MPL Captain?

Hello following this thread with a lot of interest, have some questions:
does an MPL reach Captain in Easyjet MPL program?
after 1500 hours you’ll get a ATPL? Can you change to another airline or they don’t like this type of licence coming from a MPL program?
many thanks

An MPL is basically a CPL/IR but limited to multi pilot aircraft. After 1500 hours you can take an ATPL skill test to get an ATPL just like a CPL/IR holder can. Since an ATPL is a multi crew only licence - the only difference is your ATPL will not give you CPL or PPL single pilot privileges - you can only fly as a crew. In the airline world that doesn't matter. If you move airlines with an ATPL and time on type they probably won't give a **** whether you're integrated, modular, MPL or what your ATPL results were, all they care about is time on type.
Getting the licence is quite easy - actually getting promoted to captain is another matter and usually involves getting 3000+ hours, good sim scores and passing a command assessment, course and line training.

The issue is “probably won't give a ****” it’s not totally guaranteed, If one wish to go longhaul MPL Easyjet might be risky….or not?

Ok I'll go further. Definitely won't give a ****. Exams results and training schools only matter to your first employer, because they have nothing else to go on.

Hi AriPerriProw, I'm new to pprune so I couldn't message you directly. I have a start date in June this year '24 in LGW for the easyJet pilot cadet program. I'd be really keen to get some up to date experience/opinion and just a general chat about how the course is going for you and what to expect. If you can spare the time it would be great to hear from you. Thanks, KJBCFC. (Not sure if I can post my personal email on here , so I wont at the moment! KJBCFC )

Well done for getting a place but sorry to bring bad news....all the negative feedback on here is still true. CAE are a mess. Several MPL courses now finished ground school with no idea what happens next. As you read before, a course in Phoenix got send back to UK. Absolutely no communication from CAE. They offered whitetail cadets money to leave the course. I doubt youll find a single CAE cadet happy with the way things are going. I really hope CAE can sort out the mess and maybe they will by the time you finish groundschool but this has been going on for months and there is little sign of it improving so far. if you have other options, take them and finish training quicker. If you have specific questions feel free to ask.

Thank you for sharing your insight. I find myself in a similar situation and want to make sure I make an informed decision, especially considering the money involved. I appreciate that your post is recent. However, I am curious to know if CAE is taking any steps to address this situation, or if there are no signs of improvement yet? Also, I am wondering if this issue is specific to easyJet MPL cadets or if it is a general issue affecting whitetail cadets as well? Thank you.
