If their behaviour will affect mine and everyone else's capability to get a job thanks to $$$ and not personal merit, I have every right and every reason to judge them.
When you prostitute yourself you lower the bar for everyone else in your industry.
Im sorry but to me that makes no sense at all, yes its expensive but not that more expensive than the regular program with CTC or OAA, its basically saying that if some one went to harvard or yale to get good education and a probably good Future in his field, u can dudge him because his educatioost much more then yours and he'll get a job faster then you.

Thats life some people can afford stuff other can not and it will effect the way thier life and career will look like.
We the ones that are not privilege to have rich parents can either cry about if ot work hard to feel in the gap.
This program is very expensive but if some one decided this is the best rote for him, i cant judge him, in fact i have the out must respect for him, the same goes for some one who decided to go and do it in a modular rote as cheap as possible...

As much as I have always wanted to be a pilot, I'm not sure comparing flight training or indeed the profession itself to going to Harvard or to Yale is entirely an accurate comparison of what the two different paths provide an individual with. To the general public they may view having a pilot's license as equivalent to anything Harvard or Yale may give you, however to those in the know, they will admit that for the amazing job it is it is nothing out of this world as far as qualifications go. It's more along the lines of an apprenticeship and learning the skills of the trade than being similar to any academic achievements Harvard or Yale will provide an individual with.

it might not provide the same qualifications, and dont mistake im not comparing to job of a pilot to getting an harvard education.
im comparing the idea of paying more for your education in order to get the best chances of been employed after words.
in both case you're paying much more for the level of education while its very much possible to find high level education outside of CTC, OAA harvard or yal you wont get the links and the door that will be opened to you as a new comer to the industry.

ADAPT or Compass

Hi Everyone

Does anyone know what the testing system used for the CAE OAA EasyJet MPL aptitude assessment? I recently passed the Integrated ATPL selection process which I sat the ADAPT test, and was wondering if it's the same.

Thanks!

I'm currently at CTC on easyJet's Generation easyJet programme as a route 2 cadet. If anyone has any questions, I'd be happy to answer any that I am able to.

I'm not sure on my best options, do I go modular with the likes of ASW/ Aeros?

I've spoke to a financial adviser and hes not very helpful to be honest, both parents are too young for equity release. I feel my only option is to work myself for 3 months and apply for a mortgage? will a bank lend to a 22 year old wanting 109k for flight training?

I would be in a similar position financially if successful, let us know what easyjet come back with..

How long did it take for CTC to get back to you after you applied?
Is anybody on the course aged under 20?

I second what A320ECAM has said. The way the website is worded it is not clear whether the loan guarantees apply to any "exceptional" candidates or just the female-only scholarship.

At this point, they said that the airline had agreed, but disagreed
I'm not sure you can do both?

They did a U turn on it ... they probably saw it best hold off and look at the upcoming applicants. I guess there's no need for them to take on such a risk if they have a number of suitable applicants who can fund it themselves anyway.

Ugh that must of been a huge disappointment for the candidates. I guess personal merit doesn't really matter to easyJet....

It doesn't. Who has the deepest pockets is what it's about, and if it wasn't then they'd be offering something along the lines of the BA FPP. They can certainly afford it, more than BA ever could. This is just a matter of company principle.

For the love of flying? hmmmmm ... yeh ... the love is restricted to those with 125,000 though.

There are just two guys on my CP on the upgrade route. We are told the decision will be made after ground school.

As far as I am aware, the only guys who got the loan underwriting applied via easyJet's tagging talent scheme and were internal applicants. We don't openly talk about our financing of the course though, so there may be.

A few guys a younger than 20, ages range between 19 to mid 30s. Don't let age stop you from applying, but be prepared to work harder than you have ever done before.
