet have created an absolutely fantastic webpage devoted to those wanting to become a pilot. It has got many facts and tips which should be helpful.

The MPL routes are designed for people with little/no flying experience and lots of cash. With your experience you should really consider looking at Modular (or at least Wizz and their scheme for PPLs). Otherwise your flying experience to date will be mostly overlooked as L3 do not generally take hours off their courses for someone in your boat.

MPL includes a cheaper TR. ATPL has TR charged at full whack (30k) which is slightly embarrassing now for EasyJet, that Ryanair are doing a far better deal than them. Tables are turning!

Virgin took on a Cadet in their last intake in his 40's so don't let age put you off at all.

All the best whatever route you choose to go down.

Could also consider FTE Flight Deck program aimed at experienced private pilots.

In some ways this is also good news. Good sign.

Thanks for the response. I am currently looking at the L3 option which has no such restriction.

Thanks very much for your response. Very encouraging to hear that. L3 responded today, I am off for assessment at the end of the month. Back to the Maths revision books!
