easyJet Pilot Recruitment

easyJet Non-Rated Cadets for the Amy Johnson Flying Initiative

Website easyJet

Join the Amy Johnson Flying Initiative

We are generation easyJet, the people who have reinvented European air travel over the last twenty years. We believe in shaking things up, getting-on and achieving. And, for the past three years one of the things we have been doing is tackling an industry-wide stereotype, with the help of our Amy Johnson Flying Initiative. If you want to be part of generation easyJet, then join our pilot training programme and be empowered to succeed as one of our new entrant pilots.

We’re opening our doors to all inexperienced cadets, who have trained at either our approved ATOs or outside them. This is your chance to be part of generation easyJet. Together with world-class training and a faster route to command than anywhere else, we’ll even offer you enhanced support with your fees.

If you are selected, you’ll then be asked to complete some online and psychometric tests, before being invited to attend an assessment day. These will be held at Gatwick on either 05th or 06th September 2018. And these dates are set in stone! So, if you can’t make them, please don’t apply. We will hopefully have another opportunity for you soon.

In order to standardise your previous experience, you’ll need to be ready to complete (or re-complete) your MCC / JOC in November prior to undertaking an A320 Type Rating. You will need to fund the MCC / JOC however easyJet will fund the cost of the Type Rating.

If you are successful at assessment, training will start from November 2018 and you can expect to be employed by easyJet by this winter.

When applying please be sure to upload a CV showing that you meet the minimum requirements.

Good luck!
