FTE Jerez and Vueling

Hi all,

I have recently been accepted onto the self-sponsored course at FTE Jerez however, the current waiting list means that the start date is in 2020. I was informed that whilst I waited, I could try to apply to airlines that use FTE to train their sponsored cadets. I have since applied to Vueling since the requirement to speak Spanish was dropped and I have been informed that I could be invited to interview in February with an April start date.

Would anyone be able to inform me of what working for Vueling is like and what it is like to work with Vueling (i.e. Base allocation, cadet starting wage, shift patterns, overall feel for the company) and if there are any real downsides of having an MPL if I have an OML restriction until 2023? I will also be applying to any other airlines that open up in the new year if FTE allows me to.

I am not interested in training elsewhere or going modular. Due to a situation with my FAA medical I was unable to commence training with CAE and since read into and got accepted into FTE. The whole application process of applying to somewhere else is too long and I am looking to commence training as soon as possible.

Many thanks in advance.

Christ!

I am considering applying to FTE bit hadn't anticipated the waitlist would be so long, out of interest, was it an early 2020 start?

Cheers

I am quite shocked as well! FTE is a big school and they have start dates throughout 2019, basically once per month.
How can the waiting list be so long that the first start date you were offered is in 2020?

(...and the thing is that the waiting list is not mentioned anywhere on their website)

The wait list probably isn't mentioned because it is very fluid. Airlines book spaces on certain course start dates but if they don't fill those places then they become available to others. Similarly, it's surprising how many people are assessed and pass assessment without realising the cost, or the full commitment required for flight training so they are given a start date and then pull out. Also those that manage everything well may have problems securing the money or their medical before the start date, so they're shifted back and others shifted forward.

For these reasons the wait could be 2 months to 8/10 but is unlikely to be the full length of time. Right now though there are a lot of airlines booking places for their cadets so self sponsored places are limited.

Hi everyone,

Has as anybody here recently attended the FTE assesment. I have one next month and I wondered about the verbal reasoning. I’ve read and heard about different things from the actual assesment it being different. I wondered what those who have recently been thought about it and genuinely the assesment process.

You’ve hit the nail on the head, my friend applied a few months ago and was given a start date of 2020 and he starts next week. Things change people leave and hence the last minute notice.
