Pilot Training

You can expect the best. Every year, we welcome over 300 pilots into easyJet as Captains, experienced Co Pilots and Cadets. We will help you to develop and ultimately take on a future leadership positions.


Every year we look for new enthusiastic and passionate pilots to join the team. We partner with CTC Aviation, CAE Oxford Aviation Academy and FTEJerez who train cadets from all over Europe and beyond, keen to take on their first full-time flying role. You can join easyJet via two main routes, the MPL or Integrated ATPL courses – we’ve included more information below to help you decide.

The choice of which training provider to join is very much a personal one. Take the time to learn all about them and the support they can offer to new pilots. You can also visit open days to have the chance to speak to them in person. If you choose to join us as a cadet, you can look forward to fantastic training on one of these programmes and you can also look to progress to the left-hand seat within around 7 years.

If you join us as a Cadet, you can look forward to fantastic training on one of these programmes:

easyJet MPL (Multi-crew Pilot Licence)

You can join this course with one of our flight training partners even if you have little or no previous flying experience and be trained to achieve the necessary qualifications in less than two years. The easyJet MPL First Officer course is delivered by the flight training schools but uses our own specific Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and the concepts of Crew Resource Management (CRM). At the end of the programme, providing all examinations are passed to a reasonable level, an MPL cadet will join easyJet as a Second Officer on contract.

Integrated ATPL Course

You can join this course even if you have little or no previous flying experience and be trained to achieve a ‘frozen ATPL’ in approximately 18 months. At this point, you’ll be eligible to work as a co-pilot with an airline once your specific aircraft type training has been completed. We carry out annual assessments with each of the two flight training schools to bring in a number of frozen ATPL cadets once the assessment has been passed, and they can demonstrate great results during their training.

Continual training for easyJet Pilots

Our customers deserve the very best, which is why we work hard to make sure our pilots have the right skills, the latest knowledge and access to all the training they need to be just that – the best. Our dedicated training team achieve this by providing:

  • An annual LOE/ISS (Line Orientated Evaluation/Intermediate Simulator Session)*
  • An annual LPC/OPC (Licence and Operator’s Proficiency Checks)*
  • Two line checks a year with a Training Captain observing flight sectors
  • CRM training and various safety and emergency training sessions.

* These involve two four-hour simulator sessions over two days and two hours’ briefing/debriefing each day.

Training throughout your career     

Every time you work with our training team, our focus will always be on your personal and professional development, so you can improve your skills and knowledge in all areas relevant to our operations. We also offer such training as:

Pilots new to easyJet – support flights with a Training Captain to develop flying skills and knowledge

Experienced Senior First Officers – command assessment flights with Training Captains to help them become a Line Captain

All pilots – the opportunity to fly with a Training Captain in a non-training context to gain invaluable feedback for your development
