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

Jeststream - I think they got too many applicants.

Does anyone know if they will release more dates for Interviews? I have passed my computer based tests and now need to prepare for interview. The only dates they have available is the 6th & 7th of November but I don't feel to be prepared to book any of these dates.
Is it only the application closed for new candidates or both, the application and the interview process for current candidates?

Thanks.

Congratulations passing day 1! You’re best bet is phoning the selection team and enquiring them about the situation with dates.

Hi EGPF - yes I am currently in the process with L3 and I've got the cut-e test day coming up in November.

Does anyone know how quickly they expect you to do the group/interview day following a successful cut-e test day?

Cheers

Hi ko12aai,

How soon were you told you'd passed the computer tests? Did they give you a mark or just a pass/fail?

Cheers

Im not sure how quick but with the program closed, I’d imagine there being limited dates available for now until the program reopens. The selection team are probably best to ask.

Also, you will get an email the next day saying if you passed or fail unless you sit your day 1 on Friday whereby you’ll have to wait until Monday to find out.

Faulty mouse at Dibden Manor?

Hi All,

Has anyone out there very recently been to Dibden Manor for the L3 / Easyjet Cut-e aptitude tests....?
I’m kicking myself for not querying it at the time with the L3 staff, but has anyone else found the mouse control for the ‘complex control’ / tube flying test really odd? Instead of the movement of the mouse in relation to the position within the tube being fixed/linear, it seemed graduated/exponential/erratic - i.e. a small movement of the mouse produced a small movement on the screen but if I continued moving the mouse in the same direction by the same amount it produced an exaggerated movement on the screen such that the sideways or vertical movement ‘accelerated’ across the screen/tube, causing me to crash all the time..... It seemed as if the sensitivity of the mouse was constantly changing....

As I say, did everyone who’s done this test at Dibden experience the same or was the control rate between your mouse and the screen constant / linear....? I got the e-mail to say I failed, but the crazy thing is I scored really well on all the other tests, even the ‘hard’ multi-tasking test, so it seems really odd to have failed on the one test most people say is the easiest (and one I had practiced fine at home)....?

If it seems one of their mouses / computers isn’t behaving properly, perhaps they’d look into it and invite me back to resit that test.....?

HELP !

Haven't done Cut-e at L3 but have done it with another airline. The behaviour of the controls in the complex control test that you've described sounds exactly the same as when I did it. Be careful of learning from the practice tests as although they emulate the real tests there are small details such as the behaviour in this test which they don't accurately replicate. Unfortunately I don't think there was anything wrong with your controls on the day, the test is just set up like that.

A good tip that someone gave me is to try the examples out a few times beforehand to get the hang of it before trying the real thing.

I believe that you have to pass all elements of the test to pass the whole assessment so even if you've done really well on the other tests, if you fail one element then you fail the whole assessment.

Thanks.
