**This program is currently closed**


easyJet is one of Europe's most successful airlines and has partnered with L3 CTS for airline pilot training solutions since its first flights in 1995. Today we remain easyJet's preferred provider of newly qualified airline pilots.


The Generation easyJet Pilot Training Program is at the leading edge of Airline Pilot training innovation and provides more opportunity than ever to launch an Airline Pilot career with Europe's leading airline, through L3 Airline Academy.


Two routes, one career


There are two Generation easyJet routes to the flight deck:


1. easyJet MPL

Successful applicants to the MPL in partnership with easyJet will be invited to join the Multi-crew Pilot License (MPL) route – an Airline Pilot career program at the leading edge of Airline Pilot training. Selected and mentored by easyJet from day one, you will embark upon a unique route of training which will take you directly to the role of Co-Pilot on Airbus A320 aircraft, flying easyJet routes around Europe.


2. easyJet Integrated ATPL

This route provides a further opportunity to join easyJet for those who successfully complete selection and join the L3 Airline Academy Integrated ATPL.  This easyJet-focused route includes easyJet specific intermediate phase of training tailored to easyJet A320 aircraft and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and concludes with easyJet A320 type rating.

Successful graduation from the Generation easyJet Pilot Training Program will provide you with:

If you complete the easyJet MPL:


  • A Multi-Crew Pilot License on A320 aircraft with easyJet
  • MPL/ATPL Theoretical Knowledge and examination passes
  • Upset Prevention and Recovery Training
  • A320 aircraft type rating


If you complete the program through the easyJet Integrated ATPL:


  • ATPL Theoretical Knowledge
  • Commercial Pilot License with Instrument Rating and Multi-Engine Piston class rating (CPL/IR/MEP)
  • Multi-crew Cooperation (MCC) completion certificate
  • Upset Prevention and Recovery Training
  • A320 aircraft Type Rating


Upon commencement of Co-Pilot flying with easyJet, you will continue to gain Line Oriented Experience (LOE) that will conclude with a final 'line check' with an easyJet training Captain.


Please note:


  • Holders of an MPL may apply for an ATPL upon meeting regulatory requirements as your easyJet career progresses.
  • An MPL does not permit you to work as a professional pilot on smaller aircraft that only require a single pilot without undertaking further single-pilot training.
  • Employment by easyJet is subject to maintaining the required performance standards throughout training and there being no change in easyJet’s operational requirements
