As far as I’ve 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 they’re 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!!

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.

Just changed my IAA medical to a CAA one and it took at least 5 weeks if not more and cost £75. Be prepared to wait. However L3 didn't mind and said I could just forward it on once I got it

Does anyone have any recommendations for pre-course reading?

I have six months until I start with L3 and have been given access to my Padpilot ATPL iBooks. Do any current or previous cadets have any recommendations on particularly hard topics/ concepts that would be beneficial getting my head around before starting.

Thanks. I'll probably just fly across and get a CAA medical to save any hassle.

Did you ask your Irish AME to sign off on the transfer? Or did you just send a copy of all the information they need with the form filled out to the CAA?

I believe there are only a couple of AEMCs that are certified to do initials. Check the UK CAA for AEMCs that are.

I know theres one in Gatwick.

Thanks for your reply. Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations or otherwise for the few that are there

Do you know if at this programme, are foreigners really welcome at assessments? I mean, Brexit is quite near now. Do they rather choose UK nationals? Or at least, make it easier for them?
