Flybe MAPS FTEJerez (2020)

Hi all,

Has anyone applied to the latest Flybe MPL with FTE? I have just heard back with an invite to Exeter in the last week of Jan/first of Feb.

Details are very limited: what are we to expect at this stage in assessment?

I am also very keen in the BA CityFlyer MPL which I am hoping will open for applicants around April/May again. I assume results from this process will he kept separate and have no impact on a CFE application?

Good luck to all who have applied and, of course, happy new year!

Hi Lance,

I applied on December 18th, application still hasnít been reviewed, very frustrating. Just out of out of interest how long did it take for you to get a response?

I believe there is a free stage 2 preparation pack available online

Hi Jack -

What is it telling you in the Candidate Portal?

I applied & completed the application on the day it opened. Canít exactly remember when but it was around mid-November. I received a response on the 20th December, so a month give or take.

My candidate portal hasnít changed but I received an email which went into my Junk folder, so perhaps you should check there (I only found it yesterday!).

I hope itís good news!

Hi Lance,

Thanks for the pointer, just checked spam folder and no updates. Candidate portal is as it was when I finished uploading.

Could be because they are closed until 8th January will have to wait and see.

Hey guys!

I have received a reply today so don't get stressed if you don't have an answer yet. I have been in another selection process and I can tell you that they always answer, so it is a matter of time.

Hope see you soon!

Thatís good to hear!

Is it the generic replying inviting you to stage 3? I received this a few weeks ago but no exact dates given yet.

In my case I have to wait until stage 3 finishes. As I have already done the assessment my results are sent directly to Flybe and they decide if I am a good candidate for the final interview.

Kind regards!

Hey guys,

Have you read the last news about Flybe? It seems that they are near of collapse. If we are finally selected I don't know what our perspectives will be, or even if we will have perspectives, what do you think about?

I havenít heard anything from FTE... so I am assuming it is business as normal again, as Flybe have just been saved for the meantime.

That is something I was going to ask you about, I have seen this many other times, companies which drag themselves some years, but finally they can't survive. Obviously, I wish the best to Flybe and I want them to be the exception, but statistically I think to invest 100k in working in this company it is almost a suicide. In my case, I would be supported by my family and I have to be extremely cautious. I think I will stay in this process a bit more to know if there will be any guarantee, but most probably I will leave it. What do you think?

I know Thomas Cook cadet who was also at FTE when they went under, and he has just graduated with an ATPL in December. So you wonít lose your money.

The Ďsuicideí aspect would be if they go under during your first 1,500 hours of flying for the airline... Iím not so sure what would happen there, especially with an MPL.

That is the thing... I trust on FTE Jerez, but not that much on the prospects of Flybe, and that could be a huge honeytrap, you get your MPL, the airline goes down and you are left with an immense problem after having paid all that money. It is a very risky situation. I have read that Flybe owes, only to the British Government, 103MÄ in airport taxes, although Government is going to give them some years to pay it, we need to take into account that we are talking about a broke airline, I think that is a too big burden.

I decided today that I will not go on with Flybe programme; there are to many unknowns. Look at it realistically you want to be looking forward to start you first pilot job instead of worrying about the fact that the company is alive or not when graduating. Imagine you do get a job you need to get 1500 hrs as a MPL-er .. at this stage Flybe can not offer that guarantee... be wise 100k is a lot off money !! try to save 10 k then you know how hard it is to save 100k....

FTE dont have too many programs at the moment its a pitty ... so good luck with the decision !

Not a good time to start by the looks of it !

I agree with your decision and I will also withdraw, but for the interest of all of you, the MPL of Vueling is going to open in the next week, and that opportunity is a REALLY good opportunity, so we will see each other there!

Do you know whether or not FTE allow more than one active application at a time?
