Wizzair vs Qatar vs Easyjet

I'm about to apply for an integrated ATPL program and i was given various choices :
MPL in partnership with Qatar Airways
Generation easyJet Pilot Training Program
Integrated ATPL in partnership with Wizz Air

In all 3 choices I am guaranteed an Employment as a co-pilot on completion of aircraft type rating training(A320).

I also have the choice to do an integrated ATPL without partnership and at the end of my course i would be placed into a pool where i would be given application offers from : Virgin, Qatar, DHL, British airways, Easyjet, Monarch, Jetstar, Aegean ect.

My question would be, which one would worth it the most in the future?
Thank you for the help.

Perhaps start by applying to all of them (if they are at different FTOs / or multiple applications permitted) and see which you are successful with and go from there

Make sure you know what they mean by "guaranteed". Read any small print VERY carefully. There will most likely be a get-out clause on their behalf somewhere in it.

Nothing is guaranteed. That's the first step. If you understand that you aren't guaranteed it then you'll not be setting yourself up for a shock. The conditional offers of those programs are just that. Conditional. Each airline has differing criteria which have to be met throughout training in order to keep that offer and some are more strict than the rest. The same applies to Integrated (Whitetail) courses as if you don't meet the grade throughout your training then I can assure you the likes of easyJet et. al. will lose interest rather quickly!

Despite this though, my tip would be to research each of the schemes individually to see what each of them actually offers you. Yes, granted the majority are MPL licences, however look beyond that to the quality of life post-graduation. Do you wish to work in Europe on the A320 or in the Middle East on the same. If the latter how would you feel given the change of culture in Qatar, for example? I'd also say you need to be realistic given the cost of these courses and think about if you could afford to meet any loan payments on the eventual salary of said airlines. I say this as Eastern European carriers are well-known for paying relative to the cost of living at your eventual bases which translated to Sterling or Euro may not even come close to any loan balance. Finally, do you want short haul, or long-haul? Ultimately putting thought into these will help you make your decision naturally. With this said though, if a scheme that aligns itself to you happens to be open then you'd be silly to not give it a shot as, an offer - despite conditional, is already better than that us Whitetail lot have. Equally, if you don't meet the airline selection criteria you may well qualify for Whitetail anyway.

That's my two cents.

Hello!

Where are you going for the integrated ATPL for Wizz Air? What about the Generation easyJet?

Why would you want to do ATPL without partnership if you could do it with an offer from the airline at the outset?

1) Nothing is guaranteed.

I also have the choice to do an integrated ATPL without partnership and at the end of my course i would be placed into a pool **where i would be given application offers from** : Virgin, Quatar, DHL, British airways, Easyjet, Monarch, Jetstar, Aegean ect.
2) I also have a chance of becoming a millionaire if i put 500k on red.

Wizzair vs Quatar vs Easyjet
3) Learn how to spell Qatar.


In all seriousness these are 3 very different training programs and require a significant investment both financially and personally. I'd recommend you do a bit of reading. My advice would be try the easyJet scheme, it's pretty well trodden. But i'm bias.

I may be wrong but have you just looked at a ctc or oxford magazine, see all the logos of airlines where they claim their ex cadets work and assumed as soon as you finish training with the school you are offered to try each of them? You are sorrily mistaken if that is the case.

Safest route is to not train unless you have an airline who offer you an employment contract (with conditions of course)
