Embraer 190 First Officer Cadet
Thank you for entering the British Airways Cityflyer / FTEJerez Mentored Airline Pilot Scheme application website. Before you apply via the online application form shown below, we strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with the Mentored scheme.
As this scheme will be conducted using the Multi-crew Pilots Licence (MPL) syllabus under UK CAA approval, we also suggest that you study the details of this licence. If having read the information provided you think you fit the initial profile, we invite you to apply online.
British Airways Cityflyer & FTEJerez
Welcome to the British Airways Cityflyer Mentored Airline Pilot Scheme and MPL course. I am Captain Steve Cook, nominated person for Flight Operations and charged by the airline to manage this cadet programme.
This Mentored Scheme has been developed with our training partner, FTEJerez, to provide a source of quality preselected pilots to crew our Embraer aircraft. You will undertake training under the Multi-crew Pilots Licence (MPL) route to the right-hand seat of our aircraft. This course has been specifically designed to teach you all of the key elements necessary for you to successfully transition to a British Airways Cityflyer flight deck.
During your training in Jerez, your progress will be mentored throughout the course by the British Airways Cityflyer Liaison Pilot. As the final phase of this course, students will undergo an Embraer Type Rating course paid by the airline (excluding travel costs and accommodation).
Selection for this cohort will follow a similar format and battery of tests as in previous FTEJerez schemes. We are looking for a group of mentored pilots who will be offered positions on a course commencing training in Jerez in February 2023.
May I take this opportunity to wish you every success with your application and the selection process.
Captain Steve Cook
Head of Flight Operations
British Airways Cityflyer

To be eligible for this scheme you must have a minimum of 2 A-Level passes, Grade C or above (or equivalent), and have 5 GCSE passes including Maths, English and a Science subject at Grade C or above, as well as the right to live and work in the UK.
If successful, you will have to fund FTE’s MPL programme. The Embraer Type Rating course will be paid by the airline (excluding travel costs and accommodation)

1st attempt, ground and flying exams
Renewal of the Class One Medical
All training material

Throughout the training, the British Airways Cityflyer cadet’s performance will not only be monitored by FTE’s training team, but there will also be an oversight by British Airways Cityflyer’s assigned Liaison Pilot.
If successful throughout the training at FTEJerez, no further selection will be required by British Airways Cityflyer and you will flow straight into an Embraer type rating course as a part of the MPL training.
Candidates will be able to apply between the 3rd and 16th of October 2022. When applying, you will be required to create a user name and password. With this information, you will be given access to a personal Candidate Area, where you can complete your application by uploading your documents.
Please note that the application must be completed within 3 days, counting from the first submission.
Should your application be successful in progressing to the next phase you will be required to complete FTE´s assessments in the UK and online. Should you reach the final element of the selection process, you will be required to travel, at your own expense, to British Airways Cityflyer´s offices at London City Airport. Currently, this one-day selection phase is expected to take place in late November / early December 2022.
Throughout the selection process, you will be advised as to whether or not your application has been progressed to the next stage. However, due to the large number of applications, neither British Airways Cityflyer nor FTEJerez will be in a position to give individual detailed feedback on your performance.
