Same here. I look forward to it! :)

That'll be a good question to ask during the live Q&A tomorrow!

A question: Does anyone have an idea of when training starts?[/QUOTE]

That'll be a good question for the live Q&A tomorrow!

Hi there. If it's anything like last year, applications opened at the beginning of May 2016, and training start dates were staggered between about December 2016, and June 2017.

Thanks for the reminder! I hope the timing is good though.

Scotwings, thanks!

Kalvb123, thanks, good luck with stage 3! Do let us know how it went.

It would appear this scheme is being run in a similar way to the BA FPP where all schools share applicant data as the following now applies:


PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING RE-APPLICATIONS TO THE CTC WINGS GENERATION EASYJET PILOT TRAINING PROGRAMME. WE WILL ALSO NOT BE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM THOSE WHO HAVE APPLIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO OTHER APPROVED TRAINING PROVIDERS OF THE GENERATION EASYJET PILOT TRAINING PROGRAMME. Please be advised that easyJet will only be able to accept one application per person [regardless of training provider]
Best of luck all those planning to apply this time around.

s5147 27th Apr 2017 14:22

When they say that they will not be accepting re-applications does this mean that they will not be accepting applicant who were unsuccessful from previous years?

I'm relatively new to the scene and as such haven't applied before. Having read the above I'm concerned as to whether to apply now and see how I go, or wait until I'm in a more financially and educationally stable position before applying.

Any advice and guidance would be appreciated.

Chris the Robot 27th Apr 2017 16:26

Firstly, you need, from what I can tell, to be able to afford the programme, I've followed the 2016 thread loosely and I haven't seen much discussion around the loan guarantee that Easyjet says they offer to the strongest candidates. Perhaps the Q&A will have reveal how many received that funding last year?

Otherwise, it's a tricky one. On one hand, the industry would appear to be pretty strong at the moment though the potential impact from Brexit is unknown. On the other hand, if you wait and it opens next year with the same rule, a lot of very capable people won't be applying and there's only going to be so many people who are interested in the programme, able to afford it, yet very strong applicants.

For the record, I currently have no intention of applying since I'm on a totally different training programme altogether that has little to do with aviation.

ManUtd1999 27th Apr 2017 17:23

The facebook Q&A was quite informative. Loan guarantees appear to be on offer for "particularly outstanding" candidates. However, Flexicrew still seems to be in operation for UK based cadets. Rumours on here suggested is was being scrapped but this appears not to be the case....

Genuinley torn whether to apply. On one hand it's a great opportunity and the finance might be do-able (I'd apply on the basis of onyl accepting an offer with loan guarantee). On the other, 100,000 is a massive loan to have and a zero-hours contract doesn't offer much by way of financial security.....

Does anyone have any up-to-date figures on Flexicrew rates?

EGPF 27th Apr 2017 20:53

Thanks you very much for your insight Kalvb123! Best of luck to you as well.

As for comments about the 'zero hours' contract, there is no indication of this style of recruitment. After talking to the recruiters recently at my Stage 3 assessment, easyJet treat the flexicrew cadets the same as any other employee and I have no reason to believe otherwise.

The flexicrew contract only pays cadets by the hour when they are required to fly (or standby). You have no minimum hours and no salary if you're not needed for whatever reason. By definition, that is a zero-hours contract. As you point out, this only applies to the UK, but you don't get any say on your intial base.

It's good to here EZY treat their cadets well and makes the scheme more appealing. The fact remains though that if they removed Flexicrew and I knew they'd help out with a loan guarantee, I'd apply without hestitating. As it is, I'm really not sure.

I had a go with CAE but I was unsuccessful at stage 2 so, from what I can see, I am not allowed to apply to CTC this time. However, I am wondering why it is like this with CTC while with CAE it is still possible to reapply and resit stage 2 again as dates are available!! Any clue?

EGPF 27th Apr 2017 22:23

I don't think CAE have updated their information yet as on close inspection, the application page states;
"...stage 2 of the Assessment and Selection process taking place from October 2016. Enrolment for courses will commence from Spring 2017."
Could be a mistake though.

sara98 27th Apr 2017 22:46

I have just double-checked CAE website and in their "How to apply" section -> "Eligibility Requirements" they state "The programme is only open to new applications" but I know for sure that applicants who failed stage 2 six months ago can still reapply to resit it!!

gbotley 27th Apr 2017 23:41

@s5147 - Correct, although if you've previously applied to an EasyJet MPL before it was rebranded to Generation EasyJet then you are able to apply according to CTC.

@sara98 - Based on the last years intakes, CTC and OAA opened their schemes at different times.. so maybe OAA is yet to be considered in 'year two' of the program.. who knows?!

It would appear, from CTC's Q&A, loan guarantees are offered to those performing well compared with peers in selection but must also posses the required A levels or Degree too!

Sorry, what do you mean by that? OAA is currently recruiting cadets for the Generation easyJet!

And, as far as you know, has the restriction (no reapplications allowed) been imposed by easyJet or has it been introduced by CTC?

EGPF 28th Apr 2017 13:49

The re-application rule has probably came from easyJet as in the CTC page it says it won't accept re-applications regardless of which FTO you applied with.

EGPF 28th Apr 2017 14:29

Im not saying this is accurate but my answer to that is that they've not updated their information yet as said above.

They both lead to the same right hand seat in the same aircraft belonging to the exact same company.

Exactly! It's such a weird thing!
