Thanks a lot
Hello,

I've just done this assessment and its questions based on your personality as identified above.

I would however, search for Cut-e Shapes on youtube and a video that explains how the test works will come up so that you can become familiar with it.

May I ask, what date is your date 2?

I also recommend using a flight simulator with a joystick. This may help with flying through the boxes and deviation indicator.[/QUOTE]


Hi I have my assessment with cae on the 9th what simulator would you recommend to train on . Hoping to buy my joystick this week

It means instead of spending a year employed by CTC Fliexicrew and being contracted out to easyJet, you will join on a permanent contract as a SO for two years. Presumably that means pension, insurance, sick pay, holiday pay and all other benefits of a permanent contract are included from day one. Its a real positive step that gives job security in the crucial early years of your career, especially if you have a large loan to pay back.

This i believe has come about due to negotiations between ezy's BALPA representatives and ezy management. I think the decision reflects well on both parties.

Oh sweet that sounds a lot better than doing flexicrew then. So now it will be a set salary per year rather than the hourly rate like before? Does this apply for L3 CTS easyjet contracts too?

Yes the old L3 CTS (Formally CTC) offer was to be employed by a crew outsourcing company called CTC Fliexicrew (Loads of details if you search the forum). You were contracted out for 12 months, at which point you had an interview with your Base Captain to see if you were fit for permanent employment. I believe a similar set up was present with cadets joining from CAE Oxford too.

Right okay makes sense. Does this mean we will now be employed by easyjet from the start or do we still have a year being employed by l3? Cheers for the help!

Hello,

I used Microsoft Flight Simulator X to become familiar with using a joystick.

Any decent flight simulator such as X-plane or Prepar3D should be fine.

Good luck!

Thank you!

As the program is closed temporarily, I believe the last day 2 assessments are 1, 2 and 3rd of May for this session.

Good luck

L3 easyJet MPL next opening

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know when L3 easyJet MPL is expected to open again?
I have passed Day 1 and would prefer to delay my Day 2 for next opening however, if it will take longer than a year, my Day 1 results will be invalid.
Anyone knows if this has happened before and if so how long it took them to re-open again?

Cheers!

Congratulations first of all!

It could be anyone's guess really on when they open again however, since its "temporarily" closed, this might suggest that it'll open perhaps later this year but of course, this is just a guess. As always, you can call L3's supportive pilot careers team and perhaps they could give you a better idea.

In my observations, the program opened for applications again in April 2017, with a closure date around the time when CTC was re branded as L3 CTS. This closure date was pushed back to December 2017 and then again for June 2018. Of course, easyJet closed the program earlier in April 2018. With CAE still open for applications, and L3 CTS being the favourable choice of ATO by easyJet, I suggest that we could see the program open well within 1 year - again, educated guess.

Isnít the stat about L3 being the preferred ATO by easyJet from the pre-Generation easyJet days regarding whitetail holdpool employment? Because easyJet have stressed in multiple of their seminars iíve attended that they offer the Generation easyJet program in L3 and CAE, the same course and the same equal opportunities is it not? They always mention FTE Jerez too but I have no info about them.

Iím just curious after reading your comment thatís all, since this course seems to be offering equal numbers of places and training across the ATOís. Thanks. Also best of luck in your stage 3!
