Given they had a hold pool of applicants from last year are the expected number of places lower this year? Last year was 18 or so I think.

The hold pool last year was for Direct Entry Pilots and not for cadet entry.

Looking in the old thread (https://www.pprune.org/interviews-jo...ture-pilot-pro)


They are currently making offers for extra places for people who didn't make the original eighteen places in november/january last year but did get to the final round of the process. People who didn't get one of those places were told to expect the 2019 program to start in September.

My advice is to not apply as a male candidate. They are already advertising on facebook that last year only 7% of applications were by females and they want more this time.

So if you want to boost the chances i suggest you list yourself as female, if someone asks anything say you identify as female.

That is incorrect.

I find them opening this scheme up very interesting. Six weeks ago, after being led along for six months, I was informed by the Aer Lingus recruitment team that my place in the hold pool was no more, as they werenít opening it this year. Fair enough. Few weeks later and theyíre taking applications for the 2019 edition.

Good to see Aer Lingus still doing things the right way and offering a fully funded course, they'll have their pick of all the top candidates as a result. It just goes to show that it can be done whilst still meeting IAGs expectations and making healthy profits. If only other airlines would take note......

Can anyone confirm the length of the bond? The article below says itís 10 years. I havenít found that anywhere else.

Maybe someone has information from the last year...

Thanks guys!

I understand it was 7, that was 2 yrs back so could be outdated info.

Without wishing to sound like a pain though, that's not a question you should be asking if you really want this programme.

Aer Lingus want people who will wear that hat until their hair turns grey. This really isn't the programme to apply to if you want to just train and then leave. If a bond is an issue for you it's best to look elsewhere cos this won't go well.

I got the "Unable to send email at this time" error on the day I submitted which I read happened last year too, but still haven't received any email acknowledgement of my submission. I'm not worried as when I log in it says "Application Received" but just wondered if anyone had been sent an acknowledgement yet??

Thank you A320LGW. I understand and fly somewhere else already anyway. Iím just asking for friend of mine. She wants to start a family at some point and she is worried it may be not possible to take a maternity break during the bond period.

That won't be an issue, aer lingus are one of the most pro female pilot airlines out there. The bond will be irrelevant to getting maternity leave, it will only be brought up if you want to leave the company.

Can anybody recommend a Pilapt test to practice with. There are so many to choose from.

If they are still using cut-e for the aptitude testing then I would recommend latest pilot jobs. I used that and was successful in getting a place on another cadet program.

The only thing that it is poor at simulating is the monitoring test. Depending on how much you're willing to invest Skytest (Asia pack) simulates this well but is pretty pricey just for one test. I got both but figured the investment pays off if you're being fully funded for the training!

Tubular_belle 5th Jul 2019 10:10

Thankyou very much. I shall look into that. Much appreciated.

Am Dizzy 6th Jul 2019 00:45

Can anyone tell me how long we have to wait after submission of the applications

Mariagrazia 6th Jul 2019 08:58

Hello everyone,
Sorry for the silly question, it's my first application with AL..
I sent my application yesterday morning, as far as the status is concerned on the Aer Lingus website it says "Application received", but I didn't receive any mail from them. I read that I'd be receiving a mail acknowledging they'd received my application. Did I get that wrong? Did it happen to any of you too?
Thanks!

Hello all,
I am a physio at the moment but I am married to an ATC and have always had an interest in aviation so I have bitten the bullet and applied! Who else has?

ComplyWithMe 8th Jul 2019 16:59

I'm a 30-year-old accountant who missed the deadline last year as I didnt know about it! I've been waiting all year for this to open up again this year. Its all I can think about since it re-opened :) fingers crossed!! There's a long few months ahead of waiting I would imagine!

Fingers crossed for you!

I'm the same, says application received but no email confirmation. Interestingly I withdrew my first application as I'd attached the wrong CV and I had an email to say application withdrawn. But second application is the same, just says received!
