Mypilotix

Apparently they assist pilots and request a fee to do so. Anyone got any experience with this company?

“Caveat Emptor ~ due diligence”

In common with all middle men, the customer needs to be entirely satisfied that they will receive value for money.
Desperation is a common quality for those who think others will find utopia on their behalf.

If you have the necessary qualities, you are perfectly capable of applying yourself.
If your training record is less than impressive, then don’t except a magic wand will be waved by your “fairy godmother”.

I wouldn't recommend paying for anything like that. If you know what area of aviation you want to work in simply make a CV and start applying everywhere.

If you are going to spend any money use it for a respected interview preparation course.

It says they've been working since 2015 but the site was only registered 51 days ago.

I have a friend who contracted their services as a newly qualified pilot. So far she paid around 250 euros and was promised an interview with an eastern European low cost. She said she would go straight to a sim assessment and if after a year they have not found a place for her they would refund most of her money back. I am very skeptical to be frank and I would not recommend their services yet, as I believe so far it could be all a scam as my friend haven't got anything real yet. I'll post updates here if/when I get more information from her.

I contacted them, that looks like a real scam everything goes only by email no papers at all they make you fill out a document which does not look legit.

They guarantee you an interview if you pay them within.... a year if not they refund you stay away !

Have you heard of your friend recently? Has she participated any interviews & simulator test?

Good morning Guys,

I have requested some info by them and I agree with you, it's very strange. I didn't pay nothing for the moment.
They wrote me only via mail, there's no a phone number, the adress...Nothing…
I'm concerned to continue with this people… Unfortunately i shared with them my personal data (address) and I'm considering it has been a big bullshit I did...

They are very slow in answering sometimes and they make you wait a lot.
Waiting time are extremely long as I had to wait up to 8 months to get the first interview.
They promised me two interviews and so far they delivered as I attended both.

And the outcome of these interviews? Job offers? Start date?

Those who are capable will succeed without ‘external help’.
Those with a less than impressive track record / desperate / vulnerable / gullible need to be very careful when contracting with a middle man. You need to determine the veracity of their credentials.

Could you give more info please? Which airlines did you go interviews with? How about the interviews?

In my opinion it's better stay away from them: there's nothing about this "agency" on internet and all the users, that are talking about this, are always "new users" with only 3/4 messages on the forum. I tried to ask a phone number to make a call and they denied me saying me to contact only via mail ...
