What happened... if anything.... to these student pilots ordered to return to Bahrain?
Did they go back? or did they get given UK residency and pilot jobs with BA?

Absolutely nothing has occurred to them! They've been allowed to resume their training like if nothing has happened! That was 3 months ago anyway!

Jobs with BA?! You must be kidding, right?

How could anything happen to them? The majority are paying for their own training with no guarantees at the other end.
i.e. Good luck to them.

I agree with you Che... But if you think about it from Oxford's point of view... GAA is the sponsor i.e they pay Oxford to train the guys.. So whatever the sponsor says, Oxford has to follow! Pure business mate!

I'm thinking of applying soon. It's with PTC now not Oxford. just wondering, how do you prepare for the selection process? I know you have to pay around 200BD to take the test, so I don't want to go there clueless.

Seems someone is spamming the forum with Alpha Aviations MPL course. Don't touch this course until the airlines accept the licence. At the moment it's an unknown quantity and won't get you a job. Do your research and choose wisely.

You sound like a salesman in a cheap suit selling junk licences for Alpha. The MPL is not a viable option. Too expensive, too experimental, too risky! Downturn throws MPL pilots on scrapheap

At the end of the day the MPL is a risky undertaking, and given the fact it costs as much as a CPL or even a frozen ATPL, whats the use???

Since when did a bunch of pictures on Facebook become the results of an audit? RP-C000 give up the cheap marketing. I don't think you're fooling anyone anymore. The MPL is a failed experiment, banished to the boneyard of bad aviation ideas.

is like saying mankind will never fly !

RP-C000 give up the cheap marketing.
if it hurts you dont watch it...free speech ! you have the right to your opinion I have the right to mine backed up by facts.. the fact is that cadets are under training at AAPA for the core flying and return for sim training to AAG UAE is proof that the course is GCAA approved and AAG has passed all audits and mistakes of the past are now being fixed..

Level 3 english there RP??? It is a financial waste of time when a frozen ATPL or CPL (which allows you to pursue the employer of your choice)...why would ANYbody go do an MPL without and CONFIRMED employment.....doing a self-sponsored MPL is risky.....

AAG & Air Arabia MPL offers employment after successful completion of the MPL course.
ABY's requirement is for 60 MPL cadets every year..

RP, the MPL is a scam and anyone who does even a little research knows it. Spend the money on a CPL and get a real job with a real airline, simple as that. Everything else is a pale and almost useless imitation. At least three of the posters here are experienced airline Capt's who know what they are talking about. You on the other hand are only interested in liberating innocent candidates from their hard earned cash. Shameful!

one of the Sr Capt's from Gulf Air his son is a cadet with the AAG & Air Arabia MPL programme... so I guess he must be wrong too..

just how Lufthansa and other major airlines who run MPL programmes are all wrong and plan to run a failed concept...

If the airline is running it, AND they are sending cadets who are already chosen for the course by said airline BEFORE they attend said course, thats another matter...the comment was "self-sponsored"..(english reading again)...if one has an airline contract IN HAND BEFORE attending the course..its an entirely different matter...
