As regards Aer, still waiting:

Applied 31st July, received test invitations 1st Aug, sat tests 4th Aug.

I don't remember much about the tests - I sat similar for LEAP+FI and didn't get anywhere, I wonder if this suite is what Jerez like to use? Most frustrating one was the "nav" test with instruments - after the example questions, I didn't understand how the results were reached! Everything else seemed reasonably fine. Shall find out soon enough ... good luck all, remember there is Speedbird and TUI coming up, and who knows what else
Jerez use the Cut-e suite of tests too. Did them last year for the FTE Jerez Scholarship and were more or less the same as these ones

Made a call.
All first round regret emails are sent.
nothing further until late next week at the earliest. Invitations to assessments start then too but will take 10 days to make all those calls. They seem thrilled with the standard of entrants.

you canít apply with ATPLís done, only as far as PPL done!
I have heard of cases of some people having some ATPLís done, but donít think they will be taking anyone with all ATPLís completed

Quite the opposite, two people I know personally have PPLs and were rejected, a lady over on the Facebook group has deferred ATPLs and was also rejected.

It seems Aer Lingus is really looking for diversity and interesting backgrounds over hours flown. Which is great, in my opinion, these schemes should be aimed at extremely talented individuals that aspire to be pilots but are hindered by the financial barriers of learning to fly. If youíre already in flight school or at your ATPLS/Have licenses, I wouldnít think aer Lingus would favour these in anyway. Just my two cents.

i have noticed some people who have studied ATPLs get other cadet programmes which am a little surprised about because surely they will have to restart all over again? I know a girl who does have an ATPL but is on a cadet programme and yeah it doesnt make sense to me but the cadet programme obvs didnít I mind

It is really confusing when there is so much talent being held back by the financial barriers of aviation. It would seem obvious to me that the whole point of these funded schemes is to allow those low income individuals to get into this world, and to alter the whole stigma behind pilots coming from rich backgrounds. Ah well, letís hope aer Lingus is different to those other cadet providers !

i think if am completely honest, I am not going to get my hopes very high for my applications to be successful this year. This application process is very new to me and itís been a great experience to learn and even speaking to you guys has been so helpful I canít even explain. I think from here forward I know what I must practice and thatís definitely the online CUT E assessments etc. thanks guys for sending website and YouTube reccomendations!!! Super helpful but yeah I think this year isnít gonna be my year cause am a wee newbie from Scotland lol however I am defo gonna be even more prepared
