Thanks for the heads up. I plan to go to the selection process in June, right after my studies.

Just to confirm, how long did it take, in weeks, for your route allocation?

We heard 1 week after what route we were allocated. I believe there are still some people waiting up to 8 weeks.

I finished selection at the start of January and had my route allocation mid February. Bit of a wait when compared to others but it makes no difference

Route

@michae249 Dublin

Why do you think you were unsuccessful in not having EZY offer you a route? Did many of the folks on your selection day get offered an EZY position?

All the best,

All the best,
They don't tell you exactly why except for saying that the competition for routes is extreme. Especially when there's so many people going for a small amount of routes.

Of the 16 on my selection I got in contact with about 5/6 and one got route 1 and the other Route 2. Didn't hear of any others getting through.

Although getting whitetail isn't exactly what I was hoping for, to get through selection to that point takes a lot. Thankfully I'll be taking up the offer of whitetail.

Thanks for the reply.

Seems a bit up and down then given that an earlier post states that 8/10 of those who passed the selection day were offered an EZY route.

Pilapt was straining but I'm yet to meet anyone who said it was easy

Probably due to the amount of people now applying there is less places on routes hense more of a chance for whitetail option.

I do not have a degree but currently work in the aviation industry as an Aircraft technician apprentice in Dublin.

For the initial online application, does it require an attached CV or is it more of a university-style personal statement? I'm looking at submitting an application within the next couple of weeks and want to be prepared. Thanks

No CV required.

It does ask two questions that do require university-styple personal (answers) however.

In case it hasn't been mentioned here before, easyJet MPL trainees now get a full EASA SEP PPL as part of their flying training, something you don't get with the ATPL. Quite a good addition really. The reason is that otherwise an easyJet MPL student wouldn't have at any time got a traditional flying qualification.

Should note that this isn't included in the ATPL as obviously it's not needed since those cadets get a CPL/ATPL, which include the privileges of a PPL.

Congrats mate.

What’s the deal with references?

e.g - When does easyJet request them? I.e after route allocation or before? And, does easyJet request a referee from both of the provided referees?

Thanks,

(Open to anyone who knows)

When applying through the FTO there should be a section where you can put in any references, I'm not sure when/if they are contacted however.

Also L3 have recently introduced cut-e aptitude testing as part of the assessment process following stage 1. Multi-tasking, missile test, etc. not sure if this has been discussed already.
