Parkfell, I’m a Polish citizen and at the time when I was applying for the WAPA programme, I have been living in the UK for over 8.5 years.
At no point have I experienced any issues related to it, neither during application nor during the training itself - your Polish citizenship is more than enough and you simply don’t need any other residency card.
If anything, solid English language skills you gained there might help you to achieve ICAO English level 5 (lifetime aviation English cert) and definitely some subjects will be easier for you to comprehend.

Hawker400, I believe this is not a discrimination but rather a restriction originating from the loan issuing subsidiaries. I might be wrong, but it’s probably something similar to e.g. German bank not being too keen on giving 45k loan to a Polish who just appeared in their country without any track record, banking history etc. - simply too little of debit collecting power for them to have enough assurance they’ll see their money again.

IMHO, if you hold a Polish passport, then just tell them you're living in Poland too. How they're going to check? Ask for address? Okay, then rent a flat there for a while. Simple as that.

Cadet registration

Hey ladies and gents!
I have received my first email about the cadet program registration link with WizzAir. Any documentation needed? I wouldn't want to access it, they ask for documents or CV and I'm not prepared. Would be a big bummer. Help, please !
thanks a million!

The program has changed the requirements, now they are accepting from all EU countries, this is from their website.
"You have unrestricted right to live, work and study in the European Union or in any Wizz Air base countries"

Oh great... When I was trying to apply, it was restricted to people holding Polish, Hungarian or Romanian citizenship only. 1.5 months after joining just a simple light school the Wizz academy is "open for everyone"

hid3;

Thanks very much for your detailed post, very useful. I have interview on the 8th of December and I wasn't sure which apps to use to prepare. I'll give a shot to Skytest and LPJ, eventually.

Hey ladies and gents, is there any cabin crew/ex cabin crew applied for the programme and could tell us if the assessment is different at all, as they've already been in the aviation industry? Maybe technical questions? Higher expectations from the interviewers?

Hello everyone, does anyone know if you need a Hungarian Class 1 Medical to attend Trener and a Greek Class 1 Medical to attend Egnatia? Or can the Class 1 be from any country? Thanks!

Hi there,
You need a ĎClass 1 EASA Medical issued by your home country or country of the training providerí, it can be any country if it is EASA.

How many people have actually been accepted? I live in the USA so it'd cost me $5000 to do assessment + medical but this program seems like a pipe dream for the most part.

itís unlikely for them to accept people from outside EU plus non-EU countries in which Wizz has bases

Yep, true. Because you must have full civil rights to freely live, work and travel accross EU without any restrictions. So basically this means you must be holding EU passport.

not exactly that way. They also accept people for example from Ukraine and Macedonia. So Wizz is aimed to hire those from not very rich countries as far as i understand

Hi! Does anyone knows some sites where I can train for my first math / phys. exams? Is the SkyTestģ Preparation Software for Middle East Pilot Screenings good to train my math / phys. ?

Also, are they really trying to help you there, instead of letting you fail?

Thanks!

Skytest is a high recommendation, top 3 of the best ones, for WizzAir preparation, Middle East version does the job.

We all wish we knew if they actually try to help you during the assessments or not, and this we can only know from someone who's already been through the process and can give us some details.

with all the information i managed to gather from different sources iíve made a conclusion that they donít try to help nor make you fail, they just try to select those who fit their internal requirements and itís simple as that.
BTW, is there anybody having their assessment in November?

I was not talking about the interview. I was trying to find out if during the 2+ years training they will help you and guide you, instead of letting you fail the exams. We all know that there are 2 different types of teachers, the type that is doing their best to fail you, and the one that always help you, and even if you are not that great, they give you a pass mark.

Hope that you understood what I was trying to say. Thanks!
