Guys,

Correct me if Im wrong.
From my understanding easyJet is closing its application process on 11th April 2018. Those who are booked for assessments after 11 of April they can still become easyJet cadets providing that they have passed all the assessments before May 2018?.

Any idea when easyJet may reopen again? (was there similar scenario previously and if so, how long it took them to re-open applications?)

Thanks.

I guess you only mean in L3, I don't think they are announcing a re-opening date yet, but I'm hoping it's not too long in the future. However, CAE is open with no close date

yes, I did meant L3.
Any idea why L3 closes now and CAE keeps going (it's still easyJet MPL - just different training provider) ?

Cheers.

No idea unfortunately. On the phone today to CAE and they told me it was a 5 year course, and they're 2 years into it. This could be easyJet's decision or possibly L3 have reached a limit/number of cadets, who knows. I believe this course opened in CAE a few months before L3 too if I remember correctly

Currently waiting for route allocation. Does anyone know if you can be downgraded from the route you were originally streamed for? ie if I met the standards for MPL and my application was accepted to that 'stream' but I don't quite make the cut due to competition, is there a chance I will be 'downgraded' to route 2 or 3?

Same position as myself. Your route allocation depends on overall performance at selection. The required academic qualifications only open the door to route possibilities but ultimately its down to your results

You are correct. Easyjet are happy with the numbers at the moment coming in via cadets on 1, 2 & 3 routes. Plus the ex Air Berlin and monarch pilots. They stopped interviews and are just catching up with type ratings for the non tagged cadets that were hired via the hold pools. I know of a few people that have had to wait for about a year for a type rating date after being successful in interview.

Thatís interesting as on our selection day, the lady at L3 said that academics would now be referred to when making the final decision and we interpreted it as, school/uni results would play a part in the route allocation.

I think the email says something like 'we will be in touch in the coming weeks to confirm your route allocation, subject to your results.' My understanding is this is your results at selection. Obviously you need to have the minimum academic qualifications to be considered for route 1. This I suppose is where your academic record comes in. I could be wrong though! But realistically you could have a PhD and just about pass Pilapt, maths, group exercises and interview. In this case you might just miss out on route 1. This is only my understanding and opinion, but could be wrong!

I'd imagine its all taken into account when allocating routes tbh. Guess none of us know for sure as we're not involved with easyJet HR :P I too was told in the presentation that academics would be taken into account for route allocation but unsure if it was just, like you said gary minimum requirements for route 1 allocation.

My question was mostly about whether you are restricted to only route 1 or 2 if you meet the academic standards as knowing there are more spaces on route 3 would really not want to miss out on at least a spot on a tagged program.

Let me know how you get on! Have you sorted class 1 yet?

Not yet, am waiting for route allocation to be honest. Don't think I would take the white tail offer as it's a lot of money without a guaranteed job.. I'm pretty flexible on start dates and we were told the earliest courses we would be able to get on would be August / September so have time. How about you?

We were told that route allocation for the current 'batch' would take place next week. If not selected you're then rolled over to the next 2 month batch so will find out route allocation or white tail end of May-ish.

Yeah we were told the same. When did you do your 2nd day? I havent sorted medical as yet. Currently checking prices and deciding where to go. Might get an IAA one as cheaper for me and change to CAA before training commences.

As far as Iíve read online the CAA accepts an IAA medical the same as a CAA one but not the other way around. They should all really be the same standard as theyíre all based off EASA standards.

Exactly! As far as this programme is concerned, easyJet have confirmed an initial class 1 from another EU state is fine however it must be changed to the CAA for commencing training. This is essentially an admin function and costs about 50 quid to change. Its easier for me to jump in the car and head to Dublin. At 450 euro the price is rather attractive too!!

Best of luck for the start of your training! Hopefully see you at groundschool if I get on a route! Thanks for your encouragement earlier in this process when I thought I was too old!!

If any of you are on CP194 or CP197, we have started a Facebook group (EZMP31 & EZMP32). Would be good to know some of you before start dates.

L3 easyJet Day 1 test

Hi,

I have my day 1 test coming up soon which is Technical - Mental Arithmetic and PILAPT. I have heard that the best way to revise for Pilapt is via using SkyTest.
On the letter from L3 easyJet I have been told that the PILAPT tests I will undertake are as follow.
1. Hand/eye-coordination
2. Psychomotor Tracking
3. Mechanical Reasoning
4. Spital Orientation/awareness
5. Numeracy Skills
6. Capacity
On the SkyTest software I purchased under the "UK Pilot Aptitude" section I don't seem to have all these tests listed above. The tests that are available on this software are as follow:
1. Grid Concentration Test
2. Hands Information Processing Test
3. ILS Tracking Test
4. Multidimensional Capacity Test
5. Pattern Recognition Test
Are these tests similar to what will come up on assessment day? Since the titles are bit different and also there is nothing about Psychomotor Tracking or Mechanical Reasoning?

Thanks.
