Can anyone confirm that someone with some ATPL exam passes is not allowed to apply? Didn't see that mentioned anywhere

I am not 100% but I think if you go to the FAQ section of the future pilot page, there was a part about having ATPLs and Licenses. Cant remember if they were permitted or not though.

on Aer Lingus FAQ

I have a CPL/MPL/ATPL already. Can I apply?


No. Unfortunately, you are overqualified for the course. Aer Lingus also run Direct Entry Pilot campaigns for pilots with these qualifications periodically.

Having an ATPL and ATPL exams done are 2 different things!

Also on the website:

I have completed some/all the EASA exams already. Can I apply?

Answer:
Yes. However, you will still need to complete all ground school elements of the course and sit all school exams and progress tests. It should also be noted that Aer Lingus requires higher pass marks than EASA

They have definitely taken people in the past with ATPL exams done, I know a couple personally. Because it's an integrated MPL course they still have to redo all the ground school though to achieve the requirements of the licence. As far as I remember they just didn't have to do the actual ATPL exams but still had to do all internal school exams and mocks etc

Hey, I completed the online assessment in August and haven't heard anything from Aer Lingus since then, so I am curious. Has one of you received a confirmation email after the assessment took place?

This is from the 'Education' section of the FAQs:

Q: I have completed some/all the EASA exams already. Can I apply?

A: Yes. However, you will still need to complete all ground school elements of the course and sit all school exams and progress tests. It should also be noted that Aer Lingus requires higher pass marks than EASA.

Youre hired based on your ability and luck in the process and nothing else. Income etc has no impact on that. A PPL costs about as much as an average used car in the UK and it shows you do have the aptitude to fly. I must stress though, its not a must have.

I was part of recruitment on a similar scheme a long time ago for another airline.
Based on the applications we saw, either people came out of school with excellent results or older people with already very successful well paying careers. We looked for driven people and solid education or another high flying career showed us you have the ability to complete the course. The ATPL exams are very challenging. Ever think about having to figure out headings using trigonometry over a globe?
They require you to learn a vast amount of material in a very short space of time and AerLingus want 85% minimum in each instead of the ATPL pass of 75%.
If you are capable then you likely are already successful in education and/or a career. Neither are a must but it was a huge factor for us.

Many drop out of training during ATPL theory on both integrated and modular courses and thats a huge risk for a sponsored scheme.

Even just taking a discovery flight and knowing some basics about how planes work will help. Also having a Class 1 medical was good to see as that is a concern and we did have some candidates fall down at that stage.

I reckon they are going through applications last to start - regarding online tests, CV and questionnaire.

Speculation is going to wind you up. At this stage no news is most definitely good news. Good luck.

Try not to get your hopes up. Even though some rejections have gone out it's likely there are still a few thousand people waiting. The best attitude for these is to expect to never hear back, even after the assessment days.
