Well, that was my intention at first. But taking into consideration that for 17 months I wont be able to earn any money it might be bit close call on my savings especially if any non planned or hard to calculate expenses will arise.

Does anybody here been already there and can tell whats the price for accomodation? In case of integrated program where you rent a room for 17 months we might expect rent costs to be lower than monthly fee stated on their website - 450€.

Never thought I'd see the day I'd finally apply seriously to one of these programmes, but here we are! Just made the initial application today, will update if and when I am invited. Made my application to Egnatia, but I'd be happy with both. Will they only consider me for Egnatia if I selected that in my initial app?

Has anyone applied with a bachelor's degree? I'm in my final year and after emailing them directly, I found they'd be fine with starting after I graduate, but they were still a bit sketchy about it lol. Not hoping for it to do wonders for me, but hey, I guess it gives me something to talk about in the interview as my dissertation is on flight simulation.

Well... you should know that there was an option to pick 'i'm flexible' besides of picking one specific flight school. You've seen that, right? Then you have your reply - based on what you picked.

Ooops, that was very silly of me. To be fair, their application website was being very buggy and it took about 6 attempts on 3 different browsers before it actually worked, so I was just pumped to send it off by that point lmao.

Thanks for pointing this out, I guess I have more of a preference for Egnatia anyway and I'm in no rush to go to selection just yet, so I can finish my studies. All is good

I've picked Egnatia too. Looks like due to better weather conditions over south europe whole ATPL + CPL part takes 17 months vs 21 in Hungary.

ooooor maybe they are just organised better.

Hello guys, as you can see this is my first post, so I really need your help. I want to apply for the program and they have one question saying more or less “what it takes to be a wizzair pilot”. I don’t want this simple question to determine my career path or future. So from those who passed, if you can tell my what you wrote that would be very helpful.

I'd look up on google the numerous guides to writing motivational letters/cover letters for airline pilots. There isn't much you can do wrong, in my opinion, especially with how short (isn't it like 250 words?) the requirement is - especially as it's not asking for you to talk about yourself. I think it's mainly there to weed out people with really bad (or no) English, so make sure your spelling and grammar are fine. Pro tip - use something like grammarly to spot any obvious errors and, of course, get someone else to proofread it as well if you're worried about it.

Wait, what?

You want to be a pilot or writer? Where'd you find that you need to answer that question? Only thing they expect you to upload is your curicullum vitae.

Hey mate, tbh I don't think they have the time to read all the motivation letters. Eitherway, be sure you meet all the min criteria and let your interview performance be your motivation letter.

Me and a friend of mine are from Germany and will start this year in Egnatia.

Is there anyone who participated in the Flightschool in Greece? I just wanted to ask how are the chances to get kicked out due to the percentage you have to achieve during all exams? I am a bit scared of that and are there any other tips for those whole 17 months?

Hello guys,

I will start my Cadet Program from WizzAir at Egnatia this year. I just wanted to ask if someone done that before and could give me some tips. It is my dream job but i am a bit scared that the contract says that you have to accomplish a certain percentage at the exams and so on... so it is risky to fail the whole stuff and pay them the whole money back immediately. Any tips on how to learn or something like that? I would appreciate that.

By the way, i know that some people have their opinions about Wizz Air being bad or good, i won't judge that and i haven't worked for them so i cannot say anything but for example i have some friends who fly for LH and what i hear about the internal problems and other stuff sounds more worse to me then the stuff i hear about wizz.

Good Evening everyone.

I downloaded the program brochure and I have a couple of questions:

1) Page 14:[i]The total tuition fee of the Ab-Initio training is € 61460. This fee doesn’t cover costs such as remedial trainings, accommodation or travel expenses, nor the Advanced training or Wizz Air training are the advanced training and Wizz Air training to be paid by the cadet pilot? If so, how much?
So far, I've understood that one has to pay:
- Accommodation and living for the whole 17-21 months of training;
- 250€ for the three-days assessment;
- 14950€ [i]one-shot if the company chooses you;
- 46510€ when you start working, by deducing a monthly sum from the salary (like in the brochure);

2) Has anyone signed to a pilot insurance program such as Pilot SAAM or similar? What is the average premium to be payed for a trainee program?

Thanks !

Advanced training is a Type Rating - around 20k eur, wizz will pay for it and then deduct from a salary.

Yes, you got it right, but 13950eur, not 14950

Never heard of that insurance, can you give some links?
looks like trainees are payed around 2k after taxes and all deductions
