Best of luck everyone in your future endeavours. Whitetail allocation here too so thats the end of the road for me. Wish I did this a lot earlier in life! One and only shot and it hasnt quite worked out. Hopefully all you guys make it to the flight deck sooner rather than later, and achieve your dream! For me...i'll be bimbling around the sky in my PA28! For now, from Gary, its over and out.

Which training provider did you apply to? Don't let the whitetail allocation make the dream disappear, it seems like there are numerous ways to the RHS and integrated isn't the only one!

I looked back at some of the previous replies of time taken for people to get their route allocation. The list below is a couple of the many route allocation posts throughout the thread. As seen, the results vary quite a bit.

13 weeks - Route 1
10 weeks - Whitetail
10 weeks - <Good News?>
10 weeks - Whitetail
8 weeks - Route 3
6 weeks - Whitetail
3 weeks - Route 1
1 week - Route 1

"class of 24 at L3, around 14 are easyJet. New course roughly every 3 or 4 weeks." - User Statistic (2017)
"5/6 and one got route 1 and the other Route 2. Didn't hear of any others getting through" - User Statistic (2018)

Just got an email from L3 saying I've got a place on route 1! Absolutely thrilled. My place is dependent on me achieving my A level predicted grades, so got some work to do in the meantime! Best of luck to everyone still waiting.

Well, I just got my death sentence.. Whitetail for me but oh well.

Noticed that it said it would consider me for 2019 start dates but there is no guarantee.

As the 2017/18 session for this program comes at a close, the end of this thread I guess comes as well. I wish everyone the best whether their in selection, in training, waiting for route allocations, starting training or simply moving on. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread and supported each other especially those who took the time to share their experiences.

To this point we had 950 replies and 296,444 views.

CAE guys, good luck with selection!

Just for news:

The Generation easyJet cadet pilot program should open on the 3rd of September with L3... Unsure about CAE's exact opening but should be around the same time.
Significant change I see is the removal of route 2 (easyJet MPL upgrade).

I hope this thread will be of help for anyone planning to apply! Good luck to all!

I’ve noticed the entry requirement no longer require A levels, just GCSEs at grade c or above.

Interesting point, clearly no need for route 2 then.

Maybe they've had to remove the GCSE requirements as candidates` Mummy and Daddy may be struggling to cough up 109k for their little cherub. But hey, Easy are all about equality

A levels have been removed to stand corrected. This change may have occurred simply because GCSEs are deemed harder with the new system in place :

Fair enough, I could continue ranting about the injustice of it all but then people might think I`m bitter. I`m going to go and hide in my unremortgaged box before heading off to do some farm strip taildragging and remind myself why there is no rush to fly an airliner

Based on how difficult many people say ATPL Theory is, I can't help but think it's going to be a big jump from GCSEs. The benefit an airline would get from demanding reasonable A-Level (or equivalent) results is that they would get people who had proven experience of learning a lot of theoretical information in a short space of time.

I'm sure there are quite a few commercial pilots out there with only GCSEs but a lot will have had serious amounts of life experience before heading down the modular route or similar.

Seems Ollie has hit the nail on the head unless the funding situation changes. Some airlines seem desperate to attract people who haven't previously considered flying as a career, yet there's already bucketloads of people with the talent and motivation but sadly not the cash.

I don't see Aer Linus lowering their entrance standards. Oh wait, that's because it's full funded and they can take their pick of all the best applicants from across Europe.

As others have said, Easyjet are (admirably) keen on promoting equality when it comes to gender. When it comes to discrimination based on financial background they have precious little to say.....

Hi All

Note that selection has now changed for this. PILAPT is no longer used, as L3 have changed to Cut-e testing for all parts of selection.

Best of luck to all those applying this round.

2 months into ground school, and let me tell you, its tough going!

Cheers
