pilotchute what is the difference between doing these MPL programs from programs offered by EagleJet International? Aren’t they both P2F ?
so why does it seem like doing it with eagle jet has a worse reputation?

this Emirates Pilot, which kind of P2F did he do?

Hi all,

I am planning to pursue MPL programme in Sharjah, UAE in 2021, can anyone advise me if my decision is correct or do I have to do some research on other flying schools in US.
Thanks for your guidance.

Hi.
I successfully passed stage 1 assessment (ADAPT), soon I'll be doing stage 2 of the enrolment assessment which is the panel interview. Please anyone who has been through the interview give me tips on how to tackle it especially the technical part, and please share your experience I'll be grateful and thankful.

I just looked up the cost of Alpha Aviation Academy. Not including food, accommodation and health insurance it's €180,000!!!

Are people out of their *"'#@&+ minds?????

So you get an MPL and 1500 hours and it's over 200,000 euro? Not a guaranteed job just a guaranteed 1500 hours.

I need to open an MPL school.

You should go for it ! I can introduce you to some of my countrymen in Lagos who will be very interested in doing more business with you

You will NOT finish this course in two years , you will be on the ground and with all these restrictions no one will open up for basic modular core flying.

it’s your money

It will be interesting trying to get the 1500hrs with hardly any flying going on, and what is available, would be used by the trained line pilots to keep current.
The current cadets trying to get the 1500hrs will be at the front of the line with all the other courses behind them. It will be a long time getting anywhere near the A320 with such a huge bottleneck in the training. Without that 1500hrs and only an MPL you are worthless to any other employer, and even with the 1500hrs you will struggle for a long time with the current glut of experience pilots worldwide.

Let us know which airline you eventually end up with. Anyone who can't punctuate and use sentences ... well, i'd rather not be a passenger with them on the flight deck. Thanks.

Its funny you should say that. On talk radio here today, there was some ‘ Academic’, explaining that some of our young snowflakes are finding full stops and commas offensive. And getting a full stop in a text message can cause them ‘ undue stress’. I kid you not!!!’

Where does this crap stop?? 😤

Crickey. Zero patience for these woke snowflakes that get offended by anything that doesn't fit their worldviews. A bit like our chap Ibra; comes on here asking for advice, gets said advice, and then gets his khandura in a twist because he doesn't like what he's hearing.

the delay is getting longer and longer just to complete the training. it took 3years around 2-3years ago. now my friend who joined 2016 hasn't started flying. he has been waiting for almost 5years and still doesn't know when to start. meanwhile the payment plan became worse and worse. the second officer contract changed as well.
they used to give 5000dhs per month from the first flight. the new contract says only after cover release (during line training you will need a cover pilot for around 4-5months). which means first 4months you won't get anything. now on top of it, they reduced from 5000 to 3500 per month and it is prorated, which means if you fly 15days, your salary will be 1750 only. they decided not to pay your off days. some cadets raised their voice about this unfair adjustment and alpha said this money is just benefit not the salary. if they want to stop giving them any benefit any longer it doesn't need to be given at all. and obviously it is written as a benefit on the contract. I wGMouldn't be surprised if they stop giving any money for 1500hrs. either paid or not, the cadets will want to finish 1500hrs for ATPL and maybe have to be thankful for the benefit if given.
the cadets are under alpha even after the graduation of school. Still being treated like a student and under the supervision of alpha.

training salary can soon be zero and much higher chance of being terminated before the course finishes

With this unprecedented delay, unfairness, false promises and ridiculously high fee, surprisingly there are still students registering this MPL course.
ever since the new management came and changed every single person at school, nothing has been better but getting extremely worse with new rules and regulations.

Has anyone experienced grooming check in any schools in the world? They do grooming check and ask ppl to keep the video on for whole day for the online classes. seriously don't understand what they get out of such. they are dealing with adults not kids.

1500hr isn't guaranteed with air arabia. Simply call them and ask. They might say 95% gets the contract bla bla bla but truth is different.

And you must expect anything worse than you imagine when you register this school. The delay all depends on alpha management and you will be just delayed without reasons regardless of your joining date.

Just sick of listening to ppl who are saying as if job is guaranteed.
