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.

Hi everyone,

Has anyone attended the L3 easyJet MPL interview 1-1?
and if so, how many competency based questions were you asked?
+ Commercial awareness questions? & any other.

Thanks.

Hi All,

I passed the generation easyJet stage 3 at CAE last month. I got a mail the next day to say I’d passed but haven’t yet received my route allocation. We were told we’d get the allocation within a week, but still waiting a few weeks later. Was wondering if anyone else is in the same position or if anyone has received a route allocation recently?

Also interested to know from anyone that started on generation eJ recently as to how long it took from passing to actually start training. I still need to get my medical, financing pretty sorted, any other big blockers you have encountered?

Thanks,
F4F

I’m really hoping that the recent soft sales for this Summer at eJ aren’t giving them second thoughts on the number of pilots they’re going to need. Any thoughts?

What date was your interview?

Had my stage 3 on February the 5th, got the email saying I'd passed 6 days later and then route allocation about three weeks after but it varies a lot. From what I gather they can group two assesments together for route allocations so it may be you are waiting until the next assesment group gets their results.

Hi,

Congratulations on passing stage 3!

There were only 3 business days between being advised that I had passed the final assessment at L3 and my route allocation of EZY MPL.

This was back in January and the soonest I could get into an AME was 4 weeks. I often see mention of 4-5 week lead times for the big 3 AME's in the UK. I had 2 deferrals in which I had to wait a few weeks for appointments with specialists. I was then lucky that the CAA only took 3 days to review the reports from these deferrals and therefore their extra workload due to brexit does not appear to have impacted my class 1 application, overall the medical process took 2 Months. I have seen posts from other cadets where this timescale has run up to 5 months.

I would strongly suggest that you book your initial Class 1 medical as soon as possible. If you receive any deferrals then this will incur delay as you will have to wait for appointments with any relevant specialists. You will then need to account for the time that the CAA takes to review any such deferrals which could be a few days like mine or many weeks as reported by others. If you do not get any deferrals then you could have your Class 1 within 4-6 weeks, if you do get deferrals I would allow up to 3 months end to end.

The time it took me to get my Class 1 means I missed the March/April intakes at L3. I am now due to start in May. So pretty much 4 months from route allocation to start date.

Not sure if this is the correct place to write this but I’m soon to start with L3 at Coventry on CP215E. Anyone else on this course ?

Thanks to everyone who's posted on here, been really helpful. I have a question, how long do MPL pilots need to stay at easyjet before they can move to another airline?
