Aer Lingus DEP 2019
 

From the EI website.
Only open for two weeks.
Good luck to all.

Over 100 pilot positions available as we expand with new aircraft and routes.

We’ve launched our latest pilot recruitment drive, with over 100 direct entry pilot positions available. Positions are open to qualified pilots, who, if successful, will join our flight team for an exciting and rewarding career, flying our modern aircraft, such as the Airbus A320/321 and A330, to over 80 destinations worldwide.

The pilot recruitment drive comes as we continue to expand, having recently announced our ambitious growth strategy that will see our North Atlantic fleet increase from 17 to 30 aircraft by 2023. The growth strategy will see significant investments in guest experience, brand, fleet, network expansion and our people.

Over the coming years, we’ll add the new Airbus A321neo long-range aircraft, giving successful pilots the opportunity to fly the longest-range, single-aisle aircraft in the world when introduced.

We already fly to over 80 destinations worldwide but is continuing to eye new opportunities across the Atlantic and within Europe. This will give successful candidates exciting travel opportunities.

We’ve a strong track record of supporting female pilots, employing twice as many compared with the international airline industry average. We are continuing to make a concerted effort to attract more female pilots and we encourage them to apply for a position to join our team.

Candidates should be highly motivated individuals who are committed to delivering our excellent service and who are tuned into the challenging commercial priorities faced by a value carrier in today’s highly competitive aviation sector.

Successful candidates will be offered a very competitive package, which includes an incremental starting salary and excellent benefits.

Our direct entry pilot application process is now open and will close on Friday, 28th December.

Applicants are invited to apply online via the Aer Lingus careers website

I just finished my application.
Who else is going?
Any ideas on time to upgrade to the wide body fleet?

I am currently based in Dublin, 3k hours on the airbus, 500 on the 737.


Good luck to all

Fadecwithnos 17th Dec 2018 15:48

Any idea regarding the assessment process?

shamrocky 17th Dec 2018 19:42

Currently approx 2 years to be senior enough to bid for the A330 Long Haul but the NEOLR is coming during the Summer so Long Haul will be available to all.
Same process as last year I heard.

Fadecwithnos 18th Dec 2018 18:45

Hello Shamrocky.

This will be the first time I apply for Aer Lingus.
Any ideas where I could find any material?

Regarding the upgrade, 2 years doesn't look that bad, any idea on the upgrade time to captain position?

shamrocky 21st Dec 2018 07:15

I heard from yesterdays roadshow they said its about 7 years at the moment.

daveandg 2nd Jan 2019 08:41

Anyone any ideas why the application window was extended? Insufficient uptake, or they suffered a technical glitch?

MCDU2 2nd Jan 2019 11:04

I wouldn't get too hung up on time to command or RHS 330. Its a veritable moveable feast at the moment with all of the recruitment and new aircraft coming online. A lucky few have seen the 330 RHS after just 2 years but the majority in the last while were 4-5 and the average before the "boom" was 6-8. Some people never saw the 330 before command came around.

7 years for command is stretching the truth it a bit. For next summer there are a handful of 330 copilots that would sneak in around that vintage that are going through the upgrade process at the moment or have recently passed the checks. There is something like 30 promotions planned for summer 2019 but the majority would be around the 10 year+ vintage.

Like all seniority based airlines its all about your date of joining.

shamrocky 2nd Jan 2019 12:04

I agree with MCDU2 but the A320 command positions next year include pilots that joined in 2012 so that brings it to 7 years ish

maverickflyer 3rd Jan 2019 09:18

Can anybody confirm if they suffered a technical problem or something? When i applied back in December I got this message: due to technical difficulties we were unable to send you a confirmation email at this time. I checked my application status yesterday and it says application received, however, i never got the confirmation email. Thanks!

Burger81 4th Jan 2019 16:41

Online assessments.
 
Anyone received invite to complete online assements for the first stage of the process?
Many ideas what in entials? The email states about a personality questionnaire as part 1, but just says about assessments related to the role including a short video. I would assume a number of ATPL theory questions, but is there any info as to other assessments & the video?

Cheers

CarlosBustos 4th Jan 2019 17:19

Got invited for that too, I guess part 2 would be same as Ryanair online assesment?

maverickflyer 6th Jan 2019 11:51

hi guys, the email doesn't specify if you need a mouse to do the online assessments?. Can anybody confirm if we need one or not? thanks!

Banana Joe 6th Jan 2019 12:00

It's Cut-E tests and you probably have to do the tube test (you fly through some rotating openings in a tube) and you need a mouse for that.

bowinris 6th Jan 2019 14:36

Hru,
you mind telling us what your experience is? Experience or low hours? Maybe there are ATPL type questions for low hours/non-commercial experience like the Ryr Cut-e tests?
Thanks
