Hi guys,
I know it might sound like a dumb question but if any of you can clear this up for me I would appreciate it.

I just saw one of the requirements was be eligible to work and live and work in EU/Ireland. As a British Passport holder do I say yes or no?

Thanks in advance

Ireland and the UK have a Common Travel Agreement meaning people with UK passports have free access to live/work in Ireland so you can answer yes!

Hey guys,

anyone that’s been through this or have any insight:
is there a preferred age for a cadet? Being a pilot has been a dream of mine but unfortunately funds were an issue. I’m a licensed aircraft engineer and have a few years aircraft leasing experience but worry that I’m too old for the program.
secondly, placement after the 14 training, how does this work? Are you automatically based in Dublin? I’m living on the west coast so just wondering if you are assigned on circumstances (I.e married with children, single etc)

They have previously taken on very switched on individuals with little or no flying experience (of course, there are always exceptions), after a very rigorous assessment process. May the best make it through and do so on merit alone. Good luck everyone!

There is no age limit as to do so would be ageist and against Irish legislation. There is a minimum age due to applicable licencing age with the IAA. They have certainly taken people on well in to their 30s previously, if not older.

As said elsewhere above, they have usually taken on people who have shown commitment and determination throughout their lives/careers to date. I imagine they want low risk people who are technically minded with more than a solid chance of passing the difficult course in Jerez. Flying experience is not necessary, but an interest would help etc

For salary, direct entries if I recall started on €77k, but cadets will definitely be on lower than this I would imagine. Maybe someone can clarify. Also not known what the "small allowance" while in Jerez would be.

Hi guys,

just sent my CV off today, I would’ve thought thought we have a proper online status checker to see if our application has been received or not. They’ve only done online forms to fill out attaching your passport and CV. I’m guessing they’ll be choosing the best experience educational background before sending out online assessments.

I did mine, there's about 9 different tests. Pretty standard like basic maths, some fun ones like a game where you have to fly though holes without crashing and a multitasking one where you have to solve 3 different tasks every 10 secs.

Good luck everyone, hopefully this the start of more schemes to come from across the sector.

I applied but not very confident. I don't have this "Leaving certificate" nor GSCEs / A-Levels as I studied abroad. I do hold a Mechanical Engineering degree thou. Hopefully they will take into consideration...

Application process

Hey guys,
can anyone shed light on whether there is any particular application questions that might take some preparation as part of the 1st stage online application? Or is it literally just submitting your CV?
By application questions I mean: “why do you want to be a pilot for Aer Lingus” in 300 words type thing where we’ll need to prepare an answer…
Just curious as to if it literally is just submitting a CV or if there are application questions to go with it prior to the next stage of online assessments?

are we allowed to use either a draft paper or a calculator for the maths ?

it’s just basically submitting CV and basic questions such as nationality and qualifications, flying experience etc.
