CTC Wings easyJet MPL includes optional BSc Honours degree

unnamedCTC Aviation has announced the opening of its first 2014 application window for the new CTC WINGS MPL Route in partnership with easyJet.  The programme will see 36 successful applicants begin their training with CTC Aviation from July 2014 and begin operating as A320 First Officers for easyJet within two years.

For the first time, the programme also offers trainee pilots the chance to opt in to ‘the easyJet degree’ and add a BSc Honours Degree in Professional Aviation Pilot Practice to their qualifications when they graduate from CTC Aviation.

‘The easyJet Degree’ – the first of its kind in the world – was launched by easyJet’s CEO Carolyn McCall when she was speaking at CTC Aviation’s annual graduation in December 2013. McCall explained, “I believe that it is absolutely vital to easyJet’s future that we have a pipeline of talented young people coming through and that’s why I am delighted we are now working in partnership with CTC Aviation and Middlesex University to offer a degree course for our pilots.”

The easyJet degree, exclusively available through CTC Aviation, is an optional enhancement to the programme.  Developed in partnership with CTC Aviation, the Aviation Skills Partnership and Middlesex University, the first two years of the easyJet Degree will be undertaken through the normal CTC WINGS syllabus and the third year is achieved by undertaking jet type-rating, line training and two modules of easyJet-centred directed study whilst flying at easyJet.

The first 2014 application window will be open from 5 – 18 May 2014 and offers the opportunity for 36 successful applicants to progress into training with CTC Aviation and ultimately be employed by easyJet as A320 First Officers.

easyJet’s Chief Pilot, Richard Nanton will be the guest speaker at CTC Aviation’s forthcoming Careers Event on Saturday 10 May.
