EasyJet loan plan for new pilots

Loan funding to enable aspiring pilots to train for jobs at easyJet through CTC Aviation is to be underwritten by the airline. 

The airline and the training company have again joined forces and are accepting applications for the CTC Wings Multi-crew Pilot Licence (MPL) programme. 

The full-time course is open to applicants with little or no flying experience and for successful candidates leads directly to a job as an easyJet co-pilot.

CTC operates its own training sponsorship and “Performance Protection” plan, while outstanding students will now also be able to apply for all or part of their training loan (between £30,000 to £100,000) to be underwritten.

Successful aspiring pilots applying for courses join an 18-month programme at CTC’s purpose-built crew training centres in the UK and New Zealand for training on latest-generation aircraft and simulators.

The course is focused on easyJet-specific multi-crew operations, aircraft type and the airline’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

It is designed to equip trainees for Airbus A320-type rating training, line training and, ultimately, a professional career with easyJet.

In partnership with the British Women Pilots’ Association, easyJet will also underwrite the full training loan for six successful female candidates as part of its “Amy Johnson Flying Initiative”.
