1000h TT desirable, recruiting for LGW, LTN + Berlin bases 27/Nov/17
SO/NEC SO: 1250 factored hrs required to be eligible for permanent contract (will be NEC contract as above) although perm. contracts on the continent may be offered with lower eligibility criteria dependent on requirements. (Recent TR/NON-TR recruitment may possibly involve pilots coming straight onto permanent contracts as opposed to flexicrew - this being the case, permanent contract will be 90% basic for first 6 months during 'probation' of the pay scale relevant to previous experience and factored hours) 1/May/13
The MPL being conducted between easyJet and CAE OAA is a partly sponsored scheme by which easyJet cover the costs of the A320 type rating as well as the base and line training. On top of this sponsorship agreement easyJet act as mentors providing their future pilots with opportunities to visit easyJet bases, gain insight into the workings of the company and keep updated on current procedures, news and future plans. The OAA accommodation is optional and many students choose the cheaper option of renting houses and flats in the local areas surrounding CAE OAA. The cost to students on such a scheme still totals to approximately £105500 but comes with the guarantee of a Second Officer job position upon completion of training.   6/Mar/17
