Flybe MPL Selection at FTE

Hi fellas,

If someone has applied for the MPL at FTE, have you been contacted already by them? They said they will get in touch with candidates in the firsts months of 2020 but I was wondering about if someone has received an email or something.

Thanks guys

Rpm25 I'm in the same position. Due to start in April but not heard from school or airline yet. Chased up for some credible info from management on the state of the course but waiting for a reply.

I've already been caught up in the TCX collapse 3 months ago, losing my training position on their course. This is a right kick in the nuts now 🙄

Yeah I got a reply around 20th December inviting me to a stage down in Exeter. No correspondence since then...

I was selected for the Flybe MPL just before Christmas, with L3 (due to start in New Zealand in March). I was told during the assessment day presentation that if successful we would be able to take our conditional job offer from Flybe to any prospective lender, to help secure the funding required for the training loan - however I have asked my liaison at L3 when I am going to receive this and they said that you normally don't receive the letter of intent from the airline until after organising the funds and securing the place on the course. Doesn't really make sense to me why the letter would come AFTER organising the funds, when it is supposed to help secure the funding in the first place...

Anyway regardless of this, I am more than likely going to opt out of the MPL scheme. I had asked the school what would happen should Flybe go bust whilst on the MPL course and they couldn't guarantee I would be moved on to the standard ATPL wings programme. In essence my parents could lose their home and I could end up unable to finish the training if the airline goes bust - and yes, any airline could go bust during training but with Flybe it is far more likely than say Easy or BA, given the latest turn of events. For that reason I can't help but think it is foolish to proceed and risk my parents' home in the process.

Would be interested to hear from any of the others that were selected, in the same position!

There are flight school desperatly looking for instructors. Go get your instructor ratings and go teaching as it has always been the normal path .MPL Is a joke...you will not be a pilot just a seat warmers with no clue something out of the preset scenario should happen.
Beside instructors now make more money than FO....and you learn a lot more than the P2F scammers want you to imagine.

Someone is either very bitter or does not have a clue what they are talking about!
