CAE easyJet MPL feedback

Feedback from current CAE/easyJet MPL cadets might be useful in deciding which school to apply to.

Sticking just to facts, whitetail ATPL cadets are being offered £2500 to terminate their training contracts as CAE can't resource flight training. MPL courses are being delayed by months (6+ months and counting). Cadets in Phoenix being sent back to the UK with cadets out of pocket on any accommodation. Feedback on ground school is poor and flying even worse.

easyJet recruiting ATPLs from other schools as CAE can't train their MPLs. Likely to continue for a while as CAE simply don't have the capacity to deliver the MPL programme. It feels like CAE are falling apart and cadets are miserable across the board.

easyJet genuinely seem like a good company to work for, so if that's your aim weirdly you may get their quicker outside the MPL programme.

Just made an account to ask about this course as I had interest in it. Thats a shame, sounds like a waste of time... I requested more info about the training a week ago from CAE but no response.

Are there any other alternative was to have an almost guaranteed job, that you fund yourself (which isn't funded by the airline where you have to fight 10,000 people for the spot?)

Use your money to go modular. Get your PPL then IR(R) and hour build IFR on proper flight plans with instrument approaches into airports. Land a PA28 in Schiphol in IMC. These MPL courses are a lot of fluff. With modular, after 45 hours you'll be pilot in command. Get your IR(R) afterwards and it will put the hair on your back. Single pilot IFR in actual IMC would make most of the airline guys cry. MPL guys would crap the bed having to land a Cessna in Duxford.
The big schools want your money and nothing else.
All it takes for modular is a 30 second phone call to a local flying school or club to book a trail flight and you're off. By the time the integrated students are logging their first hour, you'll be busy flying over to France, Belgium and Germany for lunch, shooting an ILS into Southend on your way back.

What about the integrated course FTEJerez?

Iíve done 20 hours of modular flying back in New Zealand where Iím from. Working in Europe at the moment and trying to decide where Iíd like to actually do my flying and try to get into the airlines. Iíve got a UK passport, although NZ is great I feel like the flying would be more fun in Europe and better employment prospects.

You can't exercise the privileges of the IR R outside of UK airspace so landing at Schiphol in IMC with an IR R would be illegal.

General reviews on CAE easy jet program

Hi, I'm currently a high school student looking to see if CAE and then going to easy jet after that is the right way for me, but I've seen some off putting reviews of CAE on here so I was wondering if I could get more opinions on them, if it's worth it, how they treat cadets, if you go straight into easy jet once you "graduate", etc. Much appreciated!

Beware of flight school like the aforementioned dishing out promises of a job at the end. There is NO guarantee! Still need to pass a job interview at the end of your training, which you may or may not pass. Chances are indeed in your favour, but no promises.
