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.

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!

I'd say with current waiting times. If you applied now you'd be looking at the end of the year for route allocation or even longer for start dates.
